Re: OpenCL rendering with Reality/LuxRender - results so far

I'm currently on 18.7.1. Reality lists openCL as "v2.1 AMD-APP - 2639.5".

Are you suggesting that downgrading to 1.9 could be beneficial?

Re: OpenCL rendering with Reality/LuxRender - results so far

Yeah, it feels like the writing has been on the wall for a few years now. I really don't want to give up on Reality/LuxRender, but it's hard to see it bounce back from the current situation. I've been looking at Blender lately. I would love something that gave us a seamless bridge between DS and Ble...

Re: OpenCL rendering with Reality/LuxRender - results so far

Hi Sigstan! Yes, I've perused your guide several times over the years. Many thanks again for creating it! :) I've reduced max path length as low as Reality will let me (8 - I've tested editing the LXS and found that I could really live with 4 for many scenes, but I'm usually too lazy and just let it...

Re: Reality 4.3.1 makes DAZ3D crash

I think this is the same issue as this http://preta3d.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=973. Unfortunately, it seems it was never resolved. Taking a quick look at what Reality_DS64.dll actually depends on, the only thing that isn't already included in DS or Windows are the MSVCP100 and MSVCR100 dl...

OpenCL rendering with Reality/LuxRender - results so far

Well. many attempts later, my personal conclusion is this: Reality default skin materials are simply too complex to render with LuxRender openCL. At least this is true for my setup (24GB RAM, AMD R9 390 8GB GPU). It's not a hardware limitation, it's a problem in the software stack (possibly limited ...

Re: IG IRAY and Reality not Compatible?

"IG Iray Dawn to Dusk 2 Atmospheric Lighting" is an IRAY-specific product. Maybe the product page could be a bit more specific, but at least they put "IRAY" in the name of the product. There is really no reason to expect any other renderer to handle IRAY instructions than IRAY.

Re: Is Luxrender gone?

Well, I finally got it to build. It turned out to be easier when you find the WindowsCompile and WindowsCompileDeps repos.. :) .. and then I got another LXS parse failure. Got past it by turning off SSS on all Skin textures in Reality. .. and then I got another LXS parse failure. Got past it by turn...

Re: OpenCL Error 2

Other people have encountered it. (Not me, though.) http://preta3d.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=893 http://preta3d.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1003 I believe sigstan is correct - this can only be solved by an updated version of Reality. (I'm hoping we'll get one, but I'm starting to f...
