Me too.
So 3dage… I really like your image. Thanks for sharing. Those glass pitchers look fantastic! But actually everything does. Very good idea of a test for this. Bravo!

Hi Gaffer smile

I’m using build 1.2

SphericLabs smile

Thanks for that,. however,. I get the same message when trying to access that file,.. that I get on the Carrara cafe site,. (I’m hoping you’re both on the same hosting provider) ......and I get an invalid zip file when (right click menu) selecting “Save target”.

but thanks anyway smile


Dartanbeck smile

Thanks ,.. i made the glass “things” with a twist in the body which should show the distortion of the light through the glass (IOR)
the Stair’s have a little lip at the front edge, which should create shadowing
the walls and floor, are standard primitive Planes with texture maps, and the metal balls are just a primitive Sphere.

I’ll upload the scene file here later.

3Dtoday smile

thanks ,. I like them to. ...there’s a nice soft fall off to the shadow edge which looks quite natural to me.

Weird, I just tested downloading the link and extracting it to carrara extension.  Works.  does the link work for anyone?

Well it really looks good. The lip on the stairs looks great where you see it, like the top two courses. I bet they’d shadow beautifully were the light off to the left of the scene a bit further. And… those “things” you made, as most of the rest of us from Wisconsin will tell you, are for drinking beer. What else would you do with them? lol

Hi all smile

here’s the little test scene. (36 kb)

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7907045/Lux_test_scene.car 

no textures included since we should probably be using the new lux shaders. smile

Almost all of the Lux Shaders allow you to switch the colors to texture maps if you want.

I can confirm that the small scene by 3DAGE does not work with the 3rd release of Luxus (dated 16/4).
Guess it was built with version 2 and the huge shader upgrades of v3 are the reason for the loss of shader information.
For example the red sphere were black and the glass details were lost.

Sorry, I should have messaged that files saved with the prior versions would not likely load in later version, but the next version will be save/load stable going forward.
