with node image texture error

Got the same problem with texture,the fix for me was to connect a UVmap node to it !

@Doisy_Didier is right. But if you installed v1.6 standalone (which is not free) then you don’t need to connect UV map into it.

yes it works, thanks

there is also a paid version? what’s the difference between the free version and the paid version?

Corona Standalone 3.0 is FREE and UNLIMITED with just one integrator (Progressive Pathtracer) and without UHD Caching.
Corona Standalone 1.6 has all integrators, Material Preview mode and UHD Caching.

Note: I said about Corona Renderer official standalone not about my FREE addon.

Insane! Testing it out right now and i gotta say its fantastic. I’ve been working in blender for about 3 years now and i was about to move to C4D Just for corona and seeing this just made my day! Thank you so much for all your great work and effort! I do have 2 questions too:
Will/Does it have support for newer corona versions?
Will there be an interactive render in the viewport?

First of all, welcome to our forums. Thanks for your kind of efforts. I’m planning to support Corona renderer 7 or 8 standalone version BUT waiting also responses from Chaos Corona Czech team. They are gave me a small documentation for 7.0 also BUT it is not full-readable. That’s why I’ m waiting…
About IPR, it is not possible (maybe for now, don’t know).

Thank you very much for the reply, that makes sense and I understand completely, I still can’t get over the fact you actually managed to do it. It’s really awesome, man. Appreciate it and can’t wait to see what you can do with it! Best of luck on your journey!
