Corona Renderer for Cinema 4D Installation Process

Whether you're installing a paid or beta version for Windows or Mac, Corona Renderer comes with an automated Universal Installer, which makes the installation process very easy:

  1. Run the Universal Installer.

    Note: If you are using User Account Control (UAC), a security prompt will open - you will need to confirm that the installer can continue. The security window will also tell you if the file you have just run is a certified, genuine copy coming directly from Render Legion and does not contain any harmful code.

  2. Carefully read the EULA and select "I accept the terms and conditions". Then click "next".

    Mac users: Make sure you install the Corona renderer in the same Hard drive where Cinema 4D is installed.

  3. On the "Install Type" screen, you can select:
    1. Typical
      Install Corona plugins for all Cinema 4D versions detected.
      This is recommended for most users. It is the fastest, fully automated installation type.

    2. Custom
      Manually choose features to install and where to install them.
      This is an advanced installation method, allowing to choose the specific items to be installed and their locations. Useful, for example, when using different Cinema 4D versions and willing to install Corona only for one of them.

    3. Unpack files
      This unpacks all the installer files into a specified directory. Useful for advanced users and debugging, for example, when installing the plugins manually or if there were some problems during the typical installation.

  4. The installer will tell you if your hardware can run a standard full-speed version of Corona Renderer or a legacy version.

  5. After successful installation, you should see the following message: "Corona Renderer was successfully installed on your computer". Any errors will be marked with red font.

  6. Before running Cinema 4D, make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.

  7. After successful installation, you will be able to activate the Corona license. Please refer to this guide: Activating Corona for Cinema 4D.
