There was an issue with an earlier version of the beta installer that could leave some permissions set wrong on OS X. There is a folder in your home directory called /.ChaosGroup. Its a hidden folder (hence the dot at the beginning). This folder may now have the wrong permissions assigned to it.

Here is how to fix this:

First you  need to be able to see hidden files in the finder. This is off by default on OS X just to keep things simple to the OS X user.
• Open Terminal found in Finder > Applications > Utilities.
• In Terminal, paste the following: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
• Press return.
• Hold the 'Option/alt' key, then right click on the Finder icon in the dock and select Relaunch.

To fix the permissions:

- In the Finder, navigate to your home folder and you will see the .ChaosGroup folder.
- Select this folder.
- Select get Get Info from the File menu (or right click and select Get Info).
- In the info window, click the lock icon in the lower right to unlock the interface and type your password.
- Make sure that the Ownership of the folder which is the top line of permissions has your user name (indicated with “Me”) and the permissions  are set to Read and Write.
- Click on the gear at he bottom of the window and select "Apply To enclosed items” and select OK.
- You can now try the license serve again, but you may need to re-instal it (its located in /Applications/formz 8/plugins/V-Ray for formZ/vrlservice_osx_4.4.1.bin).

If you no longer wish to see hidden files.  You can repeat the process above, just change the defaults line:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO

Hi There

 

A question for the vray testers:

 

I am wondering how it works with mapped textures (map texture): Is it possible to map a texture in formz and render it in vray?

 

By the way: Do I need to create a new material for every image i want to put on the wall?

 

Thanks

i've followed your instructions, but still cannot install with latest vray installer (downladed right now).

 

i'm getting a "ERROR: Unable to obtain temporary file for uninstall log of V-Ray Online License Server" at a certain point during installation and it stops there, see screenshot.

I have rendered a project mapped entirely in FormZ in V-Ray.  Seems to work fine.  I ended up with a mix of stock FormZ materials, my own texture maps, and V-Ray materials.  All rendered just fine.

When you get this error, just click the "Ignore" button in the lower left corner and it should complete the installation properly!

hello,

 

I have  basic questions. I've never used Vray at all. but I am tired of the slowness (but great quality ) of Maxwell. Also I find the materials in Maxwell very complicated to create.

 

1.) So, is Vray 'faster' than Maxwell for a somewhat comparable result?

 

2.) With a Vray plugin, can i expect to do all modelling and lighting in FormZ and get everything translated, or will I have to learn Vray?

 

Thanks-

 

Peter

Peter, 

 

The v-ray plugin is integrated quite nicely with formZ, so it kinda works right "out of the box".  Most formZ materials will translate into formZ without an issue, and some of the lights will.  But to really get into the power of v-ray, it would be best to explore some of it's more profound features.  Check out the webinar replay on youtube:
