MaxToLux Plugin Reference Manual
MaxToLux is the 3dsMax internal plugin to render directly inside 3dsmax using LuxCoreRenderer API. The plugin(s) is written in c++. MaxToLux is still under development and needs more work to be a complete renderer.
The original forum discussion about this topic can be found here
MaxToLux is written in C++, and it's integrated into the
interface like most other renderer plugins and natively
utilizes the LuxCore interface.
This renderer plugin is still in an early stage of development.
If you want to contribute by testing the plugin, suggesting
features or by joining the developer team refer to this thread
for more information.

We try to support the standard material 'Architectural material'. This is so that users of the architectural application can more easily render their scenes without converting the shaders. This is work in progress, but currently, it supports:
Glass Metal brushed Mirror
More features are added as we progress.

MaxToLux translates these standard lights into LuxCoreRender lights:
Omni Spot Light Directional Light Sky Light
some options maybe ignored.
if there is no light in the scene, the plugin will automatically create a skylight as a Default light in the scene. It'll work as ambient/global/sun light.
List of MaxToLux Cameras.
However, we support the standard 'target camera' and 'physical target camera. We will add support for 'viewport' type rendering soon. Also, a custom LuxCoreRender camera with all the LuxCoreRender camera settings in its GUI will be created as soon as we have time.
