Sketchup2LuxCore

Post by nigec » Wed Apr 10, 2019 4:31 pm

I've been working on fixing the old SU2LX plugin for Luxrender and its now getting very close to be usable
su2lx.jpg
Left to do before release:
Fix the Fov; this is all over the place right now
Fix Volume; no idea what's wrong yet
Render engine type names and settings
Bundle with Luxcore; need the updated sdk

What I've done:
Fixed ply export
Overhaul the material preview
Remove displacement
Fix exporter to comply with Luxcore
Fixed various dialog related issues
Found/reported various bugs with lxs files

What's next:
Render view; currently WIP but waiting on a bug fix

Export cfg and scn files
Export changes only; this is my bug bare

Do you already have this online in a repository?
We can create one at https://github.com/LuxCoreRender

It would be good to have this online, it will make this project visible, others might get interested to help, you can link it in sketchup forums when asking for help etc.
Also, you don't have to fix every last thing before a first release. It looks like you already have something quite usable - I think it would be a good idea to make a first alpha release now. It would also spark interest among others if you make a post about it in the right place (e.g. a sketchup forum).

Thanks for your efforts - I look forward to see LuxCore renders done from Sketchup in our artwork forums :)

How should I call the repository? (side note: it's rather hard to change the name later)
If you give me your github username, I can also invite you and give you rights for the repo.

Username is the same as here: "nigec"
Name, "SU2LXC" was my first thought, short and simple but I guess "Sketchup2LuxCore" is more informative.
I dunno just pick one, I'm easy :)

I have created an empty repository at https://github.com/LuxCoreRender/SketchUp2LuxCore and invited you to the SketchUp plugin developer team.
