  1. Oops, forgot include the link! Here it is: https://renderstorm.com/home/renderbladesupervalue/
  2. Question for anyone who knows: I found this render blade and wondered if it could be used for Vray for FormZ. This unit is actually suggested for Maxwell, and I found it from a link in Maxwell's render farm options. Since Vray for formZ works within formZ, I wonder if a machine like this could be used to render in Vray. More specifically, this render blade shows no graphic card, which to me, means that you cannot really open the model on that machine, and then send a command to render. Has anyone tried something like this before to use with Vray for formZ? I'd appreciate some insight. Thanks, Allan.

    Very nice!. What do you use for ambient lighting?

    Thanks Andrew. Yes, some of the materials are as selected by my client, not much choice. You're right, water would have added a nice touch. Rush job, haha, like most though. The lights are actually modeled fixtures with a very small plain light inside. BTW, it would be great if lights could be set by color temperature; like Maxwell's. You're rendering is awesome! Allan.

    VRAY - Huge Material Problem!

    Sorry to interrupt. I created the material using the vray editor. All resolved.

    VRAY - Huge Material Problem!

    I bit unrelated to your topic, but I wonder if anyone has used mirror as a v-ray material. There's no preset now for this material, and so far I've used polished chrome, but its reflections get a little blurry. Has anyone created a mirror material who could help me out? Thanks, Allan.

    Top Ten FormZ 9 list

    The best advice for Autodessys on the upcoming FormZ is to get rid of the bugs! My god, the program seems to be getting more and more buggy. Every day I run into new bugs it seems like. I know this probably isn't the place to vent, but today I found that if you're working using millimeters as units, and export to 3ds or dae, the resulting scale is off! Then to make matters worse, if you switch your units to inches, then most of your texture mapped objects' textures get over twice as big. It's getting harder and harder to work with formZ without it frustrating and stressing me out! Sorry to vent here but it's almost 1 am and it's taking me forever to export my model to sketchup in millimeters because of the aforementioned. Allan

    formZ models exchange site!

    I've uploaded some files for everyone's use. A couple of trees and a couple of cars. They come in handy as entourage for your renderings

    Ah, I see... That's too bad. I wish that as part of general ed, they would require everyone to take architecture and history of architecture starting in high school. I've dealt with so many clients who have no clue in the field, and yet they have the last word. Thanks for the explanation.

    Andrew, Looks nice, thank you for the advice. One question: Do you purposely fill the space with light to avoid lengthy rendering times?

    V-ray troubleshooting

    I'm having the same problems described by Andrew and Justin... I hope FormZ Tech. is paying attention to this thread. Allan
  14. Support, I have a large formZ file created on PC's. Although the file itself has no components in it, it does have some loaded libraries. When I try opening it on the Mac, formZ hangs. After removing the loaded libraries on the PC, it opens on the Mac. Very inconvenient when one tries to share files. Do you want me to send it over for you to analyze? Please let me know. Thanks, Allan.

    Vray renders textures inverted

    Huh! I stand corrected. It worked once, and then the material got corrupt again. Support, I hope you have a solution soon!
