rendering nCloth with V-Ray?

So what is best practice for rendering nCloth using V-Ray?

Recently I had a file set up like this. Animated geometry driving nCloth (with shader attached) by way of a wrap deformer. Then I exploded the nCloth utilising a tearable constraint. Then I nCached it. It seemed to work fine and would render it's base shader. However, the textures and displacement maps did not render. I tried a point cache but it still had the same problem as well as the point cached geometry being extremely sluggish if I selected it and impossible to work with.

Solved. The shader utilized Uv Chooser nodes which didn't connect to the outputCloth. Therefore, I can either rebuild the shader differently or use the relationship editor to reassign UVs.
