Re: Luxcore vs Cycles Final/Viewport

Hi Sharlybg I don’t like to bother asking you the question, what is the meaning of compering clay model renders of different renderers? Imagine one renderer to have clay render optimized algorithms omitting all usual calculations just to get a fast as possible preview. Its result would not differ mu...

V -1 be set under the hood and show V 0 in the node?
Do you mean V 1 instead of V 0, zero seems not to make any sense.

Re: Which way is up?

Is this issue the same as the one that I'm having importing baked textures to Blender from the luxcoreui? Using Blender’s default cube, which is already unwrapped, then the baked textures created in Luxcoreui need to be rotated by 180° (z axis (from top view)) then scaled by *-1 (x axis) when re -i...

Anyway I think I've managed to solve this by parenting the scene and rotating it 90 degrees. Things seem fine so far.
Good. This is the solution I had recommended you. Seems to be the easiest and most reliable way to me.

Re: CGI tech news box

1) Also those examples you took from the pdf look terible, but maybe they're underselling this tech? 2) I'd rather see some easy to do full capture system. Look what xrite does here: https://www.xrite.com/categories/appearance/total-appearance-capture-ecosystem 1) Do you think so? Well, they are hi...

Re: CGI tech news box

Interesting: https://news.developer.nvidia.com/sharing-physically-based-materials-between-renderers-with-mdl/ Oh god... Did you find anyone (professional) actually using this mdl stuff? Why do you find it interesting? It's been around for few years afaik and I never seen anyone using this and I nev...

Re: Unexpected rectangles; Missing sky reflection

It is a numerical precision problem, your scene is several kilometers large while you are looking only to few meters. Just set the minimum epsilon value to "0.01" and it will render fine. The other option is to increase the distance between water, pool bottom and ground. The problem is noticeable w...

Re: Vulkan

Please consider AMD ROCm, HIP. It works only on Linux, it doesn't support your GPU (i.e. Navi) or other vendor GPUs ... it is a joke :roll: You are right. It is a mess because there are a lot of misleading words in HIP documents regarding cuda, windows, etcetera. ROCm is definitively Linux only and...

Re: Unexpected rectangles; Missing sky reflection

1) Where come these rectangles from with light tracing? It looks like a numerical precision problem, is the bottom of the pool touching the ground ? How is modeled the water ?Try to rise the poll a little and/or to lower the water a little. I replaced the mesh of the water with a simpler version. S...

Re: Vulkan

Now let's hope AMD understand it is the only possible option to replace CUDA ... don't hold your breath :roll: Intel is focused too much on their hardware (cpu, gpu, fpga).
