Re: Light Intensities and Units

Awesome, Photographer looks pretty handy. I like using real values for things where possible, thanks for supporting LuxCore. Specifically I have a recently been rendering images for HMI's, (Industrial controls/icons are often so dated) and rendering realistic systems based on the CAD files looks so ...

Re: Computer for Luxcorerender

I'm happy to give some advice, here are a few questions that will help: - What kind of budget are you looking at?

My 4790k/GTX 970 system is getting old, would love to go all AMD, I don't even game these days so rendering is all that matters, and ...

I downloaded latest build of luxcore for blender and still no disney shader WTF!
Hold up, it has to be added to BlendLuxCore as well, it's literally only hours since it's been completed in LuxCore.

Simon will add it soon when he has the time, no need to be rude :)

Re: A bounty for Blender v2.8 support

Does Paypal require an account for this as well? Sometimes you can 'guest' checkout on Paypal using a credit card without signing in.

Edit: No, it requires a full account for this. :oops:
