LuxCore Binary SDK

Postby Dade » Thu Mar 23, 2017 4:48 am

Introduction

LuxCore binary SDK makes easier to develop LuxCore based applications by avoiding to have to go trough the lengthy and complex process of compiling LuxCore/LuxRays (and all dependencies).

C++ & Python API

It includes the support for C++ and Python language.

Anyone interested in trying the latest LuxCore version (i.e. not only developers) can download the above version and used the included binaries (pyluxcore.pyd, luxcoreui, etc.). You have only to be aware that luxcore is compiled as a DLL so you have to place LuxCore DLL in the same place where Embree DLL is placed.

That's great. When it gets integrated with luxblend, if I'm able to, I'll try to recompile/update the Windows release (also compile process may or may not be different, will see and ask if there are issues).

The API reference manual looks great.
This really lowers the bar for new developers I hope.

Not very much tested so expect some bump head but you should be able to just link with luxcore.lib and use luxcore.dll at runtime.

I can't find recent 1.7 linux builds for luxcore (non SDK).

- when you mean you can use luxcoreui luxconsole ect - does this mean I can use the binary SDK in place of regular lux 1.7 builds?

It seems all the weeklies are win64 and mac but no recent linux builds... wondering if I can use this as a substitute
