[Animation] Automatically load .ini file after loading a scene

I'm rendering an animation right now and want to have a pre-configured luxrender settings file loaded for all the images in the sequence. Right now I have to do this manually since the panel settings are reset every time a frame is done rendering. Is there a way to automate this process?

Reality Subdivision Distorts Model

Hi, I'm currently rendering a low-poly furnace model through Reality. I want to apply a displacement map to my model so I have my subdivision set to '1' and 'Keep Sharp Edges' checked. However, Reality still attempts to smooth the edges of my model causing unwanted distortion (see attachment). How d...

Re: RUNTIME ERROR: OpenCL device selection string has the wrong length, must be 3 instead of 2

I use a second machine for network rendering which has a different number of OpenCL devices than my main machine. This means I can't get it to work for OpenCL rendering without disabling on of the extra devices. Is there a way to get a functional workaround for this? As far as I remember, even if y...

Re: RTX Performance in Lux

The enormous price tag and uncertainty around performance is currently keeping me from getting one. Another major concern is the fact that NVIDIA seems to have no plans to support OpenCL 2.0 which Intel and AMD have been supporting for years.

Re: Reality/Luxrender updates and/or status(?)

So... it's almost December. Any chance we'll get Luxcorerender support by the end of the year? :D

Re: RTX Performance in Lux

WOW! That is impressive. Although am I correct in understanding that these benchmarks are from Luxmark3.1 which runs the new version of Luxcorender that Reality does not currently support?

RTX Performance in Lux

Has anyone tried OpenCL rendering in Reality with a RTX Card? According to Luxmark they should perform very well, but I want to know for sure since they are a pretty big investment.

AMD vs Nvidia for OpenCL Rendering

I'm in the market for a new graphics card and was wondering if AMD or NVIDIA performed better in OpenCL rendering. I know that AMD cards support OpenCL 2.0 and Nvidia cards do not. Nvidia cards also seem to under-perform in Luxmark benchmarks compared to AMD cards. Can anyone tell me if one has an a...
