    Projector lights

    Thanks Justin & Allan. Adding the logo file as the texture works perfectly, I don't know how I was messing it up the other day!

    Projector lights

    Thanks Justin, I did try that but without any luck. I'll have another play with it. I'm trying to simulate a gobo light projecting over an exhibition stand

    Projector lights

    Hello, I need to show a logo projected across a few objects in a model I'm working on & can't work out how to do it with v-ray. In renderzone there is the 'projector' light type, is there a similar option in v-ray I'm missing? Cheers.

    Thanks John & Justin. The offline licensing option is good to know, that will come in handy in the future.

    Hello, is it correct that FZ & V-ray need to contact the mothership everytime they are opened? I'm about to spend a couple of days working from a clients office & don't really want to connect to their network.

    Graphics Cards

    Hello, I think my graphics card has packed it in. What should I be looking for when searching for a new one, will a card advertised as suitable for gaming be suitable for FZ & V-Ray? Cheers.

    Mesh lights

    Thanks Justin, I haven't had much of a play with emitter lights yet but I will. Other than the little box I've been enjoying mesh lights, it's one of the few things that doesn't take me longer to do than v6!

    Mesh lights

    Hi Justin, I do sometimes hide them but I like to keep them visible so they move with the objects they are associated with. I've just been working on a model that has a counter with a led strip light around the base (mesh light). I like to keep the light visible so when I move the counter it goes with it. For some reason when I created the mesh light it put the little box with x in it 9m in front of the light & 3m higher. If you select the mesh light & zoom to selection it zoom's to the little box rather than the light.

    Mesh lights

    Hello, Does anyone know if you can get rid of the little boxes that accompany v-ray mesh lights? Or at least have them centered to the mesh light? I'm forever grabbing them when selecting other things & accidently moving lights around. You also zoom to them rather than the light when you zoom to selected object.

    Walkthrough

    Thanks John. I didn't realise there was an Animation Manual, I couldn't find it on the formz website but have now found the link within FZ!

    Walkthrough

    Hello, Can anyone point me in the right direction to find info on making animated walkthroughs in v9? I guess im after a step by step sort of thing, I'm not having much luck with the manual. Thanks.

    Point lights

    Thanks for taking the time John. I haven't had much of a play around with plane lights but I'll give them a go. What do you mean by 'using the translation tools (not the light controls)'? You render looks really great!

    Point lights

    Hello, Support got back to me re Point lights & the intensity needs to be greatly increased, to 1000 or more! It then shows up as normal. Seems a bit weird to me that the intensity slider goes from 0-100 but you need to type in 1000 or more to have any effect. The Cone light slider I find annoying the opposite way, it goes from 0-100 but you need to make adjustments in 0.1 increments or your whole scene gets blown out. Mine is typically set between 0.8 & 1.5.

    Reflections

    Thanks Justin, works a treat. I thought I'd tried that but I mustn't have been increasing it enough. I'm in Australia & it's for one of the few shows that are going ahead at this stage. We're doing well with Covid but our premiers have a habit of shutting the state borders with little notice, which means no one wants to plan ahead to far.

    Reflections

    Hello, I'm hoping someone can help with reflections in v-ray? In the first image below I've been trying to get the wall graphics & furniture to reflect off the floor. The Material Parameters palette open to the right is for the floor material & I have the reflections slider set to max. The 3 small circles are downlights reflecting & the larger circle is a sphere light reflecting, but not the walls or furniture. The bottom image is v6.5 & shows the type of reflection I'm after. Any ideas?
