Vray scattered lights not rendering
« on: July 03, 2023, 11:46:07 AM »
Hello,

I am trying to experiment with the scatter lights function for the first time, it seems to be not working.

I am scattering some vrayLights in a test scene. I have trying scattering them on a path or through reference mode. In any case, scattered light appear correctly in the viewport and the FP object doesn't display any warning or error.

Despite that, when I hit render, no light appears in the scene. Lights only work if I instantiate them, but then I lose the parametric properties that I would like to keep. I have been trying to fiddle with all the options, but I can't understand what I'm doing wrong.

I'm using the lastest version of FP, and Vray 5 Update 1.2. Could it be a matter of Vray not being updated to the latest version?

I am attaching a screenshot of scene + setup, hopefully it helps. Thanks!

Hi Javier,

The "support for native light instancing in V-Ray" requires the V-Ray 5.2 or greater, Updating to the V-Ray 5, Update 2 should help.

Best regards,
