congrats, Flyerx! all the best in your endeavors.

I have never used Poseray :oops: and really know little about it, but adaptive displacement and adaptive subdivision are no easy task (so I hear), congrats!

Fletch,

Thanks, I still have some ideas for the future of PoseRay as a bridge between models and renderers. PoseRay is not only for Poser but it can read other formats such as LWO, 3DS & DXF. Any model imported into PoseRay can be converted to KT.

PoseRay can convert animations from Poser to POV-Ray by converting a set of OBJ files. PoseRay could easily be modified to export a set of xml or kzx files and render them in KT. I do not know if it would be practical since KT would have to load a new mesh for each frame. In POV-Ray is just a loop in the script and PoseRay creates that automatically.

Maybe in the future if a common animation specification is defined more programs could exchange animation information among them. The closest thing that I know that could bridge this gap right now is COLLADA.

loading a new mesh for each frame can easily be accomplished w/ KT's merge function... maybe something to ask Giannis for more details.

if you File>Merge>Replace Mesh you don't lose your materials or sky or lights.

it's up to the user to render the scene economically... because KT caches the irradiance for animations, you would either re-use an irradiance cache that is now 'wrong' for some scenes, or you would just not use the irradiance cache feature... which increases render times, but is not the end of the world.

Excellent work, FlyerX !!! :shock:

Great translation of meshes and materials and very, very fast

I was in a hurry to test the new beta and here is a (very rough :oops: ) render of a .lwo car model.
No interventions on materials.

Many thanks!

Dan,

Looks good. One thing I noticed with KT is that if a material has white refraction it still will not be completely transparent unless its diffuse color is black. I will look into scaling down the diffuse color according to the transparency as an export option. Those windows and lamp covers are frosted.

Although it is very different to the other render engines I have used, I really like how KT handles specular and shininess.

Be sure to get Patrick's , it's a great starter kit if you are learning about KT mats. See also the top of the materials forum for the master listing sticky thread... with link to all you need.

FlyerX ,

Is it possible to add a "Swap Y and Z Axes" option for imported .obj files as an option to KT export tab?
I vaguely remember I used such an option before, but I can't remember where it was (if it was)... "Groups" tab?

Thanks!
Regards!
Dan

Dan,

That option is now called Flip Y-Z axis and it is in the Faces, vertices and normals subtab in the Groups tab. The buttons are on the bottom right.
