Thank you.

It would be great if you could implement a 24 hour grace period to use the new version while waiting for SR to be activated. Is it possible to provide this service as its extremely frustrating to wait for a day when I've already installed it now I cant use it? Or, if at all possible, please introduce a automated verification system to handle the activation process.

Also, would be great if you could add a 'camera target' button to the UI?

I have an idea...why not

I have an idea...why not making exposure tool separate , so I can use Exposure tool alone with my own just need to add button render at exposure tool....itll very usefull

ma..thats my spur inspiration after trying to learn what solid rock does....

BTW...why did your solid rock when I open it , it always to force with solid rock setting [Altho I can setting it not to, but still it found it a little annoy tho, it somtimes broke my render setting, especially on V-Ray Color Mapping tho], Could you making it default not to broken the [just grab the setting from renderer setting/or just modify where the area did need improvement about quality, like IM ,LC , DMC sampler only, not include V-Ray Color Mapping and GI setting (contrast ,etc)]

Thanks for hearing and woderfull scripts

Simply the best plugin for vray

you concentrate on the design, not on touching parameters.

extremely usefull

I love it...I've been using vray for 6 years, read several books, but still I can't be bothered to set it up for every scene. SR does this very well. It's like I bought better hardware - renders are faster and of better quality.

SolidRocks + Jerome = Awesome

With out a doubt Solid Rocks is the best plugin/script...ever!

I have been in the 3D and Architectural game for over 15 years now and currently work in a very busy bespoke Architectural practice in Melbourne, the one thing that doesn't change... we never seem to have the time to get it just right.... and to play with the endless Vray settings, tweak colours etc is considered a luxury. Time and money is always the dictator...
Moreover, client expectations is constantly evolving, partly fueled by the film and television industries, realistic images and animations are now essential to facilitate the communications between ideas and the end products and to achieve this quickly and efficiently is paramount.
Solid Rocks is arguably the best connection to Vray speeding up the rendering and tweaking process and ensuring very happy clients which translates to faster sign-off's.

Full Kudos to Jerome Prevost for his continual dedication to this great product! :-)
