Open sourced: Reality plugin for Luxrender in Daz Studio and Poser

Post by 3Drendero » Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:47 pm

Important news from the Reality site:

http://preta3d.com/reality-now-open-source-software/

https://bitbucket.org/realityplugin/rea ... c/default/

"...I decided to release Reality as an Open Source Software (OSS) covered by the very permissible BSD License.

I hope that this will inspire other developers to pick up the project and update it.

The good news is that Reality is designed to work with multiple hosts and multiple renderers. The system itself is not tied to LuxRender. You want to make Reality run as a plugin for Blender or Modo? That requires just a bit of Python code on the host app. You want to take the Eevee code from Blender and connect it to Reality? It can be done.

The source code is in a repository on BitBucket. I will provide the necessary information to replicate the compilation of the project and on how to start making the first modifications to any developer who is willing to pick up the baton..."

It is an interesting news, I don't have the time to look into the problem but I assume that the current LuxRender exporter code can be translated in a LuxCoreRender exporter in something like 1 week of work. If someone pickup the task, I will be more than happy to support him/her.

I moved the topic into the News section so it is more visible and, may be, someone will pick up the task.

Here is the forum thread where Paolo seems to be active and responding to questions:

An update:

I just added a few instructions in the Reality repository on how to compile it. I also added two large zipfiles with the Qt libraries that are necessary to compile Reality on Windows and Mac OS. This repository is called reality-libs.

The whole project is here:
