Replace render engine with LuxCoreRender

As LuxCoreRender has active development and is fully open source and free, I think it makes sense to move to this render engine, instead of the current no-development and slow render engine.

The big benefit is it also supports GPU rendering.

More info can be found on the LuxCoreRender website.

Re: Replace render engine with LuxCoreRender

Looks really interesting, but i think it's not as easy to change as it sounds in your post...
But you're absolutely right, working with a no-longer-developed engine will end in a death-end...

Re: Replace render engine with LuxCoreRender

LuxRender / LuxCoreRender was one of the engines we tested in our search for an engine faster than SunFlow.
Unfortunately, our first tests with this engine weren't really wonderful...

Re: Replace render engine with LuxCoreRender

I'm not the best expert on GL or Rendering engines, but what about Filament? https://github.com/google/filament

Does it have the feature SH needs?

Re: Replace render engine with LuxCoreRender

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think we'll try more engines during a while. Please understand that the study we published took already some time to be achieved...
