Let me put it this way... Why the f#$% Mental Ray is not advertized even 1% as Vray ?
show user profile  khamski
I am sitting here like an idiot waiting for this simple render with low settings to fucking finish.
And i have plenty till this project is over.
Because i work in Vray.

Did i chose to work in Vray?


It was chosen for me.

Important bits of this project were made in Vray.
My partner in this work works in Vray.

So i work in Vray.

Now question.

Why Mental Ray is not advertized at fucking ALL ?

I mean MR is a fucking monster.
It is natural.
It is more logical.
It is simpler.
It is faster.

It EVEN HAS A DAMN presets to get any basic mat you want.

I don't ask why people choose to spend money and use this ridicule crap Vray.

I ask why MR is not advertized properly?
Its not hard to add few fancy fucntions and WIN THE FUCKING COMPETITION once and FOR ALL!!

damn it..


now i feel better

The two groups looking after it are Nvidia and Autodesk....

Nvidia mostly only want to sell consumer graphic cards and Autodesk are best at coin counting and re-branding .

mR is capable of awesome stuff, and it's got great material support.

But when i say to people like "Wtf? Use mR! It's costs nothing and it awesome!"
He goes like "Mmm... Naaahh... You need to actually code shaders there.. I know I know it's cooll.. but naaahh"

That darn spoooky shader coding horror story is still fucking around!
And nobody wants to kill it and present this mR awesomeness as it deserved to be presented.

Like "dude.. No look here duuuude! mR has A&D material that is way better and easier than vray crap but not only this! It even has a materials presets!!! So you click and boom! Glass is there! Metal is there! Fucking leather is there!!!"

Trying not to. Thats why i let off some steam here.
3 months of watching render, paying for render and watching render again can make anyone go crazy.

if it's significantly slower than what you are used to in MR, it may be that your settings aren't very optimal. I've not used MR in a very long time though. -

You are looking at this wrong....

You didn't choose vray. Vray chose you.

sorry for your troubles.....I like Vray FWIT

All renderers are welcome here.

Corona is my favourite at the moment.

mr don't need any advertisement because its bundled anyway :p There are legitimate reasons to pick vray over mr but I think most people use it "because everybody else does too"

)))) n1 100% true

I don't thinK vray settings are that much of an enigma.
I mean my settings are lower than low. Mats too. I even turned glossy reflections off.

Btw. That awesomeness you showed in WRYWO... What was the renderer?
Don't say Vray. Just don't.

Weird result of adding great renderer into all 3d packages.
Nobody use this renderer!

Gotta try Corona.
But definetely not for arch. viz.
It's captured by Vray as a hostage.

It's not 100% intuitive. I was doing it wrong for years. Click the link and watch these two videos. This is not a request. Do it!

not always. I'd be embarrassed to say how slow the machine was that I was working on at my last project. -

E-Penis envy..

Don`t get that much nowadays as KB doesn`t post here very often.

Interesting point though Khamski would be worth seeing some up to date benchmarks between the two.
