Have you seen this Normal map generator from B.Y.O.B?

https://github.com/Theverat/NormalmapGenerator
Ahhhh! How can I miss this one? I'll try it out ASAP. Can I ask questions about it here? It looks like not directly related to LuxCore?

This ray files describe very well the light behaviour in near field luminance as well as far field intensity. They can also be generated individually to integrate more complex lighting scenarios with little calculation effort.
That looks very nice! How does it compare to IES files?

Re: (Open)Subdiv and Displacement shapes

That's fantastic!!! From https://3dtextures.me/2019/09/30/fabric-padded-004: I'm very much interested in this one. We have a large number of diffuse textures like this. We tried to use photoshop to manually make bump maps from the diffuse textures, but that's too slow. Later we tried to use VRay's V...

It is already happening with this feature: it is limited to Path and ignored by BiDir.
That's really nice. Thanks!

Re: Shadow rays transparency for path tracers (aka hybrid glass)

Just yesterday I had some werid crazy request on removing some shadows and reflections, it's a lot of work "photoshopping" it out but in cycles(also corona vray etc..) I just enable/disable some object flags or rayswitch to modify those features and I'm done... I know the community around luxcore s...

Re: LuxCore v2.3 proposed features

There's Vulkan. And the "hybrid" thingie is crazy fast in RPR. No RTX needed. Like EEVEE with tracing ON :lol: seriously, no joke. They even stand ready for USD :geek:. Octane also going for it. I'm also inclined to Vulkan (partially because I'm developing real-time 3D applcations), but as far as I...

Re: LuxCore v2.3 proposed features

How is it exposed then? OpenGL? All modern graphics API supports it: OpenGL, DX, Vulkan, Metal and even WebGL. But the really annoying things that the supported formats for Desktop and mobile are almost mutually exclusive. For example, BC7 is a great format for PC, but mobiles don't support it; AST...

The list goes on, it's just much greater flexibility.
Wow! Then that's definitely in my wishlist as well! Thank you!

Re: LuxCore v2.3 proposed features

Basically for example you could have two materials, where one would be visible for every ray type except reflection, and another one would be visible in reflections (or you would use null material in reflection and have a Vampire :D) Ok, I understand you (theoretically), but since I'm only doing re...
