MayaToLux - Autodesk Maya plugin for LuxCoreRender

Post by TAO » Sun Feb 21, 2021 6:43 pm

First, I need to explain that I do not have enough time to work and maintain the Maya plugin regularly but as i can see there is no good point to start i decide to give it a shot and start the plugin so we have a good point to start with at least for the other developer to flow and complete the code.
I believe the hardest part of such a project is where and how to start.
I'm not promise anything yet but I will try my best to provide the basic functionality. at the moment I'm experimenting with the development and it is too early yet to have a working plugin.
At the first step I will bring back the LuxCoreRenderer exporter from dead so it will be possible to use it with the stand-alone version of LuxCore and in the next phase, I will recreate the internal plugin to render directly inside Autodesk Maya.
For now, I will just support the 2 latest versions of Maya to make it simple.
I'll be grateful for any kind of help.
Dade, please add MayaToLux so I can have a place to work on it.

The fact that you're opening the road for futur Devs is a miracle by itself. You're awesome ;)

That's very kind of you. it is just the start of the path.
Of course, after finishing the exporter to LuxCoreRender I'll start to create an internal Maya renderer.
