Chaos Group recently announced a student rendering contest titled ‘Illumination’ wherein students will get a chance to win V-ray, Corona licenses, Chaos Cloud credits and much more.
Touted to give more lighting options, V-Ray and Corona’s latest features are built to allow students to bring out their absolute best. With this rendering challenge, Chaos Group aims to make the community aware of the potential of these software updates.
On their website, they shared, “You could produce a moody character study lit with a single 40-watt bulb, tap into a perfect golden-hour sunset for a tranquil architectural scene or journey to a distant galaxy and discover what it would be like to catch some rays under two suns. Submit your best work for a chance to win an awesome prize package.”
Students must submit their best renders using any software to model their vision but they will have to render in V-Ray or Corona, on any platform with a legitimately acquired license. Computer graphics students all around the world who are currently enrolled in an accredited program or course can take part in this contest.
