Luxcore 2.5 (settings for my laptop)

Post by zooropa » Sun Sep 06, 2020 11:43 am

Hi. I downloaded the 2.5 version of luxcore. I am not sure why but it goes a bit slow when I try to expand viewports or move the division between them.

I did change the engine to GPU and choose Open CL instead of CUDa. I am running a laptop with an RTX 2080 Q max .

Should I run the engine in CPU (like the tutorials I found in internet) or GPU ?

Thank you

As it is discussed here viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2546 GPu viewport performance can be improved. there some workarround like switch to CPU instead or use half resolution on viewport currently befre a more bullet proof solution is found.

BTW you should stay on 2.4 for production and deadline project.

Thank you, I am using 2.5 cause I thought I could make better use of my RTX card. I also noticed the denoiser works similar to cycles, something I am looking for. I am not getting used to to the denoise in 2.4 that blures everything after 10 seconds. I like the progressive method of the optix someone showed in the luxcore 2.5 demo. I do not know why, but I can not make the option active...

Workarround. Install opera browser and use the integrated vpn feature.
