SketchUp version : 2020.1 Skatter version (Skatter dialog > Options > About) : 2.1.3 OS : windows 10 Description of the issue : render only feature is still unusable with vray 5 Are you able to reproduce the issue every time? (If yes, how?) :yes Error in Ruby Console? (Window > Ruby Console) : no
i’m confused to say i’m very disapointed using skatter, while i was very excited waiting for working with.
I can’t use render-only option with vray 5, while it’s the main feature I expect from Skatter.
I have to compute the scattered objects in the model in order to render them.
This issue is reproductible every time I work on a project. Sometimes, the rendering is effective on first hit, then saving sketchup file, closing and re-opening it…and then it’s a headheck to understand why it doesn’t work at all…
Replying to myself and adding details of the experience.
I CAN use render only mode when i use the following trick:
-Work in sketchup 2021 and Skatter. Not launching Vray Rendering.
-Open the same file in Sketchup 2020 (With open Newer version Plugin by Eneroth)
-Save and close file as it is (2020 version)
-Open in Sketchup 2021
-Hit render…and voilà !
So…what is going on?
Does Skatter needs to consider a file to be a brand fresh new stuff ?
I would like to have some users comments and report of their personnal expreriences.
We made some changes after that version in the interaction between Skatter and V-Ray, and V-Ray also released an update in the meantime.
So this will tell us if the issue comes from our changes, or from the V-Ray update.
