The New Licensing
Corona 8 comes with an updated licensing mechanism. Here are the basic facts:
- This is the same licensing mechanism that is used in V-Ray and other Chaos products.
- To start using Corona 8, install it, start 3ds Max, set Corona as your active Renderer, go to Render Setup > System > About Corona, and click “Activate license”.
- You will see the Chaos License Server open in your internet browser.
- Sign in with your registered email address and password (the same you are using to activate Corona or other Chaos products).
- If you have an active Corona license, you are done - your license is now activated!
- If you do not have an active license, you will see a dialog box open where you can click "Activate Trial", which will add a license for the Trial onto your Chaos account - and now you are done, your license is activated!
