Great! I'll try this tomorrow. Currently I am trying to render a scene with about 600 proxy trees using vrayscatter and it crashes. I have 12 GB of ram so it shouldn't be a ram issue. I'll see if this new build helps, but if not do you have any tips on how not to crash? I know it is the proxies because if I turn off the proxy layer then the scene renders fine.

This crashes can be depended on wrong Vray settings. Also if you are using 32 bit system, only 2gig of your memory can be used by Vray.

Did you try to use default VRayMaterial for scatter? May be you use standart normal bump texture, or old version of Color Correct or some things.

Do you mean for the material on the proxies? They are just vraymaterials. Do you have the DLO for the new install? I donwloaded it, but it doesn't find the max2010 folder on vista 64

You have 2.5.5 already.
Material on scatter.
What textures do you use inside vraymaterial?

I have a diffused and an opacity for the leaves and a diffused for the trunk. How do you apply materials to you vrayscatter element? I have been dragging and dropping my material onto the shape that represents the tree. Is this correct?

Just select scatter dummy and apply material.
Do you use color correct for diffuse?

I discovered lately, that Vrayscatter can crash max, if you have normalbump in your bump slot in material.
(full description:
2.5.5 demo for sp2 + sp2
More than one vrayscatter on single plane with two different materials. If any of the materials have normalbump -- max crashes.
Same scene, same vrayscatter settings, material without normalbump -- perfectly works.
Sometimes one object with normalbump don't cause crash)

Maybe this is the case?

Sorry for my english. :)

I do have several vrayscatters on the same plane so I'll check that out, thanks. I actually removed the vrayscatter.dlo today, because every so many saves MAX would crash and if I pick anything in the scene every so often it would crash too. When I removed the dlo MAX stopped crashing.


Return to “VRayScatter for 3ds max”
