A great up and coming renderer that we’ve been keeping our eye on has just announced that they are releasing the Alpha version of their renderer for free. It is the Alpha v6, and it is a permanent license.
Alpha v6, which was released in March 2014, is a fully functional version.
This, directly from the company’s download page:
“It is a very capable render engine, and we are giving it for free to anyone who does not want or is not able to afford Corona Renderer 1.0. There is no time lock or limitation of any kind. It can be used both for educational and commercial projects. More info in our blog post.
NOTE: Corona Alpha v6 will not receive any bug fixes, support or our future attention. This software is available “as is” without warranty of any kind.”
