LuxCoreRender daily/automatic builds

Post by Dade » Fri Nov 16, 2018 11:43 am

Binary builds from very latest, under development, sources are available here: The updated binaries are usually ready after a couple of hours from a GitHub commit.

Note: it will be a very experimental version (and some of it will even be intentionally broken).

for noobs(like me)

First download latest blender addon to make sure you have latest fixes and features exposed, here:
https://github.com/LuxCoreRender/BlendL ... master.zip

then donwload daily build depending on your OS and if you want opencl enabled version here:
https://github.com/LuxCoreRender/LuxCor ... tag/latest

install addon first

then copy daily build files over to addon -> "BLENDLUXCORE/BIN" (depending on OS your blender addons might be installed in different places)

You should now have latest addon and luxcore daily build.

Is it possible to separate the stable version from the daily version in the render selection menu? So that every time you do not have to reinstall the version I need, but have both?

You can rename the BlendLuxCore folder.
Then the stable and daily versions will both appear in your addons list when you search for luxcore.
You can find out which is which if you expand them and look at the file path (see screenshot).
If you want to switch between them, you'll have to disable the active one, enable the other one, save user prefs and restart Blender.

It is not possible to have both enabled because Blender doesn't separate addons into different namespaces, so everything will collide.

Manually rename the name of the render in the list of renders by editing the file inside the addon? After all, I can even the GreatDeveloperSorda write in the name of the render.

You can do that, but you can't have both addons enabled at the same time without renaming a lot of classes and variables.
