Render Legion released Friday, Nov. 23 Corona Renderer 3 for 3ds Max, accelerating look development for architectural artists. With faster interactive rendering (IR) and an enhanced version of the NVIDIA AI Denoiser, artists can iterate quickly, using a responsive, detail-rich viewport to guide their way.
The new IR system offers quick impressions of scenes, helping artists assess key elements like lighting early on in the design process. With immediate interactivity, artists can iterate faster than ever before, cycling through objects, materials and compositions with a smoother, intuitive workflow. As they work, the new AI denoiser will kick in to remove artifacts and grain, leaving a clear image that promotes faster decisions. Thanks to its unique integration, the AI Denoiser in Corona Renderer can preserve more image details, including reflections and refractions, than any other implementation.
Improved displacement tools can now create better quality imagery with no increase in memory usage or time. Current estimates put memory savings at around 50 percent for artists, with no loss in quality or details.
For enhanced randomization, a new Randomization by Component ID map has also been embedded into the Corona MultiMap and UvwRandomizer to make the randomization of individual objects like leaves, tiles or floorboards even easier.
Corona Renderer 3 is Render Legion’s second update of 2018, with the next update to hit studios early next year. Among the planned features: an implementation of lightweight, fully automatic caustics and a new Light Solver.
