Can I use LuxCoreRender with C4D?

Post by Donleavy » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:54 pm

Hello

I have used LuxRender a lot (with Carrara, believe it or not).
Now, I have moved to Cinema 4D.

Is there any way to export from C4D to the new LuxCoreRender?

Br, Donleavy

Not directly (there isn't a plugin for C4D). You could go trough Blender (i.e. export from C4D, import inside blender, assign materials, etc. but it is going to be quite cumbersome).
Support LuxCoreRender project with salts and bounties

Ok - thank you for answering!
I sincerely hope that someone will create an export plugin for C4D!

It depends on someone stepping forward and developing the plugin. It might be a better idea to ask in a Cinema4D forum if a plugin developer is interested.

There are all sorts of Renderers available for C4D.
I think Octane is also available.
They have materials that are optimzied for the C4D architecture.
Exporting to Luxcore which is rather optimized for Blender sounds to me like a lot of work which can be avoided.
If you can pay the $1500 for C4D, maybe the price for Octane is still somewhere in the moneybag.
I like the way C4D works, but Blender is quickly getting forward since 2.80.
