How to render a cycles scene in LuxCore?

Post by DorPrz » Sun Sep 16, 2018 1:18 pm

Hi all,
Basically the same question as: https://blender.stackexchange.com/quest ... -luxrender
Just with the newer version.
The "Convert Cycles Scene" button is gone forever? is there any other option?

I would not say "forever", but yes, it is not yet implemented in the new addon.
My plan was to wait for the disney principled shader to be implemented in LuxCore before starting the converter project (to have some more common ground between Cycles and LuxCore materials).

Unfortunately, manual conversion of material and light settings is necessary right now.
I once wrote a small addon that can convert only Cycles image nodes to LuxCore image nodes: https://gist.github.com/Theverat/f2687c ... b93a1e6309
But you will still have to rewire them yourself.
