Re: How to install STANDALONE on Mac?

I can't look into the dmg right now (for absence of mac and windows-apps that can read it), but generally I can tell you this: - LuxCore standalone is not a full 3D software like Blender. You still need to create files with mesh data, and text-files for the scene and render settings by some other me...

Re: Disney BRDF material

Hi all, since I have been quiet for a bit I just wanted to drop a line that I'm still on it. I got to start writing the implementation before christmas, but couldn't really continue for the last few weeks. I will try to advance a bit more over the next days. Otherwise I'm now caught up in moving bec...

The question is if PGI really will resolve all missing paths or only a subset like it does when used with hybrid path?
What will remain problematic is specular-only paths, which would be necessary for example in the dispersive "fire" of a diamond or a chandelier.

Re: Wiki broken

Works for me, so not a german-only problem. And there was just another report of it on discord, so it didn't fix itself yet either.

Re: Bidir - Metropolis.

Basically, lets assume the whole scenario is built in marble. I have estimated the marble as the attached material. There is no attachment, did you forget it? Is my starting point (setting a glossy material for it) correct? Yes and no. Marble usually has subsurface scattering so you would rather ne...

Re: Bidir - Metropolis.

Hi, yes, in general a higher path depth is better, just your example of 800 is very excessive for almost all realistic scenarios. Let me give you some example numbers: First off, you can find an example of a situation requiring >100 describes in the follwing thread: https://forums.luxcorerender.org/...

Re: strange behaviour of homogeneous scattering volume

I don't believe that we have to use anisotrophy settings. The material is a molding compound, no directional dependency is expected if you do some real parts from it. If you want to model the ~20 degrees diffusion angles, then you do. With anisotropy = 0, scattering is equal in all directions and y...

Re: luxcore nishita sky texture?

Since this question keeps coming up (and will keep coming up), I just want to leave some more info here: Cycles seems to not use the old Nishita model directly, but an extended model based on it. I found a bit more detailed description here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gQta0ygFWXTrl5Pmvl_nZR...

And regarding the CC-BY-SA I was assuming that it was required to share it in the same way it was received, not just the license, so great :D
There is the ND (No Derivatives) building block that specifies that.

Re: LuxCore Online Library (LOL)

You can definitely share the work in general. It means "share alike", so it is meant to ensure that new content is published under the same or at least compatible terms. So if you just share e.g. a .blend-file with only LOL models and your own work, you share it under CC-BY-SA as well. You may get a...
