VrayEdgesTex in Bump Channel
« on: October 06, 2015, 03:37:15 PM »
Hello.

Found this topic for RailClone, but it appears that the same goes for Forest Pack too: VrayEdgesTex map in bump slot is ignored by Forest Pack same as RailClone.

Hi,

As mentioned in the linked thread, unfortunately this is a V-Ray limitation. Vlado has mentioned on their forums:

"[VrayEdgesTex] will not work on proxies for now; this is because when used as a bump map, VRayEdgesTex needs information for the entire mesh - obviously this is not possible with a proxy."

Both RailClone and Forest Pack use the instancing engine used by V-Ray proxies, so these limitations are shared as well.

If a solution becomes available we will certainly add it to our plugins.

Many thanks!

Paul
