may be the way of reusing Cycles node(Layer Weight) is exist-?
I was thinking of using the Fresnel node to mix two materials, which i recall from a while back.
But I just looked at it again, and the output type doesn't seem to match anything? Am I missing something?

Re: Magnifying lens not accurate

Luxcore is definitely capable of doing physically accurate optics. I've done a couple things with it by now. Just last week i roughly modelled a 3D-printed magnification 3 telescope that I made from some cheap lenses I have. I roughly modelled the lenses by looks to have a working model - and it all...

Re: Volumetric caustics in the wild

I guess for the most part it isn't even faked, they just use massive render farms ;) This seems to be a recent blog post on the subject, featuring some extreme numbers: https://www.awsthinkbox.com/blogs/the-evolution-of-rendering e.g. about Lord of the Rings it says: However, that's nothing compared...

Re: Tiled OIDN Denoising

Some test images can be found here: https://owncloud.gwdg.de/index.php/s/mkgXCBpkoQF0Egz I only denoised the 16 sample image with OIDN v0.9 for comparison now. As I said before, the behaviour changed a bit, especially at low samples I noticed some color differences between 0.9 and 1.0 in this scene....

Re: Tiled OIDN Denoising

Ok, I downloaded it today and tried it out. Worked directly, so no broken dependencies or something (I didn't try Blender viewport denoise yet). The change in the code was as easy as I thought. From a first quick test on the LuxMarkHotel @4K and 20 samples, there is a visible difference between the ...

Re: Tiled OIDN Denoising

Their implementation of tiled denoising now exposes it with a "max. memory" input, which is nice so we can now directly expose it as a memory setting instead of number of pixels. I could give it a try later this week, should be easy enough to implement as far as I see it. Just need to rename the til...

Re: Random optics stuff

With no lens formula it's hard to get the lens in focus. I played little with the Zeiss ZM 35mm 1.4 Distagon design, but the Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan looks interesting. It's a 3 element lens with soap bubble bokeh like below: Indeed, the exact curvatures are very important :) Fortunately, you c...

Re: Artifacts with hybrid/bidir/light paths

Ok I relaize I had some wrong thoughts earlier, plus some info missing: - I thought of the Suzanne head as intersectable, but it is not an emitter itself. However, it is matte, so you can connect to the Sun from there. -Also, there is a "detector" behind the lens, the usual matte-translucent slab. S...

Artifacts with hybrid/bidir/light paths

I have been trying to do more modelling of lens systems, this time with a simple Cooke Triplet. blend-file attached. In my scene I only have a 5 cubes with emission (they produce some defocus circles), and a Suzanne model illuminated by a Sun lamp. With these being intersectable sources, rendering w...

Re: Hybrid Back/Forward path tracing (aka BiDir without MIS)

A nice set of features, if you ask me, but again I have no idea about computation cost or implementation complexity, let alone how many users could be interested. Don't get me wrong, I don't believe either that it will be worth the effort to implement all this. :D I've been trying to get lens flare...
