Just a heads up: the sub-surface scattering feature of UberPOV requires nearly all materials to have an ior. I'm not sure what the proper values are for metal, pearl, rubber, etc. though.

Hallo together,

I read the hole post and are quite interessted in Lego brick rendering. First of all I'd like to thank you for the work to provide the high quality parts for rendering.
I tried to do the setup like described in the first post, but I'm not quite sure if I did it right. Since I'm not very familiar with PovRay I have the question about the following step in the introduction:

Damien Roux Wrote:You may want to put the lg_xxxx.inc files in your usual LGEO directory and the xxxx.inc files in another folder (don't forget to declare it in PovRay or it will not find the requested files)

I did the first step and created a directory called "parts" in my LGEO directory and copied all xxxx.inc files there. What I'm missing is the last part. How to I tell PovRay to look for the files in that location?

I tried to render a part without adding the directory somewhere and I got a rendered brick, but where is the difference if I add the directory? Do the bricks look different?

Best Regards

Sven

I suggested to create a new folder to avoid messing up everything as what I provide is still WIP. But if you copy all my files in your LGEO directory it will produce the same result.

You can tell PovRay to use other directory by editing the povray.ini file.

Hi Damien,

thank you very much. This was easy.

By the way: Currently I load the .ldr files in LDView, zoom to fit "ctrl+f" and export the povray file. Is there a more easy way to "convert" a ldr file to a povray file? As far as I know there is no way to script LDView to do this. Currently I use a python script which starts LDView, sends the keys and closes LDView again. It would be very cool, if someone knows a nicer way.

Best Regards

Sven

With ldview there is no other way at the time.


Re: New Parts for LGEO Library - Sven v. Beuningen - 2015-10-28

Hi Damien,

I'm not bound to LDview. I just picked it as a first approach, since it works somehow. Is there another way known without LDview?

Best Regards

Sven

Maybe L3P but it's kinda outdated


Re: New Parts for LGEO Library - Sven v. Beuningen - 2015-10-28

Ok thank you. Then I think I'll stick with LDView for now.

Awesome work!!!

I would like to request a part for any coming update (if there's going to be any).

It is part "4867 Tail Plane" (see link http://brickset.com/parts/4188568)

I can't seem to find it anywhere, so chances are that it doesn't exist as an include file for the LGEO library yet.
