Headless LuxCore Renderbox

Post by BiOzZ » Wed Nov 14, 2018 10:32 pm

We have recently set up a headless (no monitor or X server) linux render box and i'm wondering how via the command line i can actually render an image like with luxrender. I have pyluxcoretools set up but it wants to launch the xserver and the pyluxcoreconsole is not yet documented on the wiki and i cant find any way to call it directly. am i missing something or would i have to code my own tool?

On Linux, you have to run something like:

python3 pyluxcoretools.zip console scenes/cornell/cornell.cfg
To get the list of supported commands:
