0.6 test 2... half baked or fully baked? :)

Post by OnoSendai » Sun Sep 03, 2006 12:37 am

Ok... so i've got a really half-baked release, 0.6 test2,
that i could put up. Since i recoded so much stuff, a *lot* of stuff is broken.
Broken things:
normal (backwards) path tracing, dispersion, absorption, image saving in non-mlt mode, double sided mats, probably lots of other stuff too.
However, what's there works really well, and should be faster and with less noise?
So do people want to try this out, or should i fix it all first? (may take a week or so)

I don't know :)
But if you put it up now we will still get the fixed version when it's done.. ...right? 8)
So It's the same for me :P :? heh...

Edit: Maybe you should, at least if there is some new stuff we exporter writers need to add in :)

Yes... i will still fix the missing features :)

EDIT: the scene format is unchanged, it's just the rendering core that has changed.

NO! Please don't release any 0.62 or something. In the past versions many small things didn't work, for every release a new exporter and so on. I think it gets impossible to get an good workflow with many of this bugs.

I would love to get a v062 for testing!!!

But I think its realy important to post a "Knowen Bugs List" too, not only a changelog!
So everybody would know what the v062 is all about, reducing bug posting of stuff that is already known!

5 vs 3: release it is :)

EDIT: taken down, it crashes outside of the IDE :)
EDIT EDIT: time for some coffee, then i will fix and re-release!!!:)

list of broken stuff coming...
General guide: just stick to bidir path tracing or bidir with MLT.
And remember that only bidir with MLT saves the image to disk :)

I think it's your descition. If you like to get some feedback from us about the new version then you should release it. If you don't like to answer a list of questions about what why does not ....... then do not :wink:

By the way I just saw you released it... :shock: :D ok, there we will go... 8)

EDIT: and away :( :cry: I was too slow :wink:
EDIT EDIT: take your time, will take a coffee too for you :lol:

Ok.. another attempt at working-ness:

http://www.indigorenderer.com/montecarl ... _test2.zip

EDIT:
changelog:
v0.6 test 2
* changed some stuff so that bump mapping won't hang warmup on dodgy geometry.
* fixed bump mapping for phong that was broken for v0.6 test 1
* Added PNG texture loading
* rewrote bidir stuff
* speedup for objecttree
* improved/fixed bidir and sky interaction
* kd-tree cache on disk (think this is new in 0.6 test2???)
* speedups for spectral BSDF and exitant radiance calculations

-----------broken stuff:-----------
double sided mats (probably)
possible all bump mapping / shading normals
dispersion
absorption
backwards path tracing
image saving for non-mlt bidir
etc...

i get this:
"MLTPathTracer::buildPathFromSamples disabled." ??? :?:

EDIT: Sorry, i think forgot to enable bidir ....
EDIT: It works :D speculars on phong are phantastic/fast, much less of noise :D rounded surfaces are brocken/flat :oops:
