While working on my current project to explore the differences between luxrender and blender I came in touch with setting up a linear workflow.
Until now I knew what it was and never found it necessary to test or use it in one of my projects. The steps involved using it in blender especially under linux seemed too tedious.
As this project was aiming at photorealism, it was a good opportunity to actually try a linear workflow.
And I have to say I am a convert now. There won’t be any serious projects done without applying a linear workflow.
