Load EXR back into VFB?
show user profile  9krausec
If a small area needs re-rendering of a large EXR, is it possible to open that exr into the VFB, render the region that changed (affecting all passes in VFB) to avoid re-rendering the whole thing? I know I can render out just the part and splice in PS, but my goal is to have a correct EXR that I can archive for later use...

For instance, region render just updates the original save as long as it's still loaded in the VFB.

Don't know if this is possible or if I even made any sense. I know you can open vray image files here-


but it won't recognize EXRs... If doing what a described in the VFB is there any other way to achieve this? Many times I'll render something out and see that a screw needs to be changed a different material way after the fact (just an example).


Thanks guys.

Don't think this is possible sadly, could be wrong.


Can be done with Corona though, and what's even cooler is you can carry on the render too!

ffs. All I'm hearing about is this Corona! I think I may need to test it out.

I feel I haven't even scratched the surface of Vray though... to start another render-er just seems like too much overhead at this point.. But with Nik getting so excited about it, haha.

Doesn't hurt to get a demo or something and play around.

i believe they left the functionality to load vrimg files just as that, for the off situation that someone wants to re-render a partial image without rendering the rest OR compositing the final file together.

if something needs to change, do it right and just render the image again.



oh and pffff @ corona.

Yeah. I'm just re-rendering it. Thought there might of been some sort of wicked Vray trick or something.

Cheers.

the issue is that if the part isn't a tiny little screw in a large scene/image then it has contribution to the rest of the scene...


and if it is, then you can just render a patch for that and be done with it.

Cant you do it using vray history? Load the image in and then do a region?

For your requirements, I am sure that Vray is the best.

I think you should get a Vray tattoo!
Go on, get drunk and do it.

as a side note, are you enjoying corona? i don't remember why i didn't like it but i didn't.

To be honest, I hardly do any 3D work any more. I spend most of my day working with spreadsheets and telling people what to do. My active 3D career ended years ago.

However, I have been using Corona a bit in the evenings here and there and for what I do, which is mostly product shots, it's been quite good. The programmers and I disagree on how materials should work, and my time with it has almost come to an end, as it's about to be a commercial product, but I've quite enjoyed fiddling with it.

I do like how fast it is, considering it's unbiased, and very few "settings" which pleases me.

I do understand how it's totally useless to you though!

So.... do we get to see your vray tat?
