texture nodes for world hdri

Post by lacilaci » Thu May 16, 2019 11:15 am

In cycles I can use hsv controls to control colors of my hdri in blender, can't seem to find a way to do this in luxcore?
Is it not doable?

Currently, LuxCore light source settings are not node-based, they don't support arbitrary textures as input.
For example, in the infinite light properties, I can only specify the file to load and some additional properties: https://wiki.luxcorerender.org/LuxCore_ ... :_infinite
(the infinite light is exposed as "HDRI" mode in the Blender world settings)

However they are standard image maps with all connected pre-processing features available (like channel selection, gamma correction, color average, etc.).
Adding HSV pre-processing and exposing the feature would be quite easy.

I think it would be better to implement a node system for lights. HSV corrections is just one of many things people might apply to a light's color.
Of course it's also more work.

Or did you mean, add HSV to the pre-processing steps of imagemaps?

It would be great if procedural nodes for clouds or stars could be added to the sunsky or general background like it is possible in Cycles.

Evaluating textures inside light sources may be quite deadly for OpenCL (as usual the problems are there). It is trivial to do on CPUs, not really on GPUs.

Actually, HSV controls might be enough for hdri. Some hdri's have a bit crazy and oversaturated colors so this might provide quick way of handling this.

also maybe a mirror option as an addition to already present rotation controls... I think that's about it. more detailed tweaks might be better done in other software.

This is already possible if you use a hemi lamp instead of the world settings.
You can set the hemi lamp scale to -1 to mirror the image on that axis.
