The Scene Analyzer is a built-in tool that checks the compatibility of your scene for rendering in V-Ray Cloud before submission.

Scene Analyzer

The Scene Analyzer is located on the Submit to V-Ray Cloud rendering window that appears when you submit a scene to V-Ray Cloud through 3ds Max.



Clicking the Analyze button will scan your scene and print out information about any textures, materials, plug-ins and assets, incompatible with V-Ray Cloud. The Preview button will scan your scene and run a preview of it with V-Ray Standalone.



You can switch between viewing the error origins and the scene elements using the View by error origins and View by scene elements buttons. Double-clicking on any of the unsupported nodes will open and highlight it within its corresponding window (Material Editor, Scene View, etc.).



Export animation – Enables the export of  animation to V-Ray Cloud.

Frame range – Specifies how to obtain the frame range.

Frame range – Specifies a Start frame and End frame manually.

Scene Animation range – Exports the animation frames already set in the 3ds Max scene.

Preview – Renders a local preview with V-Ray Standalone which is the closest approximation to the render output from V-Ray Cloud. The Width and Height parameters of the Local preview only affect the V-Ray Standalone preview.

The Preview and Submit buttons will also run the Scene Analyzer and print out any relevant information.
