The Luxcore beta for Blender 2.8 seems to work fine in the latest 2.81 beta.
My first test results look great. I love the realism. I used Luxrender for a while, years ago, but Luxcore looks and feels much better. Great work.
A few newbie questions:
Why is the rendering engine drop-down menu greyed out when you've switched to OpenCL?
If only one engine works, which of the two works with OpenCL?
A lot of material nodes don't work with the Bidirectional engine. Is this because of the beta stage?
I noticed that Blender's Auto Smooth does not seem to work, resulting in artifacts in Booleaned meshes. But maybe that's just a Lux setting somewhere?
I also noticed that switching from OpenCL to CPU results in a slightly darker rendering. What could be the cause of that? No other settings were changed.
Is there an option to override the world background? So reflections, lighting and refractions remain, but you see a different background.
