[Q] Difference between Vray versions?

Postby Roo Evans » Thu Dec 03, 2015 1:34 pm

Best,

Chaosgroup recently released a new version of Vray 2.0, they proudly state to have support for Skatter.
Would you mind sharing which type of support, after updating I notice no difference.. (I hoped Chaosgroup would've offered quicker parsing times for Skatter)

Thanks in advance!

The only difference is that now they natively support Skatter. Before that, Skatter had to modify Vray's code on the fly to make it work. But the results are the same.

Vray 3.0 is supposed to bring better parsing time. I really hope so, because for now it's terrible...

Thanks for the info, I heard so too, let's keep our thumbs up! And better implementation of proxies too, because it's quite archaïc right now..

I've been out of the loop for a while. I am thinking about loading up the skatter public release. However, if vray is still having crazy parsing times, not sure that I am as interested. So my question - has there been any improvement, or is it still a matter of waiting for the vray 3.0 rebuild for SU?
Until then, I'll just continue using Blender for my particle needs.
