Really great work! Man, I need to delve into Sketch Up a lot more. I know it's capable of amazing things, but I find that I'm always running into problems where I get halfway done and find that to do what I want to do next would have been much easier if I had started differently. At least with the knowledge I have at the moment. I'm sure for the people that know it in and out it's extremely flexible.
Not long time ago I've installed Vray plugin and I've got few questions to you regarding this renderer:
1). Does Vray come only in plugin form? There isn't a standalone version that could launch itself, like Kerkythea? I'm wondering if I wanted to render models from various 3D modellers, would I have to buy few plugins? Or perhaps to use converters?
2). I see the Vray plugin GUI is different depending what 3D software you're using. But are there any differences when it comes to rendering/material options and rendering performance?
3). I think it's a common problem, but I couldn't finish right solution. When I apply 50% reflection layer to material, in render I can see the ugly white dots/blotches in highlight areas. I've tried with Subpixel mapping (or something) and it helped a little, but not entirely. Do you have any ideas how to solve it?
