Alrighty. So I've got a scene set up to use VRay proxies as my custom objects but I'm having some issues with display and renders. The Vray Proxy was exported from and Onyx Tree object. The display issue involves toggleing between "bounding box" and "preview from file" modes within the MeshProxy Display prameters. In the Forest Pro Object, When I have the bounding box mode on for the proxy object, it displays as a box. No problem there. But when I render it out I get a scene full of beautiful boxes (which would be awesome if that's what I intended to do). So, I thought that by setting the proxy object to preview from file mode, it would fix it. You guessed it; only works in theory. Instead of showing the preview objects, it reverts to planes and the distribution also changes.
Any suggestions? Oh yeah: Max 2008 64x. I have some attached screen caps below.
