install corona for blender

Update : this is not working with the newest blender release 2.78 !
update 2 :
today i’m gonna show you how you can install corona for blender without any problems,
there is tutorial here  https://corona-renderer.com/wiki/blender2corona/installation but still not good for the artist who still new to external renderers .
now i’m gonna make it easy for you , with exact steps to make sure you installed corona correctly so you can start playing with it now !

1- download this python exporter and place it inside your blender addon script folder :

CORONA PYTHON SCRIPT

drop corona files inside blender addon scripts folder

2-download the latest version of corona standalone here and extract it (and remember where !) :

extract corona standalone
                                                                                                                                                                                                        CORONA STANDALONE (45days trial) (you can use winrar to extract it)

3- now fire blender and go to Files > user preferences > add-ons :

write Corona and activate the addon , then choose corona path and select the folder where you’ve extracted corona standalone

 

4-select corona as render engine and we are almost there ! (wut still more ?! )

chose corona from render engine

5- now before clicking the render button , you need to choose export path ( where corona will export meshes and files ) :
its doesnt matter where you will export but to keep everything clean ,create a new folder inside corona standalone and name it “corona meshes”.

export destination

 

Now you are ready to use corona render ! feel free to leave a comment if you have questions !

here is a test that i made a while ago using this render (10mn):
