Distance-Aware Materials and Powerful Sky Model Offer More Control Over 3D Environments
PRAGUE, Czech Republic – August 25, 2020 – Today, Chaos Czech releases Corona Renderer 6 for Cinema 4D, a new update to the most artist-friendly renderer for C4D. Artists and designers can now bring more realism to the objects and environments they create in a faster, more creative way.
A new Sky Model can now accurately depict twilight and dawn, providing gorgeous results down to 2.85 degrees below the horizon. Because this model is fully procedural, it is also easy to animate, enabling the simple creation of time lapse sunrises and sunsets. Multiple skies/suns can be also added to any scene, so artists can toggle through options like dusk and afternoon using LightMix.
With the new Distance Map, artists can create procedural materials that understand their proximity to other objects in the scene. Instead of blending boundary lines, artists can now create immaculate coastlines, dirty window sills and ground-hugging fog with ease. Users can also use the map to drive scattering whenever they want to include different grass lengths or twigs under trees.
Other New Features Include:
- Adaptive Environment Sampler – Cleaner, more accurate environment lighting replaces the need to add skylight portals.
- New Bloom and Glare Controls – New lens effects allow greater realism and creativity with the inclusion of lens dust, scratches and more.
- Texture Randomization – Automatically remove tiling artifacts with the new UVWRandomizer for more believability across a scene.
