Setting up VRay Renderer?

Post by WolfsongCG »

Hi all,

So, I've downloaded "ts76_Original", which includes the Vray Renderer.

I installed TS. Then installed the VRay to the same folder. However, I can't figure out how to setup TS to use it as its offline renderer. I've gone through every options menu I can find, but nothing about configuring/setting up the offline renderer. It doesn't show up in the drop-down either.

Is there some special set of steps I have to follow?

I'm gonna put real effort into learning this software, but want to be able to render with it as well.

Thanks for any help!

Open trueSpace, Install/Load Vray from the Package Manager. The icon looks like a plug being plugged in.

You should also close trueSpace and then reopen it after Installing/Loading a Workspace plugin
Vray installs two documents to the main directory that you can read

Thanks for the response!

So, I followed your steps, clicked on the "plug" icon, and TS couldn't find any files to open. It's looking for .tsx files, and there's none in any of the locations VRay created/installed to.

Hmm.

Do you have the VRay ReadMe.rtf file where you installed trueSpace 7.61?
There should also be a VRay.pdf file

Looks like you are trying install the VRay plugin (Vray_ts.rsx) from Model
You should install it from Workspace

Open the Vray_ts.rsx file
Right Click to Load
Close trueSpace to complete the process

Open the Workspace's Material Editor and select the Vray Material Editor from the Active Editor's combo control
Note: You may have to Right click the Active Editor attribute and select Reset to get the Vray Material Editor to show in the combo control
