Sounds like a good plan to me, hope it will work out well for the industry in the future.
The first thing you should know is both Corona and V-Ray are here to stay. Both products will continue to be developed independently by the same teams that you’ve come to trust, with the same level of innovation that you’ve come to expect. Now we can share ideas, research and technology to make both renderers as powerful as possible.
Chaos Group is already working with the Render Legion team to make Corona and V-Ray even better. For example, DMC sampler will be in Corona 1.7, and Chaos Group is already optimizing V-Ray’s dome light with the help of the Render Legion team. And that’s just the beginning.
