Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

  1. Does this work with Blender? Or could i easily just export my model as say, a .obj and render it in there? Looks amazing though!

  2. Can somebody help me? I downoaded this and tried to run it and it says I am missing msvcp100? It tells me to reinstall it. I did, and i still got that problem. Help?

  3. @Ben
    you can import .obj

    @Fernando Pires
    "Data exchange with the major modeling packages is supported using the COLLADA file format. Mitsuba can read DAE files and convert them into its native XML-based file format. In the future, additional integration is planned, e.g. plugins for Maya and 3ds max."

  4. I downloaded Visual Studio 2010 C++ redistributable like you said and even re downloaded the file and it still gives me the same error :/

    So, How doi I install this renderer in Blender 2.59 using Ubuntu?
    I downloaded the collada-dom deb file from the site, I have the mitsuba/file/0778a3d709d3/data/blender/mitsuba folder, but what's next?

  6. if i try to setup integrator render settings to "Bidirectional path tracer" i get following exception message:

    ---------------------------
    Critical exception
    ---------------------------
    2011-09-02 21:37:53 ERROR main [PluginManager] Plugin "bdpt" not found!
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    ... it seems the plugin is compleately missing. (using "Mitsuba 0.3.0 64bit.zip" on windows 7 x64)

  7. Comes at a good time because of the collada improvements in Pepper branch.!
    :) Since i think Mitsuba works primarily with Collada
    Previoussly Collada imports was very buggy and mesh had problems. I have yet to see this
    All Thanks to Mitsuba the Team
