BIDIRVMCPU

Post by jgrover110 » Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:54 pm

Is there anything planned for the BIDIRVMCPU renderer, such as use with Blendluxcore or improvements to the engine, or will it stay as is?

There is a problem in using vertex merging and Metropolis sampler at the same time. The problem is between the multi-pass nature of VM and Metropolis. I would say the answer is no, nothing is planned until the problem is solved.

As far I remember BIDIRVCPUVM is not exposed by BlendLuxCore or cited in any documentation :?:

There is very little info about the engine at all. Could you tell me what units the start radius scale are in (bidirvm.startradius.scale)? Would it be possible for it to be in screen space pixels?
