Normal bump maps causing crash

Hi guys,
When I use a proxy that has a normal bump map in the bump slot VRay crashes. Once the normal bump map is removed everything renders as normal.

Yes, that is a VRay thing. Use the VrayNormalMap instead :)

the proxy renders fine on its own with the normal bump map. Its only once its in a vrayscatter object that it crashes.

+ 1 ... i've experienced that now...
Please fix that, if we'd have to change our material libray with a vraynormalbump... Impossible...
Thanks

It is Vray bug. Please ask Vlado on http://www.chaosgroup.com to fix it. It is working unstable that is why Chaosgroup add vraynormalbump.
I think it is easy to write simple script to convert normalbump to vraynormalbump or use Multiconverter
