playing with caustics

Post by epilectrolytics »

Finally it's possible to render HD animations with realistic caustics on my old MacBook, yay!
Thanks to the dev team making this possible!

I like!
I support the idea of making video projects in Lux. Now can!

I like that one. Especially the dispersive scattering traces.

What is native resolution and render time?

That was rendered @2048x1280 in 2h (sorry, don't remember sample count), then PS denoised and saturation enhanced.

Like the vid, but would like to see it rendered with the camera settings option in the tonemapping section so that Lux isn't trying to change the exposure on you.

Thanks ajm for the hint, that was my very first LuxCore animation and I really made that stupid noob mistake to render with automatic tonemapping :oops:

Now I have rerendered it and replaced the file with the original link intact, looks way better !

Needs more samples but that has to wait till I got a faster PC.
