Will KRay 3 support new PBR materials in LW 2018?

Yes, all materials...that's why we prepare K3 since one year.
G. soon back to work and he must add VCM to the Core. VCM is necessary to render fast these shaders without noise. I do not talk about single object in basic studio (this what we see on youtube) but about interiors. We will have of course our K3 Shader System but in the beginning we start support LW system.

I never expected to get to K3 as of now. Unfortunately, my expectations from the new LW renderer have not been justified yet. Yes, there are new wonderful shaders and volumetric systems - but practically the same, the old rendering system, just adapted to new tools.

Like I said many time:
Newtek make evolution not revolution :evil:
We go with our path with K3, step by step.
Good PM render engine you write in 2-3 years (if you are talented) in one year you can do nothing.
