Re: When is principled shader coming out?

the Disney material doesn't account for a lot of effects that can be present in a scene, for instance multiple scattering or irridescents. admittedly we don't account for the latter yet ourselves, but I'm hoping one of the open source papers released last year will be implemented as part of the new...

I use distant light also as it render faster in interior without fireflies ;)
But mate, that's literally the reason why I question default sun behavior in luxcore in the first place.

Re: Usability and Luxcore workflow streamlining ideas

I still cannot follow the request for an artistic sun. But if as Dade said sun gathers fireflies in the way of path render then sure there is a solution required like architectural glass. By the way, you can disable the sun's visibility to specular rays to get a similar effect (maybe disable glossy...

Re: Usability and Luxcore workflow streamlining ideas

Are you aware about nd filters and lights and flashes? As a photog I can take several pictures with filters and separate flashes and lights and filters and exposures and then mix and match and mask to get something. If I wanted to do the same I'd need to render all them lights and exposures and so ...

Re: Light strategies and importance change lighting

It's causing paranoya and depression. Should be avoided if possible I meant technically....or at least as technical as possible for a layman to understand ;) Ok, so to put ot shortly. 1.Performance, which is the least of it's problems is insane. No previews possible using BCD in any type of product...

I quite like BCD. What's wrong with it?

And once it's all working drop all the diffuse and glossy etc nodes.

I thought the Principle Shader was an 'addition' to, not an 'instead' of!
I hope it begins like that... then the other nodes become obsolete and be dropped :D

Re: Light strategies and importance change lighting

I do hope that luxcore isn't an ideology and all that unbiased bs that simply don't exist. "true" values mean nothing if no one can use them or find them useful. Thing need to look and behave convincing, that's it. I guess you know the sayings about lies and easily getting tangled up in them. If yo...

Re: Usability and Luxcore workflow streamlining ideas

I cannot follow the topic artistic/physical sun. Is there any photographer out there? The sun is bright, it is much bigger than earth. Earth is surrounded by sunlight but only from one side, night is nothing more than earth‘s own shadow. Even a cloudy sky is brighter than standard dimm bulb which i...
