Mitsuba Blender Addon

Authors: Wenzel Jakob, Bartosz Styperek, Francesc Juhe

This directory contains the addon for Mitsuba Renderer <-> Blender integration. It is based on the excellent LuxBlend 2.5 code from Luxrender project.

Mitsuba Blender exporter tries to convert Blender all scene information to Mitsuba Renderer format. Custom properties panels are added to Blender UI to set Mitsuba Renderer options and custom attributes.


Copy this folder to Blender addons folder and then enable Mitsuba addon on 'Addons > Render' section of Blender 'User Preferences' panel.
After enabling the addon, configure the 'Executable Path' setting in 'Mitsuba Engine Settings' render panel by selecting the folder where Mitsuba Renderer binary is installed. Blender might have to be restarted after configuring 'Exectuable Path' for Material preview to work.
