I'm a noob. There are some materials in the LuxRender database that I would like to use, but I don't know how to convert them to rsb. Is there a tutorial out there?

Small tutorial how to use presets.

If you want to use materials from the database in Reality, do this.
In material right click on the material that you want to give a preset
select-1.jpg


Chose from the list,
Apply Universal preset
select-2.jpg


Now a new window will open
Choose a catagory
select-3.jpg


Now choose a preset from the list in the window.
On the right side you will see a Luxball with the texture you selected.
Click Ok, now your material will have the preset.
select-4.jpg


As you can see, the luxball has the 24K Gold preset on it.

Did you mean this Luxrender database:

http://www.luxrender.net/lrmdb2/en/material%26page=1

Those .lbm2 files are for LuxBlend (LuxRender in Blender). Reality can not import these files or read the database. However, most of those materials can be recreated, by hand, in Reality. You have to open the .lbm2 file in a text editor. You should see an area that describe how the material is built:

example:

[{"type":"MakeNamedMaterial","name":"LightBluePyrex","extra_tokens":"
","paramset":[{"type":"bool","name":"architectural","value":false},
{"type":"float","name":"cauchyb","value":0},
{"type":"float","name":"film","value":0},
{"type":"float","name":"filmindex","value":1.3332999944687},
{"type":"float","name":"index","value":1.4739999771118},
{"type":"color","name":"Kr","value":
[0.69999998807907,0.69999998807907,0.69999998807907]},
{"type":"color","name":"Kt","value":
[0.83134520053864,0.94818097352982,1]},
{"type":"string","name":"type","value":"glass"}]}]}

You then have to transpose the above into a material within the Reality editor. Note that most of those materials can be recreated but not all.

Cheers,
Lyne

Thanks, Marcel! I think I had this piece under control, but tutorials are always nice.
