Render not available

Hi, I have a problem with the rendered view on rhino7.
When I select the rendered view, the following message appears at the left bottom of the screen: “rendered () not available”.
The problem has started since I installed the Vray plugin for rhino and since then I haven’t solved it yet.
Can anyone tell me how to proceed?
Thanks in advance

Please run the Rhino command _SystemInfo and post the results here.

You mean the Raytraced mode, no doubt.

no… not the Raytraced mode, I wrote render mode. It’s the third option from the top (wireframe, … , render,…)

Hi -

That sounds like a V-Ray issue, then. What happens when you disable the V-Ray plug-in in the plug-in manager and restart Rhino?
(you didn’t provide the SystemInfo data…)

I just tried to disable the plug-in as you said and the render view works without problems. When I turn Vray on again the problems appears again…

Hi -

You will have to ask the Chaos Group people for support with this issue. I’ll change this thread to the appropriate category but you might need to reach out through their official support channel.

Thank you for your help !

Which version of V-ray for Rhino you are using?
Did you test Interactive Render from V-ray frame buffer?

If it is working the V-Ray Interactive viewport should be working too.



I don’t know which version I’m using but in any case no… the interactive render doesn’t work.
When I push the icon I only see a black frame and the render stops in a second.
