    mensch.mueller reacted to Donald Wardlaw in The formz change I would most like to see.   
    Paste replaces selected object.
    I realize this is a tradition in formz, but it causes me to lose more time than just about anything.  The reason is that it is very easy to inadvertently select an object, move the scene so that it is out of view, and then paste an object I want to paste.  Then later I notice that some object I've modeled is not longer there.  Happens to me a lot.
    In my opinion, this behavior should be a simple preference that can be on or off.
    Thanks,
    Donald

    mensch.mueller reacted to nano in VRay fur - save to preset option   
    Can I just put in a request for a functional way to save a VRay fur setting to a preset that can be re loaded or applied to objects in the next release or update?
    I'm finding directly editing the object attributes for the fur settings a pain - especially when you are doing test renders that require minor situational alterations to numerous objects. It's not really a time saving work around as an alternative in changing the main setting in detail and then reapplying them individually.
    It would be very good to be able to do this directly from the object attributes dialog box so you can edit one object and then more quickly reapply them across a range.
    Thanks - that is all...

    mensch.mueller reacted to AHDD Designer in Request for V-Ray Tutorial or Example Scene   
    Now that I have made several attempts to use the V-Ray plugin with Form.Z successfully, I'm still a bit disillusioned: There are too many settings, the light and the surfaces don't come (or only by chance) as intended.
    If I am looking for instructions on the internet, the tutorials are mostly based on other programs, such as SketchUp or the native V-Ray program. But the settings within Form.Z seem to be very different to me - or don't work properly...
    Does anyone know of a tutorial on YouTube that explains the processes in interior design? Or could someone even create one (autodessys ?). Could someone at least share or upload a Form.Z sample scene that contains the most important camera, material, environment and lighting settings?
    Thank you very much!
    Attached are some renders, that illustrate my skills so far:

    mensch.mueller got a reaction from rtaransky in form•Z 8.6 Update Released   
    Latest is extremely unstable and even trying to rotate something results in a crash.
    Downloaded it for evaluation version of Vray. Thought of buying Vray, but if I can´t work with Formz, then I won´t buy it!
    even trying to rotate a tiny part resulted in a crash!

    Probably switch back to 8.5.7.

    mensch.mueller got a reaction from Brantheat in Erratic Behaviour of VRAY Material Options   
    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

    Hi,
    I second @setz explanations! Don´t separate them!
    The extend tool is one of my favorite tools in FormZ, it is brilliant and a huge timesaver (extend to arbitrary spaced and rotated Plane!)!
    Dynamic options would be welcome, like @setz explained(but I don´t understand @setz explanations about this topic  ) !

    Edit:
    Even in normal RenderZone mode VRay doesn´t care about intensity(Helligkeit) settings of the sun!
    Edit:
    Oh, now switching FormZ-sun to Vray seemed to changed the appearance of the image! Strange, didn´t work yesterday! So -> intensity is working(now)(for a FormZ sun converted to Vray)
     
    But after inserting Vray-sun to scene with same orientation, and deactivating all the other lights, I cannot modify Vray-sun´s intensity (always same appearance!)!

    mensch.mueller got a reaction from Martin Malinski in News on Vray   
    Hi
     
    Just saw news on cgchannel on topic Vray:
    and just not seeable 5sec from beginning:
    http://www.cgchannel.com/2015/08/eye-candy-the-2015-v-ray-showreel/
     

     
    I´m a long time user beginning with 2.9 and last end of 2013 upgrading to FormZ 7 and that is where trouble begins, but this is another point.
    I heard a long time that its coming and i never believed it, especially after looking at the documentation of Formz 7 SDK....
    But now things just seemed to have changed and FormZ SDK is out of Beta(this must have happened in the last weeks).
     
    Cheers
