Plugins

General Note

As of Chunky 2.4.0 renderer switching is supported. ChunkyClPlugin’s ChunkyCLRenderer cannot yet be selected to be used in conjunction with the Denoising Plugin though they won’t cause an exception anymore. Plugins which have not yet been updated to support the new addRenderer API feature (Ambient Occlusion Plugin and Depth Buffer Plugin) are still supported and are added with the name of PluginRenderer. At the time of writting the Discord Rich Presence plugin does not work with Chunky 2.4.

Installation

Clicking Manage Plugins within the Chunky Launcher will open the Plugin Manager and create a plugins folder in the install directory. Chunky plugins, which are .jar files, should be placed in the plugins folder and then Enabled within the Plugin Manager.

Note - The Denoising Plugin requires additional setup.

Chunky-octree-plugin

created by aTom3333

Stable

New release

This is a plugin for Chunky that adds more octree implementations with a range of uses and benefits. See the GitHub repo for more information and use however I will list some of the implementations below:

  • Compressed Siblings Implementation - Half memory usage vs Packed (default), Cannot be built (ie needs an existing octree), Render times are doubled.

  • Disk Implementation - Caches octree to disk (temp directory). While this is extremely slow when it comes to loading and rendering, it does bypass typical chunk limits with RAM. Recommend pairing with Compressed Siblings for rendering.

  • Garbage-collected Implementation - Generally faster octree creation/loading times.

  • Small-leaf Implementation - Should offer a 33% memory saving Vs Packed at a small performance cost. This has yet to be tested

GitHub Repo

Releases page

Chunky 2.4 - 0.4.0-pre.1 pre-release

Installation

  1. Download the (pre-)release denoiser .jar file from the GitHub Repo.

     chunky-denoiser-chunky1.jar 	- Chunky 1.X
    
     chunky-denoiser-chunky2.jar 	- Chunky 2.0-2.3
    
     chunky-denoiser.jar 		- Chunky 2.4+
    
  2. Download the Precompiled Intel Open Image Denoise Binary Packages for your OS. ie for Windows it would be eg oidn-1.4.1.x64.vc14.windows.zip.

  3. Extract the oidn .zip file to a chosen location (ie C:\Program Files\oidn-1.4.1.x64.vc14.windows\...)

  4. Place downloaded denoising plugin .jar in Chunky’s plugins folder as with any plugin and enable in the Plugin manager.

  5. After launching Chunky, a new Denoiser tab will be found among the render controls. Expand this tab, next to the Denoiser there will be a button ... clicking this will open a file selector. Navigate to the install location and then into bin and select oidnDenoise.exe. The full path to the Denoiser would be displayed in the text field. For this example it would be: C:\Program Files\oidn-1.4.1.x64.vc14.windows\bin\oidnDenoise.exe

  6. Profit!

    The Denoising Plugin with render the Normal and Albedo Map before the Noisy image. Once the Target SPP is reached the image will be denoised and saved into snapshots with the extension *.denoised.*. You can also find the orginal .pfm files in the scenes directory should you wish to use these for anything.
