I am trying to find out when support for multiple cameras with different aspect ratios will be implemented in batch render for sketchup. Batch render is virtually worthless without it.

Grey haze around face me component (transparent PNG)

Hi all, I'm trying to make a face-me component in SketchUp which will render in VRay. Below are two screenshots of the plant in Photoshop, with a dark grey background. As you can see there's no visible grey haze - I was very careful to clean it up as neatly as I could. Below that is a screenshot of the VFB (and SU) which clearly shows a grey haze around the plants. This is really noticeable over distance, which is an issue as they're supposed to be filling in a big area of meadow (along with other 2D face-me comps). Below that are the material settings within VRAY. I'd be very grateful fo ..read more

Looking for an output that mimicks the very "flat" Sketchup hidden line w/ shadows setting

With all of V-Ray's powerful photoreal abilities, I'm trying to swim upstream here and force it to do something super simple for an analytical purpose. What I want is an output that renders all objects flat white (no shading, etc.) and ONLY renders sun shadows. I am able to get close to this by setting a white color material override, turning off global illumination, and basically turning off 95% of the other settings--but still haven't been able to solve for the following two issues: 1. Objects that are not in shadow still have some slight shading for sloped roofs, etc. NOTE: If I crank up ..read more

Renders take an abnormally long time

Good morning, while I was working on a file at a certain point the renders started taking a long time to render. Even in the scenes previously created and for which the renders took an adequate amount of time to complete, they began to be very slow. The file also weighs little, around 276 MB, I often work with heavier files and render in much less time. I have tried cleaning the sketchup file several times, I have also tried splitting the file into different parts but the problem persists. For example this render has been going for 17 hours and isn't even halfway done​ According to the b ..read more
