I have seen some great renders by people using Lux, and I have also seen a lot of nice renders using Octane and other physically based render engines on DA. I do enjoy seeing all these nice renders, but can I ask that we include the tools we have used on future submissions to our group please? Although the group has always been associated with the Lux render engine, it may not be obvious to all viewers as it can be virtually impossible to differentiate between the results of physically based render engines.

I hope it will also make it easier during accepting submissions if we can see in the description that its confirmed the Lux render engine was used.

Thanks `¬)

Guidelines

Please read both the rules and membership description for a clear understanding!

Failure to read and adhere to the following rules will result in misunderstandings and/or possible submit denials, and/or possible removal from the club:

Membership
------------------
In order to start contributing art to this club, you need at least 1 high quality Luxrender image in your gallery and then become a member. To obtain membership, click the "Join Our Group" button above. Please include 1 link to your best image rendered with Luxrender before you click "Submit Request". Requests received without a link will be addressed, as that shows you have not yet read the information available to you here. All level membership privileges listed at the bottom, please read.

Watchers
------------
If you do not use Luxrender, or simply do not have gallery images available yet, please consider becoming one of our watchers instead. This will allow you to see and appreciate the artwork as it is added to our galleries. Click the Watch button at the top of the page to do this.

Submitting Images
------------

Once becoming a member, you can go to the appropriate folder in the group's gallery and click "Submit to this Gallery". This will give you a choice to submit images already in your personal gallery, or upload another image. You must be in a folder, as the feature folder is disabled from submission.

You can also submit from your image page by selecting the "Submit to a Group" link to the right, A window will pop up, select the appropriate choices and don't forget to select the folder that fits the image. If the group isn't showing in your choice window, select "Type a group name". Type "Luxrenders" (don't forget the "s" at the end) it will bring up this group, then select the appropriate folder. Once you start submitting here, this group *should* (doesn't always) start appearing in your choice of groups.

Upon approval of submits, your art will show up in the gallery. Approval is subject to compliance with group rules. See below in the rules section.

**If your image has been declined entrance to the gallery, you will be provided with comments and/or critique as to why. You are granted a chance to submit further images but a resubmission of that image will not be accepted unless it has been reworked meet the standard of the group.

Suggesting Image Favorites
------------

If there is a qualified image from a non-member, you may suggest it, which will then be voted, whether you're a member or not. No one is allowed to suggest their own images to the favorites folder, as it's really a place where people are impressed with other artists' work, not to create your own statistic or popularity.

If you want to suggest your own image, it makes more sense to become a member and submit the image to the gallery instead of the favorites folder.
