Disappearing leaves on render nodes
« on: July 24, 2017, 10:12:44 AM »
We have just updated our systems to Max 2018, Forest Pro 5.4.0 and VRay 3.6 and have quite an issue with rendering on files that previously worked fine.

Workstations are rendering just fine, but when the render nodes kick in using distributed rendering all of the leaves on the trees disappear; though the trunks/branches/twigs still render.

All mapping appears to be fine, and the nodes are on the same versions of the software.

Please, see this post.
It seems the same problem, which theorically is fixed in V-Ray 3.60.02.

with the previous version of vray was worst, the latest vray version worked a bit better but didn't fix the whole problem.

answer from chaosgroup forum:
There will be a 3.60.03 a bit later this week that definitively fixes the issue (it is also already fixed in the stable 3.6 builds on the nightly builds server). Sorry for the troubles - this was because of some optimization that we tried to do, but it doesn't work correctly for Forest Pack.
