algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hello everyone,

here you have a script to make animations with "V-Ray for Rhino" plugin, using materials in .vismat or .vrmat formats.

My thanks and appreciation to Pieter Segeren for helping me to polish the script and to Matt Newberg for his advice. Matt has just published (a few minutes before this post) the .dll of VRay for Rhino in .NET, you can find it here. Due to I already got what I wanted, I will not continue with this script. But the door is open to a much deeper code, as well as a component for creating materials or for settings of V-Ray.

Enjoy it :)

Hello Daniel,

I've used your script before and it worked like a charm!

Right now I'm trying to use it using Vray 3.4 and I can't seem to get it to work even with indicating the path inside the path function.

I'd rather not rollback to an earlier version of Vray, provided the modifications don't take too long.

Ok, I get it, you need to indicate the path inside the path function and not by the note function.

Buy now I have another question: how did I index multiple geometries with multiples materials?

Hi Daniel

I`ve just wanted to use your definition but it didn`t work out properly. Actually the problem is in the last component that is the VBscript. Everytime I run the defenition, I face to this error in the end:

0. error: Value cannot be null.

Parameter name: source (line: 0)

Could you help me get through it?

Hey Guys, I am trying to get this Vray animation script to plug into a slider!!

ie. so instead of animating the list items, it animates slider items.

I can't figure it out..

Can anyone help?

Hi Daniel,

Thanks again for your great work!

I created a rotating building during a day. I used your definition with lighting.

The thing is, the shadow is not rotating, it stays on the same position. How can I solve this?

Another question, I would like to use the sun as a light. So the intensity of the light changes over time. Do you know how to do this?

Thanks in advance!
