Cannot change filename

Postby yagakisan » Mon Jun 06, 2016 4:15 pm

Hi all,
since a few days I have this strange issue, I can't change the default "reality_scene" filename of my renders even typing a new name in the same folder set in the Advanced tab.

I can't say what happened because I used to save a lot of renders in the same folder, without change any options.
My render folder is set as "d:\renders", when I start a new render I change the output file to "d:\renders\name.png", I tried also with the name only, but when I start rendering Reality overwrites the reality_scene folder and files.

Thank you

I have updated Reality to the last 4.3 version but the problem is the same.
I tried leaving blank the default location for new scenes and specifying the folder/name.png in the Output panel only, no changes.
When Luxrender opens, in the Info tab the name is always "reality_scene".... :(

Anyone can help me?

Can you explain what's happening? I don't see how you cannot change the name. Do you click on the button next to the file name?
Please post some screenshot to describe what's happening.

Thank you for the reply Paolo (are you Italian?), here are my settings:
- daz studio 4.9.2.70 Pro 64bit
- reality 4.3.0.16155
- luxrender 1.5.1 Build 15282
- OS Windows 10 Pro 64bit
- scene setup: 1 Victoria 4.2 figure, 1 simple background, 3 mesh lights (1 top, 2 mesh), 1 camera

I attach the screenshots of my Reality settings.
I set the name for my render, let's say "test" (.png): when I start rendering with Luxrender I expect to see that a "test-Resources" folder will be created in "e:\dati\rendertemp" as happened for all my previous renders (I have a lot of "[name_of_scene]-Resources" folders in the same place), instead the already present "reality_scene-Resources" folder, reality_scene.flm, .lxi and .png files will be overwritten.
During the render, in Luxrender I see that the filename (Info tab) is still "reality_scene".

Yes, I'm Italian. We can switch to Italian if it's easier.
BTW, if you are using Reality 4.3 then Lux should be at version 1.6

No prob, maybe this topic is helpful to others.
I updated Reality launching the RealityInstaller.exe downloaded directly by the link from preta3d, inserting my order and license numbers.
How can I update Luxrender?
BTW I found that inside the original unpacked zip file (Reality_DS_w64.zip) there is another zip (Reality_DS64.zip), and inside it there is a folder for Luxrender. Is that?

EDIT:
Ok, I reinstalled Reality, I made some mess with the folders because I' m using 3 different locations for DAZ Studio, Reality and Library... I try now
Thank you

Yes, Lux in included in Reality, there is nothing to do to update it. Just install 4.3.

Cheers.

I tried changing the default folder for new scene (Advanced tab) and setting a different one for the filename, no success.
I' m getting mad, I have a lot of renders to do in queue, I can't do them one at time!

For what I see the problem is between Reality plugin and Luxrender, as if Luxrender doesn't receive the file name and keeps the default settings.
Anyway somewhere is set to use "e:\dati\rendertemp" as folder for resource files, and doesn't change it even when I choose a different one in Reality Advanced panel.
I tried to delete all of the Reality folders and reinstall from scratch, nothing changes.
