vray mtl sample always black!!?
show user profile  fierce
just installed vray for maya 2012. in the hypershade and attribute editor there is no round lambert ball looking thing just a black box/ screen for every vray material. It updates when I render and the program works but i can't see my changes in real time in the editor on the ball. Is this a settings error or maybe installed it wrong?

Not sure about Maya, but in max, when you choose vray as your renderer, it automatically makes vray the renderer for the material editor too. You can unlink and set each seperately though.

Maybe it doesn't do it automatically in maya. I think a quick search for maya material editor renderer should show you where to set vray as the material renderer. :)
