BUG#1 hiding calculation

BUG#1
hiding calculation passes of IM or LC, does not work correctly upon first time, you have to click "LC" button 2 times to hide IM only.

other than that

it is AN ACE script which does most of the things very well and i recommend it my friends and they have thanked me many timeson the phone.

as for me,90% of my renders are rush renders which have clean materials and less drama and this script saves me time/joy.

congratulations.

hi jerome, im still waiting

hi jerome,
im still waiting for the NON-GI tools :)

i think if its GI only it should be made aware that its only for GI modification...

but why not just include non-gi settings? they very much determin the render times as well
which sampler is being used, what divisions, the global subdivision multiplier has a great effect on over all speed, then noise threshold etc.

there are all these options for non-GI, please let me know when you have included them

This script rocks. It's so

This script rocks. It's so much of a time saver that it's hard to believe how I could work without it until now. Definitely buying it and recommend everyone that works daily with vray to do the same.

With out a doubt Jerome and his Scripts rock!! I use it, love it and recomend it to everyone. I have had great success with it personally and commercially...it's reliable, fast and easy to use! my only comment would be to raise the price as it's worth far more!!
Keep up the great work Jerome!

Kind regards,

Luke
