Hi everyone, I'm trying to pick up from where I left off the LuxMax plugin and as I'm a bit busy I'll appreciate any kind of help.
I will upload the new code and new screenshots as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help.

I manage to upgrade the project to work with new 3dsmax and visual studio, but all parameters change and most of the project is not usable.
Lights, camera, all shaders none of them work and it's crash most of the time, but the good news is i can compile the project and I'll fix issues in the near future.

just one material appear and not even work


good news is renderer compiled and load in 3dsmax and mesh converter seems to work correctly (I hope).

At least you already got a rendered image :)
Just do one step at a time, don't try to fix everything at once.

Basic render engine works now, Material editor preview fixed, most shaders work now and some of them still need more work.
I can see some triangles especially on edge of shadows and i think mesh converter function needs to be fixed too.

Don't bother with that for now, looks like the terminator problem. You can only mitigate it by using a larger light source or subdividing the mesh further.

But I wonder, how would you go about framebuffer and tonemapping? In blender we can use linear output from luxcore and blender's own filmic tonemapping...
