vray default settings
show user profile  br0t
is there any way to set default render settings for vray (or any other renderer)? So when I start max, it has those settings right from the beginning. Its annoying to set them for every new scene by hand.
I know I can save a preset and load that, but I dont even want to do that^^ Is it possible?

edit: I can do it with a small startup script that loads the .rps file, but maybe one of you knows a simpler way?

Ah whatever, it works so what.

If anyone is interested, this is the script (placed in Scripts\Startup) that will load the file vray.default.rps from the maxroot\renderpresets folder on each startup:

--load a default vray .rps file if found in max root\renderpresets folder:
theRPS = (getDir #maxRoot + "\\renderPresets\\vray.default.rps")
if theRPS != undefined do renderpresets.LoadAll 0 theRPS

Setting your settings and saveing the scene as maxstart.max in the scenes folder should do it

the maxscript approach does work but the maxstart scene like horizon mentioned is a good deal easier and can keep your gamma settings as well.
