Re: Splashing Einstein

Blend file can now be found here: https://owncloud.gwdg.de/index.php/s/TTedAeIJtYKWuQk And a new render with cahnged setup and some improved settings. More cache :D and more path depth, as default was too low to get all multiple-refractions through water (you can see dark areas in the first image). ...

For correct rendering of the caustics, you will have to use Bidir + Metropolis.
In this case, I believe you need PGI cache, as the caustics viewed from outside the water will be SDS paths. BiDir would help if the camera is inside the water.

Re: Tiled OIDN Denoising

Correction: You can't do this, because denoise.exe uses the same shared library (libOpenImageDenoise) as LuxCore. And if you would replace libOpenImageDenoise, this would create conflicts with final render denoising in LuxCore. You will have to leave everything as it is and wait for us to update to...

Re: E-Cycles addon for Blender

I'm a bit puzzled by this E-Cycles thing: I'm not sure to fully understand what is going on. I mean, Cycles is APL like LuxCore so the license offers a lot of freedom. However Blender is GPL and that is big NONONO for this kind of stuff, I'm a bit surprised Blender Foundation didn't used a big lega...

Re: Convert World Sky Texture and Sun to Cycles

I like the Lux result a bit better pro-lux: - the stacks of plates have stronger shadows in between (not necessarily more correct, but looks nicer), and it looks a bit overexposed on the top, which I would expect from a photo in this situation. The cycles plates are very "milky", like when you reduc...

Trying to combine and play with some features... The model of Einstein's head is taken from http://threedscans.com/ . Other features include blenders fluid, the water was splashed at high velocity against the head, a large relative Sun size for the artistic effect (was mentioned recently in another ...

Re: Tiled OIDN Denoising

A new OIDN release is out, one of the features is reduced memory consumption: https://github.com/OpenImageDenoise/oidn/releases/tag/v0.9.0 Very nice in addition to the tiled OIDN :) hehe great :) I always "feared" that they would have come up with the same solution as I'm working on by the time I'm...

Re: Tiled OIDN Denoising

The code is now on the main branch. CodeHD, can I ask you to modify the nTiles/pixelThreshold mechanic ? My idea is to have a fixed and user specified tile size instead of a variable tile size based on image dimension. This is has the advantage of requiring a fixed (and user specified) amount of ra...

Nice, thank you for the link :) I can try to use them, they looked very good in your scene. @ CodeHD This caustics totally look like...

Re: Swimming pool / Underwater / Caustics

I still have to play around with BiDirVM, but I did play around a bit more with waves, this time using a plane with "dynamic paint" instead of fluid. I osciallted a ball (with Null material for the rendering) inside it to create waves. I also made a version with two balls to get interference, which ...
