Corona Renderer for ARCHICAD Alpha 2 released

Press release 2018-11-19 14:34 article  > Software

You can download and test it now.

Since this is an Alpha version, it is far from feature complete, and there are very likely some bugs in the software, so please keep that in mind (especially if considering using it for any commercial projects).

Corona Renderer for ARCHICAD, test renders
Some test renders from Corona Renderer for ARCHICAD



The plugin is already quite advanced and supports:

  • Interactive Rendering takes the guesswork out of setting up materials, lighting and scene composition, and removes the need for test renders.
  • The Corona VFB offers a wide range of post-processing effects without needing to use external software, with tone mapping, bloom and glare, vignetting, and more.
  • Denoising, which can reduce render times by up to 70%.
  • Corona Materials and Textures with a custom texture editor.
  • Support for native ARCHICAD geometry, lights, and materials.

Note: The current Alpha is for ARCHICAD for Windows; in the future, there may be a version for macOS.
