OK, so I have just decided to jump on the band wagon raspberry

I have literally just booted up C8.5 (172) and threw in a genesis figure, added an aniblock and started playing..

Just gonna read the documentation now (render seems to be grey scale only!, sure that after reading the documentation all will be fine)..
Are we restricted to stills or can we do PNG sequences with this Alpha?

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your efforts so far and encourage you to keep it up smile

THANK YOU v-much wink

There is no documentation, this is an alpha release, meaning that most functions are still missing.
You can try to setup the textures only, since the only material available is color and texture maps:

“4) 2 new shaders. Lux Surface should be the top most shader, Lux Matte must be in the first slot of Lux Surface
5) Only the diffuse channel of Lux Matte will work. You can set a color or a texture there.”

RE:

I was referring to the LuxRender documentation as I have never used LuxRender before. I just brought Luxus for DS and decided to give this Alpha a try while I was at it, but usually I use Octane Render Plugins (For Poser, Blender & DS) or standalone for Carrara stauff, so thought it might give me a point to start from & help me understand the Carrara plugin and Luxus/LuxRender wink

Thanks for the reply and info smile

Also, the new Beta release as well as the topic has been moved to the new forum - just in case you missed it. There’s a second page on at original discussion that links to this new one.

Got the “Hybrid” renderer of Luxrender to work as well, GPU assisted rendering for Carrara is here!
The option of “slg” is not working, since the current Luxrender 1.21 does not support full GPU rendering via slg, think that it is scheduled for 1.3 though.

Amazing integration of all Luxrender materials/lights/renderers in Carrara, outstanding work by SphericLabs.
Stable too, no crashes after a few hours of working.

Sweet. So, what do you mean by you got the hybrid to work? Care to elaborate on that?

@3drendero:

from the Luxrender site:

“SLG renderer
The SLG renderer branch has just been merged with mainline. This means from now on LuxRender has a full GPU accelerated render mode, it will be available in new development builds and in the forthcoming v1.3.”

http://www.luxrender.net/en_GB/index


I have a little issue:
When I load a scene from the indoor presets and then I render, hangs both Carrara and Luxus. Other scene presets will work. Can test other this?
