If you have found something that works then go with it!  I think maybe you can’t separate things like the diffuse and specular which you can with normal objects and also that the hair does not show in the Depth pass, which is a pain. I haven’t looked at this area for a while.

I don’t think you will regret getting Luxus for Carrara!

Just been sent a 6$ voucher from Daz cos they sold a bucket load of some figure .Maybe that 6$ could go towards Lux.

Yeah The Depth pass thing was a bit annoying.. I tend not to fret anymore, and just use the blur tool in photoshop. Like you say if it works for you.
Question 2.
  Does Lux do Depth of Field, the Carrara one takes forever if you want it any good. Thats why I “waft” the blur tool over stuff.

I think I will head over to the store clutching my 6$ voucher in my hot sticky hand!

Depth of field is another thing that isn’t there yet but has been promised (I think!) for a future release.

Thanks.

Dammit, to get 6$ off I have to spend over 30$, Lux is $29.98…...I need to buy something for 3 cents!!!

I know what you are thinking…what a skinflint. Just watching the pennies these days.

Well I guess th only other option is to buy a gift card and the redeem it, so you will have the change in store credit for another time, but I don’t think gift cards qualify for this sort of offer.

Good call chohole, got it for 25$
Not looked at it yet. Think I need to go to the threads that tell you what to do .I think I need the actual “luxrender” first.

Should I run it in the current beta or C8.1, or both, any recomendations. I will immerse myself in this tomorrow.

Thanks. I clicked on the install icon thingy and it automatically went into 8.5 for whatever reason.I seem to remember reading about having to put files into folders manually .Was this for the beta versions.Anyway seems to be up and running.

The manual installation was during the beta.

Howdy!

Finally have some time to play with this. Read the manual and it mentions: Luxus adds the LuxRender ligts
Infinite, Projection, Sky2, Sun, and SunSky2.

Where can i find these or how do i add them to the scene?
Is there a more extended manual available?

Thanks,
Elele.

PS: is the past tense of “to read” also “read”. Always wondered about that :D
PPS: seems there’s a typo in the read me… “ligts”

The extra light types can be added from the Insert menu - or even add a different light and then change the light type to one of the Lux ones.
