Vray Rhino won't render for some reasn

Hello! I’m not sure if this is a right place to ask questions but, it’s sort of urgent.

I’m trying to render with v-ray rhino but somehow the rendering process stops right after it gets started

rendering stopped at that point and did not proceed any further…

The screen is just grey and I don’t see my model…

If someone can solve this, I will be so greatful

Thank you!

Hi Levi - Hmm - probably best to check in with Chaos Group, here: http://forums.chaosgroup.com/



If your V-Ray rendering has problems, make sure that the dongle is plugged in AND being seen. The easiest way I know to fix this is to un-plug it, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in. You can also quit Rhino and re-launch. These two steps always work for me.

If there are problems with the rendered IMAGE, then I made a video to help trouble-shoot the most common errors.

Did you set-up a proper scene or is just a test?
If you read the message looks like the rendering was done successfully
The scene is very small (bounding box of 5x5x11) and, probably, without any light.
