I am trying to test V-Ray, but I cannot open any of my existing files with FormZ 8.6. They all work fine in 8.5.7.  They all crash 8.6 upon opening.  I don't have time to rebuild entire, complex models just to test and learn V-Ray.  Will the release of V-Ray coincide with the release of a stable and non-beta FormZ release?

 

1. With a blank file I could not get the V-Ray sun to follow the Sun settings.  Shadows were on and were showing, but would not change with time/date.  The FormZ sun works properly and the shadows move with time of day or date changes.

 

2. The icon second to the left in the lower right corner of the V-Ray Render window crashed the program every time I click it.  I don't know what the icon does.

 

3.  Could we get a PDF file that labels that explains what the icons in the V-Ray Render window do?  Similar to the Quick start guide already released.

 

4.  The webinar showed a preview of saved views to the left of the Render window.  How do I view this panel?

 

5.  It would be great for the release to have the tools/icon names available upon mouse hover.  Especially for us new to V-Ray.

There is a new build that should fix that crash with old models - I had that problem but was fixed with Build 9985 - send errors to vray@formz.com 

1. Not sure haven't tried...

2. Are you talking about the colour bars below the render image - that works for me fine...

3. Agreed - 

4. When you have  render? - you must have saved the result.

5. The tool display text appears for me on 'hover' - 

 

But I agree that this is a unique version of Vray that is surprisingly well done and super easy - even to RenderZone and the results and speed - much better!  Vray has been around for a while and is still one of the best, it is option to RenderZone and to Maxwell that offers a no compromises solution ( arguably better ) and there is a lot of work to learn the subtleies but it light years ahead of what RenderZone offered ( now dead in the water ).

Lets' get the product debugged and released and then documented and get heaps of new users to start using it and see the results.

 

For what it's worth.
