What attracted me to Corona in the first place was its simplicity. It just felt a lot easier to use than many of the other render engines I have used in the past.

As the Founder and Creative Director at Creative Lighting, my continuous pursuit of excellence and innovation led me to Chaos Corona, a tool that has revolutionized our workflow and redefined our creative expression.
Florin Botea
Senior 3D Artist
I remember telling my girlfriend (also a 3D artist at Brick) about this new render engine, and she tried it out before me. Right from the first try she managed to do a really nice interior image with not one but two different moods using LightMix. I was hooked. I started watching tutorials, gave it a try, and fell in love.
