Camera visibilty - vraycam offsets
« on: March 17, 2013, 08:15:26 PM »
Would it be possible to make forest recognise vrayphysicalcam horizontal and vertical offsets? It works fine with a skew modifier on top of the vray cam to do the same thing, but not with the native vrayphyscam ones.

Thanks!

As far i can see, camera clipping reacts correctly with the offset changes. Please, would you post a screenshot with the problem ?

Did you try rendering that? It seems to work fine in the viewport, but not when rendering (you may need to use quite a big offset to get it to show the problem)

(I just noticed I'm on 4.01, will upgrade to 4.02 and check if it fixes it)

Yes, you're right... it doesn't work at render (i didn't tried that).

I don't know if the problem is ours or VrayPhisycalCamera is returning some wrong value. We will check it.

the most recent release of vray fixed a problem where the viewport representation of the offset didnt match the rendered output - maybe that affects things?

Do I win something for finding a bug? :)

I just wrote to ChaosGroup. There is a difference in some of the values returned by the camera at render time, compared with the viewport.

Do I win something for finding a bug? :)

Hopefully you win a patch... but not an eye patch ! (those are in other less recommendable forums). ;D
