Maya/Vray Distributed rendering missing textures.

Hello everyone,

I am having a weird problem with VRay's DR. I have attached the Image, it will give the idea what I am facing. This is the final output from the software...When we rendered on single pc it comes out fine..but when rendering on network it shows 100 percent, but the render comes like the image i have attached. I did lot of search online regarding this problem, but there are only max users, who faced this problem...I almost tried everything that i know, but the result is still same..I don't know, what I am doing wrong, my project folder is shared, i have checked the all permissions, even my whole project/texture directory is running on unc path..if you have any idea what causes this problem..Please let me know..

Thanks in advance

y unc path, you mean they're already full path to the network directory right?
\\machine-name\share\project\etc\etc\image.tiff ?

Next question is, are you running Vray render slave as service? If so, then go into your services.msc, right click into the property of VrayMayaSpawner, and make sure you specify user name and password for it. So the service will gain all network credentials of that user.

Just in case. You manage user credentials by logging in as -that- user, go to Control Panel > User Accounts, and click "Manage your credentials" on the left. You want the user's credentials to be under "Windows Credentials."

Hi Panupat, thanks for the reply.

1.Yes, they are full path.

2.I couldn't find VrayMayaSpawner in services.msc.

3.All the other computer names are under windows credentials.

I would like to tell you the process that i followed.
I have installed Vray Standalone on all computers. first I started the vray standalone on each machine and and launched vray render slave..after that typed this command (vray -server).. in vray standalone then enabled distributed rendering in maya..

is this the right way or am I forgetting something? Is there any other process, plz explain me step by step..
