    Anyone find Ambient Occlusion in Twinmotion?

    Thanks, Jean-Luc! I just completed my first building material product animation using TM, and I must say it was a very good experience. I think I have convinced my team that rendering days are over.

    Hi Support, Good news! I reported the animation with RTX broken last build, but I just tried it with a new file in this build and it generated a .fan and an .avi just fine! Woo-hoo animation gains!

    I think it's here at the bottom of this drop down dialog under sun location.

    cobrien, I "think" it is only Vray that actually has to have a signal in order to launch and run. Contact support perhaps for checking out VRay license. Also, main thing... sometimes I close and re-launch so fast for some reason the Vray won't load. Usually, this is not an issue, but recently I had one get by me and I started working on my file with Vray unloaded. Needless to say, I lost a little work going back to the .fzb. One time an .fzb saved my rear end. Just be careful running Z without a VRay license or make sure it's loaded before working. Standard cautious procedure, I suspect.

    Only one oblique to add to that Rob, I noticed that during the tech webinar for Unreal 5, using Lumen for real time global illumination, they outright stated that they were not even trying to make the new real-time ray tracing available for VR. The dev said that they are just now able to ray trace one frame rate at passable speeds, 2 eyes is so far out it's not even being attempted. That's not to say AR/VR are not going to be viable down the road without real-time raytracing, but that's how far we are away from the hardware being ready. I'm not trying to do that now, so I'm going with the NVidia side, betting since it will always be less costly. Vray has a competitive product starting out meant to be a competitor to TM. I suspect we'll see this thing being a beast in a ring of other real-time choices not too far down the road. Ramble over

    Animation looked to be rendering fine and quickly but then fan file was corrupt. I reported to support and sent in all the files.

    Ok, I just benched a real render file from yesterday. formZ 9.1 with VRay cpu only (i never got hardware to help at all) 20 cores 38:58. formZ 9.2 with VRay5 and RTX 2070: 13:05. I know this isn't the same tech to compare, but it is the first comparison of what time it will save me because those times are just great. Justin, your rig must totally destroy renders now. Is my increase because I used a dome light in my scene (I changed nothing) or just because of the RTX processor? Both? Anyone know this yet?

    Hi cobrien, thanks for saving me, of course ADS removed the temporary link for all the legal reasons, of course. I think my companies e-mail sorter modified the original e-mail links and destroyed them to protect me from evil. I got it tho.😁

    Thanks cobrien, those download links were of course what I needed. All's well now. I had the license e-mail from chaos, so that was already solved.

    Hey guys help, I got the chaos e-mail that says to download, I click and enter my chaos password, takes me to Vray for all sorts of apps, but not formZ, even after rooting around. I didn't get anything else regarding a 9.2 formz link to download a new formz app. How does the install work this time?

    Yes, R2 is correct hidden line allows vector options, not shaded.

    Not sure but try Export Image right below Export and also might need Hidden Line.
