I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

How is Luxus, too.. does my stuff play nicely in it?

I’m having trouble with the A.M.S. RT-05. The attachement below shows a spot render in Lux…as you can see, the textures aren’t coming through. SphericLabs seems to think this is because the mech uses a custom shader that Luxus’ auto translate isn’t able to figure out.

As this is my first post here, in order to stick with the spirit of the thread I would like to say that this is a really great model…really hoping I can figure out how to make in work in Lux, I’ve got an idea for a really cool scene I’d like to do!

If you look through the mech’s material settings. is it obvious which one is the diffuse texture map?  If it is, then I would try setting up a matte material and setting the diffuse channel to that texture noted before.

The other option is to select all the material for the mech and apply a LuxRender metal2 material.  I would do the silver.

The A.M.S. RT-05 has a straight forward texture setup. nothing complex,  just a diffuse, bump and a trans map for the glass.  Below is a quick test render in LUX after one minute or so.  Jack’s model and textures came through fine.

Thanks for that FB.. I was going to say, there shouldn’t be anything fancy about it.  I guess the question is now, how you managed to get it to work in Luxus and clarke can’t.

Any pointers you can give him? I haven’t used Luxus yet, so I’m not much help wink

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I’d have to say Jeff Bridges is my favourite.. wink

There is one in the can actually, and a couple kicking about the place.. along with loads of other stuff. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about it - nor GIS, West Park.. etc etc etc wink

I’ve probably said many a time by now, but I have to keep going around the various genres to try and keep everyone happy.. all I can ask is that you’re patient, your particular genre of choice will be catered for ASAP.

:D

Heh, thanks - welcome to the JAS!

Just FYI - this thread doesn’t exist solely to stroke my ego - I’m all for constructive criticism/feedback.. so if you have any ideas or thoughts on stuff here is also the place to do it, along with posting renders, talking daft and posting the odd Monty Python reference.

If anyone wants to vent however, please do so by PM only wink

Patience ... oh well, he is asking for patience ...
Is there a bridge over to the land of patience?
