Hi to all,

can someone please advise me how to set the surface proparties so that displacement maps transfer to LuxRender using Luxus.

I attached two quick renders where You can see displacement visible when using 3Delight and also that this is not visible in LuxRender.

Zou can also see my setting for Luxus - did I forgot something? The same happens for example with stone surfaces - I have stone with beautiful reliefs in 3Deligt and plain gray shapes in Luxrender.

Anz adivse is very appreciated

I’ve found going between rendering engines that bumps and displacement values vary in intensity depending on the engine, not the value, but I’ve never found the magic conversion procedure, it’s more of a plug and pray.
