A reboot of the thread “Porting Pose2lux using PyCarrara to get Luxrender into Carrara?”
http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/9737/

Since Python in Carrara only offers basic functionality, it looks like a C++ exporter for LuxRender is a better start for a Carrara port.
Of all the exporters at http://src.luxrender.net/ only LuXSI supports C++ and is kept up-to-date.

LuXSI 1.1 release is here: http://www.luxrender.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=9167
Source: http://src.luxrender.net/luxsi/file/9d37156d1893

LuxRender 1.1: http://www.luxrender.net/en_GB/download

Free Softimage Mod Tool 7.5 32bit here (Free for non commercial game modding, 400MB):

Carrara 8.1.1.12 SDK is here:

Source code of other Carrara plug-ins for educational purposes:

The free Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows desktop now includes
built-in support for 64bit applications, more info and download here

Got everything downloaded now, time to install and setup the sources.

Bad news, one last try to get Reality to Carrara failed, though it was a long shot:
http://preta3d.com/forum/general-discussion/using-kickstarter-to-fund-a-reality-plugin-for-carrara/

Good news, got the compiler to run LuXSI and some of the Carrara samples in 64bit.

It takes Paolo 12 months full time to do Reality for Poser, LuXSI is 5 years in the making, huge projects, anybody interested to help out?
