Also it looks like its using Linear tonemapping, try auto

IIRC this plugin uses the LuxCore API directly, not through the LXS parser. I could be wrong though. By the way, TAO, can you upload your current progress into the repo at https://github.com/LuxCoreRender/MaxLuxCore?

it doesn't matter how much i try with last code, lights and meshes not going to work correctly except on special circumstances. Especially on the direct light area and segments on the edge of shadows.
It looks to me like the emitted power is simply too much. You could try to use a lower gain setting as a start.

segments on the edge of shadows.
Sounds like the terminator issue, probably amplified by the high brightness. It's not something that can be solved, but it should vanish once you fix the brightness issue.

Issues solved, everything look's nice now.

All lights work perfectly
Gain/Power/Efficiency of light work nicely
Shadow on edge is clear now
No more burning on the direct light area
Lux Camera object almost finished
Lux Pano Camera object almost finished



As most part of the code is hard-code before uploading the code, i need to do some change and maybe add 2d/3d textures, Tonemap controller.
So we have working renderer, It will not take much time. ;)

here are a few renders.

A 3ds Max forum may be even more appropriate (after all, BlenderArtist is a Blender focused forum).

Something wrong with UV, all textures shows as color on any surface, it's like textures stretched or something like that.
The colorful texture appears as purple color and black and with one as gray.

If you use the FILESAVER render engine to save the scene on files and post the files here, I can tell you what is going wrong.
