Blender 4 compatibility

Post by CG Thoughts »

Hello everyone,
I'm working on BlendLuxcore compatibility with Blender 4. I already made changes related to new Blender API. Addon installation ok. Viewport ok. But final render crash. I need help to understand how you made the project and know if I can something.
I've added images to help you understand where I'm at with my research.
I began my work from master branch of the github.
Thank you
