Render crashing when using SSS and a vray photometric light?
show user profile  xcloudx
I'm trying to render a scene that contains an object with a SSS material applied to it, and i have a vray photometric light with an ies profile on it.
Max crashes on rendering it every time, it flashes up an error box when it crashes but it only shows up for a split second before max closes itself so i can't read it.
Does anyone have any idea how i can stop it from crashing when using these two together?

Here is the scene file if you want to look at it.

Thank you.

Can you screenshot the error before it closes?

It's your light. It's not a VrayIES light.

ah thank you. Changing my lights to vrayIES solved the issue. Though i've lost some detail in my lights by swapping over to it, how can i get it back?

I got this stripey pattern of light appearing on the cieling the light was next to with the old photometric light. but with vrayies it just looks like a solid chunk of white. How can i get back that effect that i got from the photmetric light? I'm using the same ies file on both lights.
