Re: blender 3.0 and USD

Will see, Tangent was doing that development, together with Nvidia, and it was in good shape, so it may reach Blender rather sooner than later, also it's something being spoken actively :) Awesome, that means that if Blender properly supports Hydra LuxCore may be used following that route? That may ...

Re: Two well known luxcore problems.

First things first, If in Cycles Multiscatter GGX leads to Blackness with 1.0 IOR then it should be reported as a BUG AFAIK, so if you can please do it :) Second, I think elevating the current Disney material implementation to the 2015 version could be a first great step, this would ease the interpr...

Re: blender 3.0 and USD

Dade I think this is a more complex topic. When USD is mentioned I think it's more related to the simplicity of working with USD and a Hydra delegate. Could be a good idea to think in turning LuxCore into a Hydra delegate, this would remove all the limitations currently present regarding Scene sync,...

Re: Giga Benchmark battle : Luxcore Redshift CyclesX ECycles Vray Corona

First we should determine the pros/cons of these settings and if the difference is noticeable and what are their effects.

Cluttering the addon for no reason don’t make sense and it would be more work for BYOB for nothing :)

However I agree that investigating this it’s worth the effort :)

Re: Giga Benchmark battle : Luxcore Redshift CyclesX ECycles Vray Corona

Yes, my suggestion was along those lines, assuming that may be a difference in speed and quality, but for some situations maybe speed is required more than quality, so good question.

And the point made by BYOB is good too, better AOV's will produce better denoise.

Re: Giga Benchmark battle : Luxcore Redshift CyclesX ECycles Vray Corona

I’m not saying that any new feature has to be created to “break” the render to gain speed, what I meant is if RR could be configured to deliver a worse result but way faster, so I mean leveraging what’s already present and maintaining the concept of LuxCore :) However if some concepts are revisited ...

Re: Giga Benchmark battle : Luxcore Redshift CyclesX ECycles Vray Corona

Mmm this opens an interesting conversation. There are situations where some settings may be preferred, although with a more biased / worse result, but faster, could be interesting to have a "draft" configuration, or some of these settings exposed as advanced. The idea of the RR settings, Dade you sa...

Re: Giga Benchmark battle : Luxcore Redshift CyclesX ECycles Vray Corona

There are many details, E-Cycle vs Cycles is clear that loose a lot of quality, that's what E-Cycles is basically based on. Now regarding Lux for example you can see how there is a lot more light being computed, its a brighter image. I've been talking with BlenderBrit about this and how there are fu...

Re: Giga Benchmark battle : Luxcore Redshift CyclesX ECycles Vray Corona

BlenderBrit sorry but you usage of LuxCore is basically wrong. You leave light tracing on, which will slow the render a lot, but you disable it on Corona, you don't use PGI, when it's a basic feature that you MUST use for any kind of interior, but you use it on Corona. [CORRECTION] Even when in the ...
