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

Here's CPU for the win & it makes more sense considering hybrid approach. Anyways, why I still prefer CPU engines is because I find those more stable, predictive, maneuverable, easier to handle, faster & effortless to deliver bigger projects... = more dough, better ROI Also, after baking gets to Ble...

Indeed... it was "Smart IBL" in the old days

Maybe with OCL frozen this might become feesable

Re: Printing colour transparency coming out grey
