Demo can't save and open files with VrayScatter, scattering engine has some small differents and not supported animation of parameters.

I'm trying to test out the demo but not having much luck. I can assign a proxy and a distribution object but when I try to render it crashes everytime, and crashes max. I'm using 2008 64 bit, and Vray SP3 beta (I saw that you support SP3, but maybe that's the problem?)

Also, if I change the count the preview doesn't change accordingly. For example it defaults to 1000 but if I have only 50 proxies then maybe the preview should be adjusted automatically to be no more than the actual count? It is a pain to have to adjust both everytime when you are not using more than 1000 proxies.

Thanks

Just a quick note about that crash: I tried the demo on another machine running a slightly older build od SP3 and it worked okay. I think the SP3 build from yesterday may be causing a crash with VrayScatter.

EDIT: Using a build from Dec 30 there is no crash, but the last week or so of builds for sure crash when trying to render with the demo.

Yes we know that VrayScatter now not working with last SP3 builds. We will fix it soon. Not so easy to test and make updates for daily builds of Vray

Dont use VrayScater for only 50 proxies - its designed for millions :D
In full version (with opened animation of parameters functionality) you can try to connect "count" and "preview count" by "wire parameters"


Return to “VRayScatter for 3ds max”
