Being in lockdown due to the pandemic provided a perfect setting to experiment with a new architectural visualization engine. For the past decade and more, I had been using Vray as my primary render engine and while it is comprehensive, it does take a lot of tinkering to come up with a satisfactory result.
However, with the corona renderer the results are almost instant. With minimal settings to play with, lighting, materials and the render setup, which furthermore assisted by the native material library that comes included with the renderer.
While Vray is more technical and harder to learn, Corona is very user friendly and intuitive. Its simplicity is mind boggling compared to the results it provides in such a short time. The speed at which it attains near perfect results is refreshing to see.
As I experiment more I will share the differences that I find in future blog posts.
