Re: (Open)Subdiv and Displacement shapes

Nice. By the way, what happens to the intermediate shapes after the session is started? When doing subdivision + displacement, we have: - original mesh (no longer needed if not instanced) - subdivided mesh (no longer needed) - displaced mesh (needed during render) Maybe more, due to e.g. pointiness....

Hopefully this also means the region/border rendering will work much better too
It is not related. It has a different explanation and an easy workaround.
Yes, it is on me (or anyone else who could work on the Blender addon) to fix this in the addon by using LuxCore's subregion.

Can I ask questions about it here?
Better open a github issue in that repo.

I was thinking to include hybrid rendering but how to you weights the GPU+CPU performance ?
Hm, true, it's not really suited for a benchmark.

Re: LuxMark v4.0alpha0

I'll look into it when I have time.

By the way, I also have a version of the wallpaper scene that uses Path OpenCL + light tracing, so it wouldn't have to be a CPU-only benchmark.

Re: (Open)Subdiv and Displacement shapes

:D But can we use procedural textures also for displacement? Yes. Note: In LuxCore, displacement is a geometry transformation while (I think) it is a material attribute in Cycles. However LuxCore use one single material with each mesh so it is really only a formal difference. I think in BlendLuxCore...

BTW, anyone has the the latest version of the LuxBall scene ? It should be included in the collection too.
I have it, I can add it later.

Re: Procedural materials

Can I include this in our collection of example scenes?
