Spheric Labs is working hard and fast, the new proof-of-concept build that was just released, includes enough features to call it a beta version, it works until the end of April.

Luxus for Carrara alpha version released – Luxrender for Carrara plugin

Developer Spheric Labs that is selling Luxus the Luxrender plugin for Daz Studio,  has already released an alpha release for the Carrara version. Since it is an alpha version, it is very limited and should be seen a glimpse of what we may see in the near future if all goes well. Here is the Forum thread with the discussion and download (updated): http://carraracafe.com/forum-3/#cid=1,tid=30 Direct download link for Luxus: http://sphericlabs.com/carrara/Luxus.zip I have made the following simplifications to get this to you quicker. 1) Win64 only for now. (Please don’t kill me over this) 2) LuxRender must be installed like so – CarraraFolder — Carrara.exe — LuxRender — LuxRender.exe 3) Autotranslation is very primitive. I doubt it will work at all. 4) 2 new shaders. Lux Surface should be the top most shader, Lux Matte must be in the first slot of Lux Surface 5) Only the diffuse channel of Lux Matte will work. You can set a color or a texture there. 6) The Rendering Options only let you specify general stuff, not options on those things. Get Luxrender here: http://www.luxrender.net/en_GB/standalone Luxrender gallery: http://www.luxrender.net/forum/gallery2.php Luxus for Daz Studio: http://www.daz3d.com/luxus Updated 20130412: Added a quick render comparison of Carrara internal vs Luxrender via Luxus alpha. To start Luxrender, note the top right corner: Renderer: Luxus via Luxrender, then press Render as usual.   Installation: Extract the zip file of Luxus into the Extensions folder of Carrara 8 64bit. Install Luxrender in the Carrara 8 folder, see the screenshot below that shows the correct paths/files:  ... read more

CarraraCafe forum upgrade plans

Holly Wetcircuit has posted about the new forum upgrade plans, here is the original thread if you want to join the discussion: In the next weeks I’ll be launching the new section of the Cafe, with better forums, groups, and galleries. No old posts are being deleted from THIS forum, but unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a way to export old posts to the new forum…. We are still looking for a way to port them, but it’s possible we will be forced to start clean. I would like to keep the old forums for a topical “knowledge base” so we can organize tutorials by subject (something that has already been happening…) The new forum allows for sharing files (.zip will download automatically, .car and ,cbr will have to be “saved” to disc as browsers don’t know what they are and try to open them as a text string… working on a way to force those to download), naturally we can embed videos and pics, also tagging other members in a post, full formatting, forum topics can be labeled as “answered”…, and everything else you’d expect for a real forum. The new galleries allow privacy settings, so you could create a sub-gallery only to share with “friends”, or to keep private. There are Groups which contain their own discussion forums (hopefully we can provide a home for some longterm group projects, as well as specialized knowledge groups like for Unity users etc…). There are Profiles which some may want to use that work sort of like Facebook. If you enter your location you may be able to find... read more

Also, the manual for Mimic Pro plugin for Carrara is now mirrored here, it got lost in the upgrade the the new DAZ 3D site. Also, some watermarks have been added, when you want to show what software was used to render. Thanks to Jay_NOLA for providing the files. Get them all on the Downloads page right here:... read more
