I've been using vray for some weeks now. I have to finish a project in two weeks, but lately I can't render anymore. I always get this message: "We have encountered error(s) while trying to render. Please check the error log for more details".
I looked this up on the internet, and people get this message when they are trying to render files that are to big.. but my file isn't that big? It's 35 mb. I haven't even added special materials or something.
It started when I added some modifications to my models, so it must be this problem. Do you know how I can resolve this? There must be a way if I see all the magnificent renders other people do.
I'm using the latest sketchup version.
Here is a download link to my sketchup file, maybe someone can see what's wrong? I've tried just painting everything white, so the textures can't be the problem I think?
I have also included a render .jpg from a while back when I was still able to render.
Test your file with these solutions i made these render from a scene
1) save file, and restart SU again
2) purged unused materials in de Vray material editor
3) start render again
See no prolem at all, so you should render also this way
I saw that render as a .vri file was still on, turned that off again and I'm able to render again.
So I'm not able to use materials from vray? When I apply a material now the rendering stops working again, so that means no vray materials for me?
I'm using the material pack from the official website (http://www.vray.com/free_vray_tools/vis ... ndex.shtml)
Thank you for your help.
unfortunately, that's an old set of materials. The way materials are defined has changed in the current version of vfsu, and some of those old one will not work. You can get materials from the actual official website of vray for sketchup: http://chaosgroup.com (registration required)

I get that message a lot. I found a few things to do to get rendering again.
Under the VRay plugins menu there is a help section. In the help section there is a debugging option. in that there is a clear material cache option. That sometimes works. The other option in that menu also help but will remove all textures from the VRay material box. So you will have to reload them all, if you still get problems; load one material at a time and render after each. this should help you find the problem. Also purge the unused items and save close and reopen can sort it out as well.
Hope it helps
Thought I'd share some final renders for the project.. here you go:
I know it doesn't look that realistic, but it would have been too much work too separate my models so I could add special materials etc..
Thanks for the help guys.
yeah, vray.com is not the official website what so ever. You'll notice, at the top of their website (and I believe on every page) there is a notice that says the following: "V-Ray is a trademark of Chaos Software Ltd. The official source of information on V-Ray is chaosgroup.com. This site is not affiliated with chaosgroup.com." If you go to the chaosgroup website, there are materials available for download there, which are official materials.
