Improvements & bugfixes

  • The V-Ray scene (.vrscene) export no longer requires a license
  • The Tri-Planar texture viewport appearance is improved
  • The viewport appearance of ray-traced textures like V-Ray Dirt is improved
  • The aspect ratio of bitmap textures is preserved when viewport baking is performed whenever possible
  • ImageQuality argument introduced in vrayTexturePreviewSettings command. A lower value can reduce the Rhino project file size by applying image compression
  • Objects using one of Rhino’s geometry modifiers (like Edge Softening, Thickening, or Displacement) are no longer misplaced when rendered (applies to Rhino 8.6 and later)
  • An issue preventing the import of specific materials when pasting is resolved
  • There is no longer a freeze in projects containing Scatter with a high preview instance count
  • There is no longer a crash when opening a project where an Enmesh object was deleted, while the V-Ray plugin was not loaded
  • Adding Scatter to an object that has already been added as a guest in another Scatter no longer leads to a crash
  • A typo in the Mesh Light properties in Rhino 8 is fixed
  • V-Ray GPU: System Memory for Textures implemented. It lowers the GPU memory usage significantly by offloading textures to system memory with little impact on performance
  • V-Ray GPU: There is no longer a crash when starting a render, while the CUDA devices selection specified in the Asset Editor differs from the global one (defined by the GPU Device Selection tool and stored in the VRAY_GPU_PLATFORMS environment variable)
  • V-Ray GPU: An issue preventing the material Raytrace Properties from working correctly is resolved
  • A warning is logged instead of an error when the V-Ray UI loses connection to the host application
  • The proper function of the V-Ray UI is no longer prevented by specific system proxy configurations
