No V-Ray Physical Camera in Attribute Editor


I'm using Maya 2012 and V-Ray. I have the following problem: While V-Ray is basically working fine, I'm unable to create a V-Ray physical camera.

As far as I understood, I should do the following:

Create > Cameras > Camera
Attribute Editor > cameraShape tab > Attributes Menu > V-Ray physical camera.

But the last point is missing. Please find attached the Render Settings with V-Ray options and the Attribute Editor without. Thank you for your help in advance!

What version of Vray are you using?

You should probably post this on the Chaosgroup forums.

V-Ray is 2.00, Maya 2012.

I wasn't successful until now. Nobody an idea?
I tried it with the history button, but without effect.

Why do you not upgrade your VRay ?
You version is very old (more than 2 years).
Download the last VRay in your ChaosGroup account.

Point is, I'm quite busy at the moment, and I'd like to avoid to change the running system in the meanwhile. Seems, I will have to get the latest versions of both and hope it will work then. The physical camera would be "nice to have", but it doesn't kill me not to have it.

How odd. I'm sure I used to run that version of Vray on 2012 with no trouble.

Are you able to add other Vray attributes, such as the ones for a file node (Vray texture input gamma etc), or the shape node of a piece of geometry (Vray displacement quality etc) ?

maybe you could try reinstall the vray? but make sure you delete the vray dir when you uninstall it, just to make sure you have deleted everything...
