I have a few projects on the horizon which would warrant some upgraded render quality and workflows.
I recently ran some tests with the Physical Render engine in R13, but was stopped in my tracks when I discovered that there is an issue (apparently also in R14) with rendering out .RPF / .RLA files with z-depth and normal (etc.) data.
I’m wondering whether Vray might be a viable alternative?
A large portion of the work I do is product visualization. And small products, at that - tabletop studio stuff.
Is Vray going to give me an immediate, and noticeable speed advantage over Cinema’s Physical engine?
Obviously, it can make some high-quality work - but so too can C4D’s render engine. I’m simply stymied by the lack of post control right now.
Can Vray render to such formats as .RPF and .RLA? Obviously, that’s critical to me.
Thanks. And I was hoping to post this at the Vray4mac forum, but it’s only accessible to Vray owners.
