Re: PhotonGI cache

Let's recap: KintuX (here) , Luxart (here) and I have tried PGI animation and experienced flickering. Did few more testing and my observed points: 1, Increasing Brute force radius scale: parameter reduces 75 % of flickering. 2, Manually setting both the Lookup radius and Brute force radius scale pa...

Re: PhotonGI cache

In general animation (edit all objects) flickering problem occurs. Have you done some test ? It would be interesting to see the results. I mean, it would be an expected problem but it is hard to see any difference between "brute force path tracing" alone and brute "force path tracing+PGI" rendering...

Re: PhotonGI cache

In animations Photon GI causes flickering. How to avoid it or Is Photon GI useful only for still images :?: Hi Luxart, first the persistent cache must be integrated into Blender. It's not yet ready, see comment above by B.Y.O.B. I think Persistent Photon GI cache is for fly through animations(only c...

Re: Luxcore build error

Fix the real problem, don't do additional work to just work around. There must be a reason why for you (and only for you) cmake does't detect VisualC++: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51668676/cmake-visual-studio-15-2017-could-not-find-any-instance-of-visual-studio I agree, and the most likely...

Re: Luxcore build error

Windows Desktop application in Visual C++ is installed.

But from version 2.1 the OpenCL code are moved to .cl files. The .cl f...

Are you saying that luxcore memory consumption will grow with the number of cores for cpus increasing??? :D
Yes, not with 8 cores. But 32 & 64 cores etc, along with film size and denoiser, it is definitely going to be a memory problem ;)

Re: Luxcore and memory

LuxCore uses all cores at 100%. So I guess part of the RAM usage is duplicating the film across threads for better performance? Yes, Currently for each cpu thread seperate film is allocated. So as the film size or thread count (current and futrue AMD CPU's have 32 & 64 threads) increases, the memor...
