Haha… well, it depends on the complexity of the scene. Obviously, more geometry means more things for light to bounce off from and to, so more work for Lux. For this reason, things like skydomes are big no-no’s in Reality. Since Lux is calculating realistic light rays, it has to project that beam all the way to the outer dome and back again which can really drag out render times. I learned that the hardway and sat patiently for 6 hours waiting for something resembling actual detail to appear on my render.

As you can imagine, it wasn’t a great way to be introduced to my newly purchased software.

Ah,

So, if I wanted to do a render in Lux like the last one I posted I’d have to remove the environment sphere?

CHEERS!

You can use IBL’s. Reality handily came with several light presets, one of which includes a “daylight” preset which I used in the picture just now. It’s effectively a special IBL with its own environment map, giving you a nice sky where you would otherwise get transparency. No doubt the Poser release will also come with some good presets you can make use of and edit to bring out the best features of your images.

This image was done using JUST a single daylight and no backgrounds or skydomes. Render time is only about 10 minutes though, so quality suffers.

This is an old lux render i did when i was still using ds3 and reality 1.2

took about 5-6 hours if I recall to get to this stage - no postwork done on this except for signature borders

I used the in lux effect of bloom to get the hot planet sorta effect

Pretty cool,

Could maybe have done with a bit more of a bake. That’s the only thing that is worrying me, how long it’ll take before I like what I see. My laptop runs hot even doing Poser renders…...

CHEERS!

That was the one thing i actually liked about luxrender. it ran pretty cool on my laptop. Much more cooler than daz studio did.

And my laptop would heat up quick if you just looked at it funny.
I think it was an hp pavilion dv7 dual core with win 7.

I have a dv6 myself. It has a quad core Intel i5 2ghz, 6gb of RAM, a built in Intel graphics card and a dedicated ATI graphics card.

It can run hot when rendering in Poser and when running scans for long periods of time. Overall though I’m happy with it.

CHEERS!

Like the pink, real nice. Waiting for a render is challenging though smile

Waited 27 hours for this to render on account of the geometry based hair on the tiger by AM. Poser IDL with a scene-sized half dome, a couple of point lights, bits of Baroque Grandeur, V4 skin and shaders by me, Flapper frock from Rendo, a circus prop from the Plat club

27 hours!?

Mine redlines if it takes 27 minutes! Which it can on a good day. You must have quite a set up if you can leave it going for that long.

CHEERS!

PS (I hope I like tomorrow’s new release when I get it to get 50% off everything else I want.)
