Do Cinema 4D lights work with Corona Renderer?

Yes they do. Corona Renderer does indeed support the basic features of Cinema 4D's native lights and luminance material. They may even be used with Corona Renderer's LightMix editor for fine tuning that final look. The example above was lit making use of the luminance channel using a Cinema 4D material and an HDRI also applied to the luminance channel. It is worth mentioning that realistic results may vary between Cinema 4D's native lights and those included with Corona Renderer (which we recommend). 

Note: Not all features of Cinema 4D's native lights are supported by Corona Renderer. These may include Shadow types, Lens effects, Surface/Volume caustics and Visibility.
