trying to switch to Luxcore

Hi. I must say I did not dedicate much time yet. I got little bit frustrated by the amount of setting parameters that luxcore has. I am not the type of user that understands and enjoy the technicalities and being able to set every parameter. That is maybe why for the last years I have been using keyshot. But every time I see your tutorials on materials I get totally hocked. Is there any possibility you release a tutorial explaining a little bit more about the lighting settings of luxcore engine...It is a little bit overwhelming. I tried to follow the last archviz tutorial, but I felt it was skipping some explanations. If I can propose: It could be nice to have a tutorial on how to set up a scene...not only for archviz...but maybe also for product designers? I would like to start to render products and furniture with your engine. I am not saying you need to do it cause one person, but I am sure there is a big amount of people that might be also interested in switching to luxcore from my field :)

I really love what you do and the quality of your images, but I must say it feels a bit to complex. Maybe presets? like Product settings...Archviz....and so on... Anyway I will start again and seat to learn it. The porsche ....bought me.

When it comes to the materials it is super clear and I got convinced because of that mainly, the materials and clarity of the nodes is (from my point of view) much cleared than cycles.

Thank you!

The way to start with Luxcore

There are many good tutorials on YouTube menawhile.
Take a look.

Secondly I recommend to start with downloading and rendering these Luxcore Example Scenes.
The first one is the best. It contains a lot of Materials that you can use and there is already a perfectly lightened stage.

Third start making your own scenes by changing the example scenes and try different settings.
