    Blender-Vray basic video tutorial

    Hi guys,

    I decided to capture a quick "howto" on how to use the VrayMaya demo version with Bdancer's script "vray for blender", in case you wanna give it a ride. English/Spanish versions available.

    Stuff required:
    Exporter's official site:
    http://blender.lugr.ru/

    Latest version of the script:
    http://blender.lugr.ru/files/vrayExport_0.9.3.py

    Testscene used in the tutorial:
    http://upload.blenderbg.com/cornellbox.blend.7z

    Vray's official site (to create the account):
    http://www.chaosgroup.com/

    Or get the demos directly from these links:
    32 bits:
    http://www.3dtechnics.org/support_vr...maya85_x86.exe

    64 bits:
    http://www.3dtechnics.org/support_vr...maya85_x64.exe

    Videos:
    English version:6 min 29 secs, 14 mb, windows media video:
    http://files.wildspad.com/afecelis/v...lender_eng.wmv

    Spanish version: 7 min 17 secs, 16mb, windows media video:
    http://files.wildspad.com/afecelis/v...lender_spa.wmv

    Hope to create another VT soon explaining basic material creation, lighting options, etc, right now I'm driving Andrey crazy with my emails and questions, trying to learn as much as I can about Vray!

    regards,
    Alvaro

    Caronte just published a nice little app that helps out doing the "2007 trick". I'm quoting his words here:
    Hi,
    While an updated VRay demo is out...
    I programmed a little utility to change the date automatically while VRay is working.
    http://files.wildspad.com/afecelis/v...les/toback.zip

    Put "toback.exe" on the same folder where vray.exe exists and instead vray.exe, choose toback.exe in the exporter script. That's all!

    Anybody can mirror this freeware proggie.
    cheers!
    Alvaro

    Actually 7z is a great format, much better then zip and rar.
    And Linux supports it quite well.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. About 7zip, it was Andrey'z pick for compression of his scene files, and yup, 7zip is well supported under Linux

    Thanks for pointing out the wrong link. It's fixed now

    Also, check Andrey's site for the latest version of his script. He just added support for DOF and Caustics:


    Download link:
    http://blender.lugr.ru/files/vrayExport_0.9.3.py

    regards,
    Alvaro

    PS. Vray just launched their new website and many things changed. One of the changes was to remove the demos but they say newer versions will be available by April the 20th. Meanwhile please use the direct links in the first post.

    arrrgghhh, dunno what's wrong with the links I post, one thing shows up in text and another underneath it in the hyperlink. It's been fixed above. Here's the link again:
    http://files.wildspad.com/afecelis/v...les/toback.zip

    regards,
    Alvaro

    ps. Probably with the new demos out you won't need to change the date back.

    hello
    did anybody tested the new version?
    Do you have experience on vista 64?
    I cannot make it work although the older version worked fine.
    now i get error message: Windows cannot find C:\Program...
    but I make the paths correctly during installation and in script.

    thank you for any help
