Thanks for your interest in Corona Renderer! Just to let you know that Corona Renderer for ARCHICAD is now publicly available, with the Alpha 2 version just released today. More info over on the blog post - https://corona-renderer.com/blog/corona ... -released/
Hi Tom,

Thanks for the update.
I've downloaded it and will be thoroughly testing it as soon as possible (well, there goes my weekend.)

Would you guys like feedback at the original thread in your forum (linked in the second post above) where you originally posted gauging interest in the plugin or is there some other thread you guys set up that you would prefer?

EDIT :
Never mind.
I found the Corona for ArchiCAD page on your forum where all the bug reporting and feature requests will go.

So for anyone else interested and testing this plugin give them feedback at this page:-
https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php?board=45.0

Also, I hope Tom doesn't mind me reposting this here, but if you guys know any Mac developers familiar with ArchiCAD for Mac and the ArchiCAD API in general who would be interested in working with the Corona guys, give them a shout as that will greatly help in them developing the Mac version of the plugin.

Great job, guys!

Howdy! I don't mind the repost at all :) We definitely want to get the news out to the ARCHICAD community, so the more sharing, quoting and notifying, the better! Sorry that we've stolen your weekend away from you - hope you had nothing too exciting planned that you'll miss out on now! ;)

Thanks for the link to the thread on our forums - yes please, post all feedback requests, bug reports, etc. there. That way our development team will be able to see and track and reply to those.

We're always looking for developers (for pretty much any platform), so do direct anyone good coders that you know to our jobs page and tell 'em to join the team!

Thanks!
Tom

My weekend AND my sleep.
But it's all good.
I'm going to have so sooo much fun with this, as I can already tell from the brief testing I've already done with it so far.

I can't believe that this is just an Alpha version.
It's so polished and thorough so far (and very familiar with how I already know it from the 3dS Max Version) with so many features already.

You guys have done a really amazing job. I can't say that enough.

First time I heard about this endeavour I didn't believe it was true.
Yesterday I downloaded the Alpha and tried and can say only one thing - Thank you!

Finally a premium render engine comes to us - ArchiCAD users who were neglected by almost all major players since we are not Autodesk owned company.
This is a total game changer! I'm looking forward to the major releases with so much hope!

I was waiting for this! Wonderful news for a rainy weekend :)

Render elements, realtime rendering (IR) & render speed... Nothing to say :)

Bug, Review, etc // I'll try and note here my experiements:
  • There is no alpha at 2D trees and images are upside down.
  • Rotating Corona Light is tedious.

Better to post the bugs and issues at the Corona forum (at the link I posted above), rather than here.

The developers probably won't be visiting or checking this forum but they frequently visit their own user forums and even interact with and speak to users directly.
