    dpwr reacted to Smarttec in V-Ray 5 for form•Z Beta now available   
    All the speed improvements are coming from GPU advancements from NVIDIA and the amazing new RTX 2070+  and particularly 3xxx series as VRAY only supports this path so far.
    Apple has gone down the 'Metal' path and implemented some amazing results from their new Apple M1 series CPU/GPU with Neural Engine and they are fast ( very fast ) but so far only only supported by Redshift & Octane and NOT VRAY - hope that changes. Oh - and the other issue is that Apple also requires you to use Mac OS11.2+ ( Big Sur )
    Let's hope we see Vray supporting Apple 'Metal' soon.

    Incase someone else is having the same problem
    It's the Saturation slider in the Global Illumination section of V-Ray Settings. It's set to 1 by default

    Hi Joe,
    You will find funny that I recall writing that post. Lot of folks don't know that support was a room full of people on the phone all day and solving forum posts back then...
    And I'm sure I'll recall little about the details of doing that one. I recall it was an ice cream cone in that instance.
    I sure hope you don't have to go through all that to map your module. You might want to send me your files or some part of them so this can be figured out. I suspect you'll need some good UV's or even a dedicated app if you are going to be serious about this.

    dpwr reacted to ¢hris £und in MIMI updated :: Sort of   
    As it currently Stands, no.  The new API is based on python, not FSL, which is what MIMI is written in.  ADS is working on real easing the new API and documentation. Once I have the documentation, I will get to work on it.  While I have been able to figure some things out without the documentation, not totally. As, everything figured so far is from their examples.
    Am also wondering at this point, to what the changes are in the C/C++ API are.  from what I can see, 9 doesn’t load 8.5.6 plugins either. Which is interesting. Could be something simple, and not significant.  Can’t help but wonder though. 
     
    thanks for the props on MIMI, it is appreciated.  I do intend on making it more useful as well.   Such as, setting a base material  so that all imported maps share its settings but the map itself.  Other shaders, not just renderzone.  Open to suggestions as well. 
     
    cheers!

    Hi, everyone. I wanted to say thank you and that this thread is excellent! Thank you for the tutorials and discussion. I'm looking forward to watching them and experimenting with this.
    I've been away from FormZ for (more than) a few weeks as designing events for 30,000 to 100,000 people has been a little flat.
