For Developers

Project Structure

The code is located in src/luxrender.

  • core Most of the main work (rendering loop, material previews) starts here.
  • export All geometry export happens here, also all materials defined in the old material editor (panel-based) are exported here. Note: nodetree export functions are defined in properties. The luxcore subfolder contains the LuxCore API export routines.
  • extensions_framework Abstraction code for LuxBlend's data structures
  • operators All operators are located here.
  • outputs API specific stuff.
  • properties Definitions of LuxBlend datastructures (e.g. materials, lamp settings, export settings, basically every panel you see in the UI). This also includes the node editor as well as the Classic/LuxCore export routines for material and volume nodetrees.
  • ui Drawing of UI elements happens here. Most of the time this is just a call to the corresponding property group (defined in properties/), but sometimes we need more control than those can offer, so there's also "Blender-Style" UI code.
