Today I just read Corona Renderer 3 for 3DS MAX was announced:
https://www.aecmag.com/technology-mainm ... -rendering
Please note that I am very unfamiliar with the capabilities of Corona so this may be a stupid question:
I was wondering: Is Corona Renderer for ARCHICAD based on Corona 2 or Corona 3?
It's an Alpha version, so if I had to guess, I would say they are using the engine or core for Corona 2 and not Corona 3.
(it could even be lower than the Corona 2 engine , if we we're being really honest here).
Corona 3 has some special features (like denoising in the Interactive Render window using the GPU with a NVIDIA functions) that don't seem to be in the ArchiCAD plugin or don't seem likely to make it into the final version.
All that being said, an Alpha version is quite a while away from a final release version - and how knows how many versions of the alpha and any subsequent betas they'll have before we get to the final version?
Which in turn also means there's the possibility they could switch engine cores sometime within that process to the most recent (or next to recent) version before or at the final version.
OF course I could be wrong in all this since it's all based on my knowledge in having worked with the 3ds Max version and now working with the ArchiCAD plugin and Tom Grimes could pop in at any time and say I'm wrong.
