Principled - Metal Roughness Material

Post by thomascheng » Tue Jan 09, 2018 7:42 pm

Hi,

I'm waiting for 2.79a to be released and have looked at the wiki page. I've been doing a lot of my texture work in Substance Painter and 3D Coat. They natively work with the PBR Principled Shader defined by Pixar Renderman. Given its popularity with many render engines, could we eventually see support for this in Luxcore? Thanks.

Yes but not hold your breath because, with some many topics on the table, it is likely to happen in v2.1, not the v2.0.

Some revelevant link for the topic:

I have a lot of models with PBR textures. If you could add Principled shader, I would gladly do a full testing of the shader with all my assets :)
