i use blender2.48 when i save file it’s *.blend how i can render file or change to *.lxs
and what kind of file that can open in luxrender?
please guide me :spin:

You are missing the export script. The export script converts the Blender scene in to a .lxs file for you.

Just visit the Lux website and read the documentation.

Here is a link to the tutorial on the luxrender site for using lux with blender.

Here is a link to the manual.

Also they have forums on that site where you can post questions about using lux with blender.

i try to install Luxrender 0.6 for Linux i use Ubuntu9.04 but i can’t use export file of Luxrender
from manual http://http://www.luxrender.net/wiki/index.php?title=Installing_LuxRender_and_LuxBlend
i want to know this is correct location for Luxrender file or not? and this has correct export file or?

this is location and file in scripts = /usr/lib/blender/scripts
inside folder scripts i got this

[email protected]:/usr/lib/blender# cd scripts
[email protected]:/usr/lib/blender/scripts# ls
LuxBlend_v0.6RC5.py luxconsole luxrender ogremeshesexporter.py ogrepkg
[email protected]:/usr/lib/blender/scripts#

what’s wrong ? how i can do or move file for correct ? who know please guide me.:rolleyes:

It looks like that scripts folder is not the folder that Blender is looking in. To solve this, you can add the path to the folder where you put LuxBlend to Blender’s preferences (User preferences window -> File Paths -> Scripts) and save default settings (ctrl-u).

It does not matter where you put the LuxRender system. Just make sure you are pointing to the executable from LuxBlend (click little button and browse to the folder). You may also want to make an Export folder as well. That way, when LuxRender starts to work, you will know where to look for your results.

:yes: ok. now luxrender it’s can work thank you very much for everybody to guide me.
i think maybe from system have some problem make program it stuck .

and i have problem when i want to export file to render how i can do?
