I believe you can do it relatively easily store the current renderer in a variable

vr = renderers.current

and access it with "show vr", not at work, but this should work.

Thank you guys! The "show" syntax is greatly helpfull.But i still have another problem with the VRay property.In the VRay1.5 RC5 there is an "override exclude" function in the "global switch" panel,if I want to access this function in my script,how shall i edit my script?I am waiting for a surprize,haha:D

Thank u again to MoonDoggie:)))

Why not just e-mailing chaosgroup, or posting to their forums, and ask them. Since they are the developers they will be able to tell you all commands that you can access and how to do it.

I think the override exclude button just brings up the exclusion/include dialog, which in maxscript would be exclusionListdlg(). In order to manipulate the exclusion list you could look up the properties and methods in the maxscript reference.

MoreInfoPlz ( vbmenu_register("postmenu_5073371", true); ,thanks for reminding me:)

Now,i use "ei=exclusionListDlg()" then there returns an array to "ei" which contents my excluding objects, I just want to know how to override exclude the material of these objects in VRay "override exclude"button? Or need i write several sentence, if so, the optional "override mtl" may be rewrite with maxscript, that's boring.
