Can Grasshoper be used as a Bongo replacement?

unhandled

#1

Hi,

I ask this provocative question since VfR next will not support advanced rendering per Bongo (GI caching, motion blur).
https://forums.chaosgroup.com/forum/v-ray-for-rhino-forums/v-ray-for-rhino-wishlist/1021431-fly-through-animation

My little hope is that Bongo could provide better data for render plugin use and maybe Chaosgroup will fully work with Bongo.

I don’t know Grasshopper and so maybe I misunderstood the situation and Grashoper can be used for object animations like Bongo?

Best regards,
Micha

Hi Micha,

I was wondering the same question; especially since I find bongo a little cumbersome.
I managed to “frankenstein” different plugins together and it worked the one time I needed it. the GH definition moved the camera on a path, issued a new render through GRay/ VrayfGH,
As for motion blur … I don’t know.

Currently I am traveling and will have access to my files next week –

A GH based animation “suite” would be killer!!

Animating walkthroughs with complex camera paths will be possible in V-Ray Next for Rhino via the new V-Ray Timeline Grasshopper component.
This will be so good! Any word on VRayCloud Support?

Looks like it will be possible:

its a hack but it works:

cam control through flounder cam
render trigger through G-Ray
Vray renderinger through Vray for Grasshopper
false start toggle from ladybug?( sorry forgot to remove it)

hopefully this will get a lot better with the next release of vray :wink:
