poke.
Blender still not have any retopo overlay.
And it is important to have it.

William Leeson (leesonw) added a comment to D6250: Fix T43835, T54284: Cycles with no ray offsetting.

I have been working on fixing the static scenes w.r.t. removing ray offsetting with some success. However, as can be seen in the images below adjacent triangles in the mesh have some issues that need looking at. Also at large sizes precision problems start occurring which also need some work.

Dynamic scenes were largely working last week with similar issues but they rendered glitch on CUDA and optix just fine. I need to investigate why this has started occurring with the static scene solution.

Isn't this feature developed anymore? It's a necessary feature for game makers, so I'm waiting.

William Leeson (leesonw) added a comment to D6250: Fix T43835, T54284: Cycles with no ray offsetting.

Yes it's just based on this as lots has changed in cycles-x so I'll create a new patch.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D6250: Fix T43835, T54284: Cycles with no ray offsetting.

Also, I am wondering if it is best to create an new diff instead of altering this one?

If it's a completely changed implementation (which is likely due to cycles-x changes), it's best create a new diff. Still I guess you will reuse code and ideas from this patch.

William Leeson (leesonw) commandeered D6250: Fix T43835, T54284: Cycles with no ray offsetting.

Hi All, I have been working on getting this working in cycles-x and have achieved some success.




This currently only works for triangle meshes as it uses the object and primitive ids. The offset algorithm needs a bit of fixing still, particularly along triangle seams also I currently only have GPU, CPU but not Optix working yet. I'll post a diff after I clean up the code as it is quite messy ATM. Also, I am wondering if it is best to create an new diff instead of altering this one?

I'd like to see if we can get this patch into cycles-x. I was wondering if you would help out with this?

Is there any movement on this?

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) I know you have concern over performance regressions, but I'd rather it be correct and slow than incorrect and fast. I haven't been able to work around the artefacts (https://developer.blender.org/T85057) except for in some special cases.
