  1. Need some advice on how to set up a V-Ray/FormZ v9 Workspace. Tried a number of ways but Interactive window keeps resizing & changing positions. Even tried to set up using sidecar on iPad, but interactive window constantly jumps back to main monitor (Apple Pro Display XDR). Wouldn't even mind setting up a 4 panel Multi Window with V-Ray Interactive window fixed in upper rt corner.

    Wanted: Form.Z Renderzone 5 or 6

    I can sell you this... I also have licenses for the latest version you want them also . I can speak to AutoDeSys about transfer... I am on a Mac & think licenses are for both? I also have all the manuals & installer disks.
  4. Did you send this into tech support. The only solution I came up with is to use Metal Accurate or Generic as Reflection with Simple Transparency. Made all lights Hard in case you wanted to cast shadows.Not a great solution but may work for you.

    Error writing JPEG file "logo.jpg" ?

    Do not know error code but if you are on a Mac generally if the Folder or file do not have permissions to write may be problem. Get info on jpg file or folder unlock then give permissions.,

    macOS Mojave

    Started an install in Mojave in my 2010 Mac Pro & discovered I need to replace my ATI Radeon HD5870 Video card with one that does metal on Apples suggested list (many have been discontinued & hard to find). Any members have any suggestions on card replacements? Considering Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 580,

    Component problems

    Jeff +1... I assume you are using user component libraries... I only use these & do all my editing out of the project in the User Component Folder. Yes links are lost to embedded components (they are suppose to be same link to user components... they are not). Need to even replace same named embedded component with external user component... most of the time you can not select the component in user folder until it is replaced in embedded... spoke to tech support for years about this... but am living with the component disconnect.

    menu palettes inactive

    1st in preferences set fez to defaults. If that does not work, Close fmz Go into user library, in preferences put com.formZ.formZ.plist in desktop. If that doesn't work you can also try putting autodessys folder on desktop.

    renaming components, better not!

    VERY SIMPLE. Components are an individual fmz file. I keep them in a folder always naming folder "project name" components in project file In folder I keep needed texture maps. This is much like the old symbols except symbols packaged individual fmz files. Main complaint I always had is that in Symbols you were able to edit material attributes for all globally. Components you cannot. I always have edited component files outside of project because user & embedded components links are never consistent... if you updated one the other should be updated... I find they are not the same. Reported this many times & wish fmz developers would fix this.

    That is why I ONLY make user components. Names can be changed in user component folder. You would have to replace the embedded components with the user component. I have never trusted embedded components since symbols were changed in 6.5 & not sure why they were not the programmed same in newer fmz versions.

    Components issues

    I have had continual issues (has been reported to support) where the User Components have lost their links to the embedded components. If you want to keep using user components the embedded components have to be replaced with the user component.
