This page provides information on the Presets dialog.



The V-Ray presets dialog is accessible via the Presets button on the System rollout, when the Advanced mode is displayed.

The presets dialog saves the various parameters of V-Ray into a text file which can be reloaded again quickly. Currently the presets are stored in a file called vray.cfg in the \plugcfg sub-folder of the 3ds Max root folder.

In the left part of the dialogue are listed all of the presets in the vray.cfg file. In the right part are listed all of V-Ray's roll-outs. You can select which roll-outs you want saved to or loaded from a preset.
