Max8 and Vray
show user profile  TheModeler

Greetings to all, this is my first message so I hope that I'm doing things right. :)

I have been using max8 for quite some time now. Recently I have installed Vray for Max 8, but in the "Materials" slot I can not find any "Vray" option under the "Standard- Material Browser".

I have never installed or used Vray earlier and intend to test it. So please tell me how can I initiate Vray...:(

While installation of Vray I did not get any error message.

Here is a screen shot :

Please help.....:(

Have you assigned Vray as your rendering engine? I know that mental ray materials only appear when you're rendering with mental ray... so perhaps it's the same for Vray.

Oh, thank you very much have been really helpful my friend.

One more request, I got max8, what exactly is the latest version of Vray available for Mx8? Sorry I tried to search the Chaos Group's site, but I could not ascertain myself about the latest version.

Thanks again...
