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

Two days later, and I'm still blown away! Any scene I dare throw at the GPU comes through the setup phase in seconds. This should be in the user guide, or something.

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

there are other ways to downgrade to opencl 1.9 than downgrading the whole driver. You can keep certain files from opencl and copy them on top of the newest ones that come with the latest drivers, but I haven't tried that method. I just did (as described in http://preta3d.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f...

Re: AMD Radeon LuxRender users

Okay, so I managed to get the best of both worlds (ie old OpenCL + driver improvements). I grabbed the AMD OpenCL drivers from the 15.12 package (which correspond to v1915.2) 1. amdocl64.dll 2. amdocl.dll 3. amdocl12cl64 4. amdocl12cl.dll 5. amd_opencl32.dll 6. amd_opencl64.dll Directory is: C:\AMD...

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...
