V-Ray Set GI Paths

Continuing my theme of releasing  simple and useful scripts, I thought I would release this simple tool for quickly setting both Irradiance Map and Light Cache auto save and from file paths. When you are submitting jobs to be rendered this is one of those tedious things that you need to do which lends it self to human error as it is very easy to point a path to the wrong location (we have all done it)…

It has a very simple interface, basically you set the path where you would like the GI passes to be saved, type in a name and hit the button. This will set the paths for light cache and Irradiance maps. I have also added some quick options for swapping the modes of GI passes.

If you have any problems with please let me know. 

 

Cheers, 

Dave

another feature request is

adding the toggle of "autosave" functions of both IR and LC modes, and if not too much, the "use camera path" options so that we humans wont go to the render setting page for long.
