Re: Windows Build FAILED

@Acasta69, I'm starting to think that compilation problem on Azure is due to the use of a Linux OpenCL SDK on Windows. The error seems to suggest that and the compilation on Windows works fine here. You should check the OpenCL headers, the definition of "cl_ulong" type should be like: typedef unsig...

Re: Windows Build FAILED

So where are caches stored, so I can clear/ delete all & make proper comparison? For LuxCore 2.3 it should be: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\kernel_cache For v2.4 there are two locations: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\cuda_kernel_cache C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\ocl_ke...

Not for the moment, for the first test, use OpenCL and CUDA enabled.
Everything's ok with this.

Re: Unified executable (for CPU-only, OpenCL and CUDA)

- you can compile the LuxCore sources without having to use OpenCL or CUDA SDK; Do you mean this should work even if compiled with OpenCL "disabled"? There is a problem, though: https://dev.azure.com/LuxCoreRender/LuxCoreRender/_build/results?buildId=2196&view=results These errors happen with no-oc...

Re: LuxCore API and Unicode UTF-8 support

At the moment, I have done some test only on Linux and it seems to works fine with not-latin languages. I assume MacOS will work too. We need to check Windows. I tried some very simple test on Windows using a filename with non-latin characters: LuxCoreUI opens and renders correctly a file called 'ש...

Re: What is differance?

The difference is that with the first two builds you can choose GPU-based render engines (e.g. PathOCL), having much better performance in many cases. The first build has Cuda enabled: you can use it if you have a suitable Nvidia GPU. Many users reported better performance using the Cuda build with ...

Re: v2.3 Vs v2.4 performance

I find the same very strange behaviour with TAO's scene, i.e. GPU is very slow, with LuxCoreUI 2.2 (but 2.4 is ok).
This line in the config file seems to be the source of the problem, at least on my laptop:

Code: Select all

opencl.gpu.workgroup.size = "0"
If I comment it, then GPU speed is again very high.
