Skattered instances not showing up in batch renders

When rendering a single image in Vray next and Skatter 2 the skattered instances show. However, when doing a batch render, the Skatter 2 instances are not showing up.

The scene I’m working in also has Skatter 1 grass (can’t wait for the V2 library!) and the grass from Skatter 1 does show up in the batch renders.

Feel free to reach out if any additional information would be helpful.


I’m not able to reproduce this issue.

What exact versions of Skatter 2 and V-Ray are you using?

Hi Thomas,

I’m running V-Ray for SketchUp 4.20.01 and Skatter Version : 1.4.12a

The scenes are 1600 x 900. ‘Enable scene transitions’ is unchecked and Scene delay time is set to 1.

The file is confidential but I’d be happy to share it with you directly if it would help.

Thank you!

Yes please do send the file to [email protected] if possible.

Hi Thomas,

Got to the bottom of this issue, I think it was a user error although you might be able to clarify. When I closed out of the Sketchup file and reopened it and click render the Skatter 2 instances won’t show in the render until I click the ‘generate’ button again. Is that how it’s suppose to work?

Thank you.

No it’s not!

Indeed I’m able to reproduce this issue. I don’t know how we missed that! ^^

Great news! Thanks Thomas!

@caseymjones The bug you discovered has been fixed.
Things should run more smoothly in the upcoming Skatter 2 version (beta 6). Thanks!
