Thank you so much for LuxCore for Blender 2.8x!
I tested it today with this scene (Metropolis+OpenCl+PhotonGI+Environment Cache). Viewport renders smooth. I did the final render with a halt after 15 minutes on a 2080ti and i think the result after that short time is pretty good, for denoising does not help here with a lot of mostly uniform-colored structural textures. The only thing that did not work for me in this scene was HDRI lighting. Everything else worked for me and i did not run in to a single crash.
Cheers,

Johannes

Nice result ;)

Just wonder how fast sobol will be as it is better to use it on GPU than metropolis. Don't know but i think the render time can be lowered down considering you run it on a mighty RTX 2080 TI.

This card is like 2XRX Vega 56. With PGI+ENVcache it should be even faster.

Looks great. I particularly like the carpet!

Is it possible 2.8 with No Opencl version?
You can install Intel OpenCL CPU driver so you will be able to use the OpenCL version even without a GPU.
My Cpu is Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.6Ghz. Is it possible to use OpenCL with that CPU?
Allah bless us!

May be, I don't know the exact requirements of Intel OpenCL.

If he doesn't use any OpenCL engine and disable it in the imagepipeline, he should be able to use the OpenCL version, no?

I have to say I like how the render settings are shaping up. Luxcore feels easier to use just by using few dropdown menus instead of 100 buttons.

I'm afraid you get an error for the missing OpenCL-related DLLs as soon as you start the executable.

hi all,

I'm testing the 280 build, and I see that viewport render does not update material emission changes.

Also, autosmooth values are ignored.

But great work!
