Plugin List


Below is a list of known plugins. If a plugin is missing, feel free to add it to this page by submitting a pull request with all of the required information.


Animation Plugin

ThatRedox · GitHub Repository · Latest build from master

This plugin adds functionality to render an animation without completely reloading the scene on every frame. It adds a Keyframe Editor tab, which allows creation and editing keyframes and an option to load JSON files from a folder.

The current release of the plugin functions normally when used with the Stable release or the Stable snapshot release of Chunky; however, there are glitches that occur when it is used with the Snapshot release of Chunky.


AOV Plugin

ThatRedox · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds Arbitrary Output Variable renderers to Chunky. The renderers added are listed below.

  • Albedo

  • Normal

  • Ambient Occlusion

  • Depth Buffer


Bloom Plugin

aTom3333 · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds a bloom post-processing filter to Chunky.

Installation

The 0.2.1 release of the plugin requires the Stable release or the Stable snapshot release of Chunky, while the 0.3.0 release of the plugin requires the Snapshot release of Chunky.


BVH Plugin

aTom3333 · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds an additional BVH to Chunky.

  • PACKED_SAH_MA: This BVH implementation is based on the SAH_MA implementation, and uses three to four times less memory than SAH_MA does, while also being slightly faster.

ChunkyCL Plugin

ThatRedox · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds a work-in-progress OpenCL ray tracer to Chunky. Not all blocks and features are supported.

Experimental

This plugin is in early beta state and does not support all Chunky features yet. Additionally, while this plugin is still available for download, as of now, it is not being actively supported or developed.

Renderer switching in Chunky 2.4.0 or later

As of Chunky 2.4.0, renderer switching is supported. The ChunkyCLRenderer of the ChunkyCL plugin cannot yet be used in conjunction with the Denoising Plugin, although loading both plugins concurrently does not cause an exception anymore.

Plugins which have not yet been updated to support the new addRenderer API feature (such as the Ambient Occlusion Plugin and Depth Buffer Plugin) are still supported and are added with the name of PluginRenderer.


Denoising Plugin

leMaik · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds AI denoiser functionality using Intel Open Image Denoise. It is very effective at reducing noise and can be used to effectively cut render times greatly.

Installation

  • Step 1: Download the correct release of the plugin from the GitHub repository for the version of Chunky on which you want the denoiser to run, and install it according to the plugin installation instructions.
Version Plugin Release Plugin File
Chunky 2.4+ v0.4.0 chunky-denoiser.jar
Chunky 2.0-2.3 v0.3.2 chunky-denoiser-chunky2.jar
Chunky 1 v0.3.2 chunky-denoiser-chunky1.jar
  • Step 2: Download the Precompiled Intel Open Image Denoise Binary Packages for your OS. (for example, on Windows, it would be oidn-1.4.3.x64.vc14.windows.zip.)

  • Step 3: Extract the OIDN ZIP file to a location on your computer, such as C:\Program Files\oidn-1.4.1.x64.vc14.windows.

  • Step 4: Launch Chunky.

  • Step 5: Open the Denoiser tab in the left control panel.

  • Step 6: Click the ... button, and then browse for oidnDenoise.exe, which is located in the bin folder of the extracted OIDN ZIP file.


Discord Rich Presence

leMaik · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds Discord rich presence integration to Chunky.

Installation

  • Step 1: Download the correct release of the plugin from the GitHub repository for the version of Chunky on which you want the plugin to run, and install it according to the plugin installation instructions. Make sure that the plugin is last in the list of plugins selected to be loaded to avoid problems.
Version Plugin Release
Chunky 2.4+ v1.1.0
Chunky 2.0-2.3 v1.0.0
  • Step 2: Launch Chunky and render normally.

Editor Plugin

NotStirred · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds world editing functionality that is intended to replace the current editing functionality that is native to Chunky.


Excel Plugin

aTom3333 · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds an ODS Output mode to Chunky so that an "image viewer" like Excel can view the render.


JPEGXL Plugin

aTom3333 · GitHub Repository

This plugin adds a JPEG-XL Output mode to Chunky.

Installation

This plugin does not have any releases, and must be built from source. Follow the instructions on the GitHub repository.


Magick Export Plugin

ShirleyNekoDev · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin is a work-in-progress plugin that adds more render Output modes, such as OpenEXR and PNG16, using ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick.


Octree Plugin

aTom3333 · GitHub Repository · Releases

This plugin adds more octree implementations with a range of uses and benefits. See the GitHub repository for more information and on the different octree implementations and their uses. Notable implementations include those listed below.

  • Disk Implementation: This implementation caches the octree to disk. It is extremely slow compared to other octree implementations, but it bypasses memory limits when loading large chunk selections.

  • Garbage-collected Implementation: This implementation is generally faster during octree creation and octree loading. The peak memory usage of this implementation is higher, however.

  • Dictionary Implementation: This implementation uses less memory than PACKED does. It is slightly slower while rendering and loading, however.

  • Small DAG Implementation: This implementation uses even less memory than DICTIONARY does. It is slightly slower while rendering and loading, however.

One more option is available but is not listed here. Further information is located in the GitHub repository.
