McLaren MP4/5b

Post by Volo » Sun Dec 30, 2018 3:57 pm

Hello,

yesterday I just found this awesome render engine and liked LuxCore instantly :)
Here is one of my first renders.
McLaren MP4/5b F1 car from 1990 diven by Ayrton Senna.

Hope there will be a denoiser and support for auto smooth soon.

Both features are available in the latest beta versions of the upcoming version 2.1 - see the news section for download links.

Great rendering, I have still dreams of a Senna's Montecarlo pole position :D

Nice render. This F1 is just so beautifull. I really like the 90's F1 design

Thank you Sharlybg and Dade :)
Here is a new render.

@B.Y.O.B. This time I used v2.1, but Autosmooth is still not working :( So I added extra loops to the mesh.
Furthermore Denoiser works great on bright areas, but on dark areas it's just blurry, see second attachment especially on Tyrewalls. I used 1000 samples.
And one last thing, I don't know maybe it' NVIDIAs fault, first time i tried OpenCL, everything was fast and right, then I tweaked my glass shader a bit and after that I got wrong and glossy results every time... I tried to clead AppData cache, reboot my PC and the Issue is the same... See third attachment.

But all in all I love this engine! :)

Can you post a test scene that shows the problem?
Maybe we misunderstand each other? I'm talking about the setting in the mesh properties:

This mesh contains custom split normals data, this is indeed not yet supported by the BlendLuxCore addon.
You can disable auto smooth and add an edge split modifier instead as a workaround.

Or a few extra loop as I already did.
Anyway thanks for checking and a happy new year! :)
