Re: Mac OS

Rob, thanks for your effort.

May I suggest to defer the first step to the end. Chances are good that many users would be fine with just the latest macOS version.

Re: luxcore materials in blender

I'm going to check the code. My objective is to manually create the materials that I cannot import from the models/scenes I create with pyluxcore. The super-objective is to understand and find a way around the issue that I have to create lenses with hyper-fine meshes to avoid strange artifacts on th...

Re: luxcore materials in blender

Yes, that is what I did, and what I see.

But I'm expecting to see the materials from the LuxCore SDL Reference Manual v2.0. e.g. roughmatte, and the extra properties like cauchyc for glass. Where are they?

luxcore materials in blender

I installed the blender add-on, and switched to luxcore renderer. But I can't find the luxcore materials (e.g. roughmatte) and luxcore material properties.

How?

import scene into blender

I could import the meshes (.ply generated with filesaver) into blender. Is it possible import the full scene (incl. materials, lighting, camera, aso.)?

Re: ImportError: libOpenCL.so.1 when activating add-on

solved it with

Code: Select all

sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev
I feared that it would destroy my manual cuda installation. But it seems to work fine.

ImportError: libOpenCL.so.1 when activating add-on

After installing Ubuntu 18.04 I had to re-install quite everything. For cuda there are unresolvable conflicts for packages. So I had to use install cuda-9-0 with run script. After installing the luxcore file, when I try the activate the add-on I get a traceback from BlendLuxCore/__init__.py: ImportE...

Re: coated glass

Instead of splitting the mesh into submeshes for each material, you can also use a black/white texture as input of the amount slot of the mix material. Thanks, that sounds very promising. I interpret this as a means of discrete/linear masking. I've to investigate how to create and apply such a text...

Re: glass parameters

Nope, the total is "80%" * kt + "20%" * kr. Like I wrote, kr and kt are scale factors, not absolute values. If kr = 1 and kt =1, the result is just "80%" * 1 + "20%" * 1 = "100%". If kr = 0.5 and kt = 0.5, the result is "80%" * 0.5 + "10%" * 0.5 = "50%". I think I begin to understand. So based on F...
