Re: Cycle X (and OpenCL)

I didn't understand the situation. Are we in a panic? No but there is quite big strategic decision ahead: what to do ? And how to get there ? My current feeling is to start to make (most of) CPU code compatible with CUDA C++: you can compile the code with a normal C++ compiler for CPUs or with CUDA...

How out of core work on your side when GPU memory isn't enough ? on my side each time GPU couldn't render even out of core crash with lot of memory left on DDR4.

Water is so cool that I want to dive into it and swim under water the entire pool
Thanks Dez ;) ! i found a way to animate water with kind of SDS caustics within Luxcore current limitation. And i hope the bug get fixed to launch animation final frames.

Re: Persistent Cache not loaded

I have been enable to reproduce the issue i think: just precompute your cache and save somewhere and disable overwrite after. then press CTR+F12 to launch animation (make sure to choose a folder for frames ). By looking at the settings, you have enabled periodic updates: you must disable it or the ...

Re: Persistent Cache not loaded

flickering due to the fact that cached files are sometime not loaded by Luxcore. What does it mean ? Do you get an error ? No error in the error log panel. But you can see that it lead to a strong unstable light intensity between frames in both video and images i have posted. I have been enable to ...

Re: Texture caching... amazing improvement in memory with Cycles, could be great in LuxCore!

This would be amazing, just with this the amount of memory taken by textures in general could be reduced A LOT and that would make 8Gb GPU's much more viable to render serious projects :) You may misunderstand the feature: it is only for CPU rendering . It is what Arnold does (actually .tx is an Ar...
