Well I looked at the website, but I don't think that anybody would be able to make an ASL script with it simply because it is not possible to do so with ASL.


Since luxrender is opensource, and comes with C++ Api, it would be possible for Steve himself to implement LuxRender into Anim8or itself. I think that it would be a pretty cool addition to Anim8or, since everyone is always wanting more renderers, thought I don't know how complicated it would be to use the renderer (remember, anim8or is know for its simplicity) also if you are running vista, you also have to download Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package, but I figure if you want a new renderer that bad, you won't have any problems installing it. Another good thing about LuxRender is that it works with different OS's.

Will Steve add Lux, I don't know, but it would be a great addition to Anim8or.

You might be able to ask someone to create an exporter to the luxrender format if there is one. If they can't do that with asl then someone might be convinced to create a seperate Exporter. Kind of like the Ani to Pov exporter. I don't know if anyone around here has the time to do that though. You could try asking on the Lux Render site
Having fun with ASL!
