This page provides information on V-Ray .vrscene references.


Page Contents



V-Ray .vrscene reference allows you to import .vrscenes exported with V-Ray for other platforms, and only loads the full details at render time. This allows the rendering of scenes with many millions of triangles; more than Modo itself can handle in its viewports.



 UI Paths:

 |Item List Viewport| > Add Item dropdown > V-Ray Geometry > V-Ray .vrscene reference

 |Item List Viewport| > Add Item button > Add Item Window > Directories > V-Ray Geometry > V-Ray .vrscene reference


Basic Parameters

The source .vrscene file.

  • It is still possible to import a .vrscene instead of simply referencing it. See the page on Importing a .vrscene for more information.
