    Very nice! I found, from personal experience, that in China they can make just about anything.
  2. This is a great tutorial Chris! I, for one, am very appreciative of the time and effort you put into this. When I read the first posts, I wondered how in the heck I would build a bottle like this. You made it seem simple and logical. You really brought out the power of the sub-D tool. Thanks again!

    Hi Support, I suppose this newer release has some minor fixes. Could you please tell us a bit about it?

    V-Ray for FZ update?

    I'm really curious about this too. I read that for Max they have the equivalent of multi-light from Maxwell.

    Thanks AsOne.

    Andrew, Did you check to see if the bump map file was not saved as grayscale, or something other than RGB? That has given me grief before.

    Is anyone else experiencing frequent crashes in full shaded mode, especially when turning clipping planes on and off? Compared to the, the newest release seems unstable in shaded mode to me. I transferred to a different workstation, for instance, and some textures where disconnected, if I tried to go to shaded mode (not full shaded) it would immediately crash! Oops, forgot to mention I switched to a 4k monitor, so I'm running 9.0,4.2 in 4k. Maybe a video card issue?

    Very smart setz!

    formZ v9.0.4 Now available

    I hope this gets corrected. It leaves a bad impression on new or possible new users.
  11. Renaming clipping planes stops working after the file gets to be a certain size. This really needs attention. I have now many unnamed clipping planes that I have to activate in order to see which one it is! Windows 10. Latest Z version.

    Rmulley, Great Job! The glass looks so real. Did you use one of the predefined glass materials from Vray? If so, which one?

    Display Resolutions

    Sometimes I find myself having to model hundreds of cables with 1/8" radius. For things like that, it just doesn't make sense to have that much resolution. Besides, it inflates the file size unnecessarily.

    Thank you setz! I have been wishing for something like this for a long time.

    wip & recent renders

    Awesome renderings! I wish I got to do more of those. Love the glass facade on the third one. Still done in Maxwell?

    Hello Tech, There seems to be something wrong with the link to download for windows?

    key shortcuts stop working

    Yes, it has happened to me too. Annoying.

    Reverting to 8.6?

    Wow. It seems V9 is much more stable than 8.6 on Windows for sure. I can work all day on it without a single crash. Have you trashed your autodessys folder? That solved initial bugs for me.
  22. I am purchasing some models and they have a note that says to make sure your renderer supports vertex color. Could some one please let me know? Thank you.

    Can't use v9.0.1 layout

    This may just be a shot in the dark, but did any of you trash the autodessys folder prior to installing the final release of v 9.0.x? I had kept the autodessys folder from the last beta, and installed the final released of v. 9.0.x. without trashing that folder. I had many issues that seemed bizarre until I did just that. Once that folder was re-written, almost all of the problems went away. I hope this helps.
  24. FormZ Tech, I've been trying to get both of these effects to work on my renderings to no avail. I have successfully created materials that show displacement within Vray's material editor, but I can't seem to get displacement to show on the rendering. As far as caustics goes, I have tried and failed to make this show by using ripply Vray preset water and enabling caustics under render elements. Are both of these effects simply not yet enabled on this version of Vray for FormZ just like subsurface scatter materials? Can anyone shed some light on this please? I'd appreciate it.
  25. Thank you Andrew! This is great.
