    Phoronix: LuxCoreRender 2.2 Released With Intel Open Image Denoise Yields Faster Render Times

    LuxCoreRender, the open-source physically based renderer for execution on CPUs as well as OpenCL accelerators / GPUs, is out with version 2.2 and now integrates Intel's open-source Open Image Denoise...

    Wow, the amount of detail it teases out of the first & third sample scenes is just unreal.

      So does Blender. Perhaps we need another article on that as well? /s

        How can one render time be faster than another? "The new version has 10% faster seconds!" It's called clock skew and you need NTP to keep it at bay.
        It's "faster rendering" or "shorter render time".

          I'm quite happy seeing how fast the development of LuxCoreRenderer has gone since emerging from LuxRender. The new features allow much faster rendering, while still supporting the more boutique rendering methods that many path tracers don't support, and integrate well into Blender 2.7/2.8.

          As a personal opinion, while less flexible than Blender's Cycles render engine, LuxCoreRender does seem easier to produce 'nice' looking images.

            No, we only need articles about Apple stuff, right Marc?

              How do I use Open Image Denoise? Do I really need an albedo/normal image or can I just work with a single picture?
              Or is this only for rendered pictures?

                What does Apple have to do with this thread? Or is he an Apple fanboy?

                  Nothing. I assume Vistaus is just being catty. Please don't stir the pot.
