Architectural Materials not showing in material editor
show user profile  PS3D

I'm using 3DMax2009 with VRAY 1.5 SP3. I've just tried to load one of the standard "architectural materials" that come with 3D MAX but it's just showing as black in my material editor. But if i apply the material to my model and render it, it renders fine. Any ideas why?

no worries. tried to use one of the "pro materials" also but no luck there either.

Thanks for the comment! Tried looking at your website but doesn't seem to be working. ?

I don't believe the Architectural Material works with Vray. I may be wrong, but I noticed the same thing when I downloaded the vray demo and played around with it a bit. All of my Arch materials went black...

i'm pretty sure Arch materials are only for Mental Ray so they won't work with VRAY

that was the case but in the recent patch notes for sp3 it says vray can use arch materials.
