    Decals are not rendered

    I was pleased to read that in Vray 5 decals are to be rendered. Although I have activated the checkbox, no decal appears in the image. The online manual has no corresponding entry. Who can help me out? MacOS Mojave

    After contacting me again, Todd personally sent me the download link. The previous E-Mails did not reach me. Finally, it worked out well.

    Thank you for your repost. As mentioned: I did not find any E-Mail in my Spam or Junk folder. Alright: I will write another direct E-Mail to: support@engsw.com I am really curious about this software!

    Please welcome PowerCADD

    After an initial euphoria, a little disillusionment sets in: As I did not know this software until now (no idea how well known it is in the USA - I am based in Europe), I visited the developer's website. Afterwards I "ordered" the free demo, but the download link did not reach me. I then placed the "order" again and as nothing had yet returned, I contacted support by E-Mail. So far I have not received an answer. And there is nothing in the spam folder either... This could turn out to be a disaster. I hope Autodessys is backing the right horse?!

    V-Ray 5 for form•Z Beta now available

    Considering the circumstances, I am actually very satisfied with the development of v9 - especially with the ongoing development of V-Ray. On my iMac (Mojave), FormZ 9.2.0b1 (build A439) and V-Ray 5.0.0.6 (build 1603) are running. Since the beta licence is about to expire, I wonder what will happen next? Will there be another update for the beta? When will these new versions be available for «regular» release?

    I would like to take this opportunity to share with you that the beta of version 9.2 with the 5th update of Vray is running quite well. It is a pleasure to be able to follow these development steps. I work with iMac and MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave.

  11. When I use a «real» V-Ray material, the display in Shaded Work mode and in Full Shaded mode is not correct. You can see the example in the attached screenshot. It does not matter whether I use a predefined material that is delivered with Form.Z or create my own new one. As soon as a V-Ray render is started, the material is displayed correctly. I have this error in all versions from version 8 to version 9.1 and 9.2. My system: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019) 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB

    Incorrect representation of real V-Ray materials

    Okay. I have sent you the file by E-Mail. 😘

    Incorrect representation of real V-Ray materials

    Thank you Tech, for your reply. I am using MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave I am talking about a Vray material that comes with Form.Z in the standard V-Ray-Library. You may be able to see this in the screenshot. The same phenomenon also occurs when I use the beta of version 9.2 with the latest V-Ray.

    V-Ray 5 for form•Z Beta now available

    FZ 9.2 beta and Vray 5 downloaded and installed. I couldn't go into depth yet, but I played around a bit. So much in the first instance: The installation worked wonderfully right away. The two betas work prima vista well. The render is very fast. I'm so excited about this that I'd like to announce it and encourage other users to test it. iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019) 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 Mac OS 10.14.6 Mojave

    Tool Manager and Tool Palette oddities

    I have also known this problem for years. That's why I don't dare make adjustments to the layout so as not to destroy the existing order.

    Is there a shadow catcher in VRay?

    This is really very helpful!

  20. Hello Tech Will there actually be another statement from you on this topic at some point? I mean by that: What is the future of Form.Z? What are the strategies? I would still be very interested in this!

    Would you also like to share this opinion with us ... ?

    Interesting idea. I have already posted something similar here in this forum. However, I suggested a collaboration with the company Ashlar. From my point of view, the challenges there are similar:

    Why form•z is not popular any more:

    My contributions on the subject of UI have nothing at all to do with «product bashing». On the contrary: I have a deep commitment to Form.Z – and a deep concern. Have a look: I got to know this software in 1995 during my industrial design studies. I have been using it since then and it helps me earn my daily bread at my workplace. I am dependent on this software. That worries me a lot because I always fear that one day it will no longer exist. It is even more likely that I won't be able to buy a new iMac because it will only run the latest software versions And v9 is simply not yet suitable for daily work from my point of view. For example: As a long-time user, it is simply problematic for me if I don't trust myself to place palettes differently Because I never know whether they can still be found later. Can you imagine what that's like for someone who is evaluating the product? And then paired with a look that gives the feeling of having installed an old version... Besides, it is not only the question of the «aesthetic design» of the UI that makes a well-maintained software today. Take a look at how others do it: There you can see perspectives as movies with the upcoming implementations. There are regular tutorials on YouTube and in their own forums. There is a download section that explains exactly which build is up to date and which issues have been fixed and which are still in the pipeline. Personally, I am sad that «my» programme, in particular, cannot offer me a home, subjectively speaking.

    I have tried the export to TwinMotion/Unreal and actually find this option very interesting. But for me, the development of this plugin is first and foremost a sign of life from Form.Z - for that I am very grateful. But... and if you would please also pay attention to my contribution just above: I am a creator, a designer - and I work on average 8 hours a day at the computer and with your software. When I create something beautiful and functional, I also want my tools to be beautiful and functional, or to reflect these attributes. That is the alpha and omega of why design exists.
