This page offers a quick starting point on how to open a .vrscene and .vantage files in Chaos Vantage.

When loading a scene, if the assets (textures, proxies) are missing from their original paths or the scene folder, Chaos Vantage looks for them next to where the .vrscene file is in a folder that has one of the following names:

assets, maps, proxy, textures, vray_proxy
