    Vray Sun does not get animated

    Omg! I can't believe I didn't see that, that would have saved me a ton of work. Thank you!
  2. I think I may have read something related to this before. In essence, the Vray Sun is not linked to the Sun Position palette. It would be great if it somehow it could be. I am doing several renderings that show how the building shading design works over different times and dates, and I am having to manually change the Vray sun to match the sun position for every rendering. Very tedious.

    New material naming

    Agree, having it carry the material name carry to the material palette would be very handy.

    formZ 9

    Common ADS don't disappoint us. We need to keep up with the big boys of modeling and rendering.
  5. Count me in for Maxwell and Vray.

    Turn off the intersection snap?

    Lamp Shade

    I agree. Unless you're zoomed in, and you see the light bulb and the shade inside, I don't see the need to have the shade be translucent. You can fake the effect of the light going through it in V-ray for formZ. Even in Maxwell, where is very easy to make the SSS material, have the light inside, and have the light go through the shade, I still fake it. Why? Because the difference in making it as it would be in reality vs. the result of faking are so similar that is not worth the render time.

    Lamp Shade

    I have not tried SSS in V-ray yet, but I suspect it will slow down the rendering quite a bit. V-ray does come with SSS materials, but unless you're going to see the inside and outside of the lamp shade in detail, I don't see why one would need to use this. Again, if it's a glowing material, like glowing fabric you're after, my post above will give you that.

    Yes... I believe this happens because it's looking for intersections in 3D space. I use that snap very seldom, and when I do, I make sure I have very little geometry turned on. Otherwise, you're in for a lot of frustration.

    Awesome job! There's no beating Maxwell when it comes to quality and realism.

    Thank you! Good to know.

    Example Images

    One of the nicest images I've seen rendered so far. I wouldn't be able to do any better. : )

    Lamp Shade

    Andrew, I created the image below by using the emissive option of the Vray material. Applied a texture map from photoshop and a glow factor of 2. Maybe you can use a more convincing photoshoped glowing fabric, and maybe that will do?

    Layers AND sub layer system

    Hugo, I agree with Jsiggia. I group my layers for architectural purposes as you describe. That works great for me.
