Vray with raytrace?
show user profile  SimbaSpirit
I finally decided to get v-ray Adv 1.5 (RC3).

I tried to test it out on a scene I have with glass and I get warnings for everything with raytrace that it is incompatible with vray.

So, how do I either make raytrace material compatible with vray or make vray compatible glass/water?

stop using raytrace,

learn to use all vray materials for your scenes,

heres a tut on glass in vray :)

-oh looks like old vray... also make sure you tick effect shadows, and effect alpha under refraction, .. otherwise your glass will cast solid shadows, and will be completly opaque in alpha.
