V-Ray standalone via SOHO (Russian project)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

So I happened upon vray.info's 6/22 entry on a Russian project that brings V-Ray Standalone to Houdini 9 via SOHO.

http://www.vray.info/news/article.asp?ID=266

The author's site is completely in Russian, would anyone care to translate the message to English?

I've downloaded the vraytestconnector-08-06-19.zip file on the entry and am poking at it at the moment. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Interesting! :D Not that I need to use V-Ray, but it really seems useful for certain (commercial) projects for people out there!

one nice thing is the HUGE material library at vray-materials.de

1421 materials, and a sample scene with hdr lighting and GI already set up...

The translation looks like this

Hope it helps**))

This is connector for Windows and 32-bit version of Houdini. If you want to make it to work everywhere, you need to compile python module(Wich is located http://www.xn--d1abb4ane.com/blog/wp-conte...04/newpython.c). In order to make light to became a sun you need to create a param vr_lighttype and to assign to it vr_sun. You'l need to edit file run_vray.py. Also most probable you'l need to edit param soho_pipecmd in your ROP. This connector is in testing phase so you couldn't relay on it as on a finished connector, Connector is for looking throw the sources, by the way its very slow, I 'l rewrite geometry generator.Recently coming are Vray materials to work in VEX Builder. Here it comes (http://www.xn--d1abb4ane.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/vraytestconnector-08-06-19.zip).

Thank you for visiting

I may need a little bit of help, since I have never compiled anything in C before.

Can I use g++ for that? (assuming I am on XP)

I am getting lots of errors when I put the following command (not sure if it's correct)

gcc -c newpython.c -o newpython.pyd

Installing newest version of python 2.5.2 didn't help

Even I have set up environment variable to the c:\pytho25\include the python.h file can not be found.

any idea what might be wrong?
