    Render animation in vray?

    Hey Nano Thanks for the information and sample animation! I would really like to be able to achieve something like that And apart from not able to generate animations, I now have problems with Vray material options and Vray Fur in latest 3.6.1. I probably will downgrade to Vray from January.... I will really missing the new preset system for Vray Fur. That really makes things easier in the beginning. Working a lot with fur, and with different settings, I can render out pretty complex surface textures(with Material_Id, Depth_map and Norma_map) . And to this topic(working a lot with fur): It would be great if we can extract the fur settings(or inspect it), of an object! via Attributes Copy Tool! Edit: Found out that this now works in Vray 3.6.1 and FormZ 8.6.2(Attribute Copy Tool). Great! And I can now inspect Vray Fur attributes! That is new! That wasn´t possible in my old Vray. Hope they vanish the remaining bugs soon! Good luck for your more complex project! Looking forward to your samples! Cheers Michael Btw. It would be great, if AutoDesSys opens up a central official post in this forum, with information(new version, change log, plans) of Vray, like they done in FormZ discussion...

    Erratic Behaviour of VRAY Material Options

    After a few hours trying to get something out... All the (three) materials are set as: -visible to camera -visible to Reflection/Refraction -Affect Alpha -> Black Alpha(-1) It gives totally different render results before(pre) and after opening(after) the scene ! So there seemed to be something totally wrong with VRAY(3.6.1 Build 1191 May 16) on FormZ 8,6.2 (build 10099) on OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks on my MacBook Pro 15 Retina 2014.... Cheers Michael Kottel 4-2.fmz.zip

    Erratic Behaviour of VRAY Material Options

    More Edits: Bluish light comes from a SunLight, but I never reset scene, strange! Edit: It seemed that to get same results as the old upper plane, I have to uncheck -> Visible To Camera! But results are really inconsistent. Are there any changes made to the materials, and how they are changed?

    Erratic Behaviour of VRAY Material Options

    I can´t edit text of last post! so: Edit: after reopening the scene, it even gets a blue tint! (last picture). 2nd Edit: Top plane is made with an older version of VRAY, and it seemed that Material Options - are different? or - not saved properly or - different interpreted

    Render animation in vray?

    Hi Nano, It seemed that you are on a newer system than me(OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks). Perhaps my problems are related to Mavericks?
  6. Hi, With latest 3.6.1 (on OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks) I get rather inconsistent results. Scene materials are all setup as: Material Options -> Affect Alpha -> Black Alpha (-1). 3 planes with 3 different materials(they are even the same, copied materials (2 of them with a different Material_ID color)). And even after saving and reopening scene, rendering is different! Cheers Michael

    Render animation in vray?

    Hi Justin Montoya, Thanks for your help. But I was already on the lowest Vray-setting. Normal Render-time was under 5 seconds. I even tried your advice with Time Limit, but with no success. I waited 8 minutes and then had to kill FormZ... Rendering animation doesn´t work on OSX(at least for me)! Cheers Michael

    Render animation in vray?

    Hi @Justin Montoya Just to be clear, you are on Windows, it seems? I´m on OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks and I´m trying to get some animation out with Quicktime(whatever format, I tried all), but it stuck at first (grey)frame, and can´t even stop it(command + . or esc)! Cheers Edit: It works with Renderzone, but after switching to Vray, it seemed to generate first frame(gry) and then stuck!!

    Render animation in vray?

    When does this eventually work? I tried that out with latest(3.6.1 May 16 2018) with no result(error with using fan, stop at frame 1, grey image, with output to quicktime)! And it would be really helpful, to see version of Vray at download area, with release notes or change log! Cheers

    form•Z 8.6 Update Released

    Hi @pkcn, There seemed to be a newer Vray (3.6.1 from May 16) in the Vray downloads. It is only working with latest 8.6.2. Some things are improved, but unfortunately not proxies! Edit. It would be great, if newer versions of Vray would be announced in forum! Cheers
  12. Had this in the beginning too, but it then regenerated OSX 10.9.5 FormZ 8.6.0.3

    Interior rendering settings for Vray

    Hi Tim, perhaps increase the intensity of the dome light? That worked for me! -> more than 1, begin with perhaps 1,5! And then adjust... Michael

    Interior rendering settings for Vray

    Hi Tim Garner As far as I know you had to create a Vray Dome Light to do that! You can make it invisible(Checkmark Invisible), and you can choose what will be affected(Diffuse, Specular, Reflections...) Normally they are .exr files. And normally they are either cube or spherical maps. The thing with environment tab of Vray is you can choose Enviroment Overrides for GI Skylight, but you can't choose sperical or cubic like in Background. Today I also experienced that spin of background texture doesn´t work(if you want to synchronize the same image for Dome Light with Background). Perhaps there are people with more insight than me Good Luck Michael
