Please select the version of LuxRender you would like to download

The following downloads include the LuxRender engine but not all available exporter plugins. To export scenes to LuxRender you might need to download and install the plugin for your application separately.

You can also access source code and download weekly testing builds in the forum.

LuxRender is available for Windows, Linux MacOS (10.6 or above) and comes in several variants.

The 64 bits version will only run on 64 bits operating systems, and the SSE version is for compatibility with older processors.

If you get a message about a missing “opencl.dll” file, either update your graphics drivers or try the No OpenCL version.

Instead of downloading LuxRender yourself, on certain Linux distributions LuxRender can be installed using a package manager. To see which distributions include LuxRender, have a look at oswatershed.org.
