Vray Proxy of FBX File - Materials not loading


Have downloaded some sample FBX pine tree models from Maxtree:

The files are pretty complex and given they are trees I would like them to be a vray proxy. The trees look great within Transmutr, all the materials are found and applied correctly.

When I import the proxy into sketchup through vray the trees arrive with no materials attached (bright colours). I know a work around when this happens with proxies made within vray (saving the multimaterial seperately from the source file) but as Transmutr is creating the proxy I can’t think of a way of applying the materials to the proxy.

I’ve got a load of photos of the process but hopefully this should be straight forward enough to understand.

What am I doing wrong, how do I ensure the materials are correctly applied in the proxy?



You should not load the *.vrmesh through V-Ray.
Instead, import the *.skp file generated by Transmutr. It’s a proxy itself (linking to the *.vrmesh), with all the materials.

Yup, that fixes it. Not sure why of all the things I tried I didn’t do that.


I have the same problem, and nothing help. Materials not appear !!
Is there please any video link to explain this?

Can you send us the file to [email protected]?

I think I succeeded to do it by open the file as you suggested.
Thank you very much !!!
Perfect plugin !! Skatter as well :slightly_smiling_face:
