vray_adv_XXXX_katana_2_0_linux_x64_XXXX2.0 (supported since rev 25794)


Table with important changes that happened in particular revision:

25819Added support for 'instance source' and 'instance' location types.
25842Added initial support for Live rendering in Katana 2.0. RT CPU only at the moment. Support for editing material parameters. Support for moving lights and editing their parameters.
25865Builds made with clang 3.4 compiler are available. These builds work out of the box in all supported Katana versions. The main benefit for the users is better rendering performance (10-30%).
  1. Defaults for the color_mapping options in the VrayGlobalSettings node have changed. New mode parameter that replaces the old donf_affect_colors parameter. The gamma parameter default changes to 2.2. These defaults make the render to be less noisy, because the image sampler works in sRGB space.
  2. Added support for Intel's Embree raycaster for clang builds (normal builds doesn't support it, because there are bugs in the GCC 4.1.2). It is off by default at the moment. This new engine gives better rendering performance for some scenes (30-75%).
  3. Added min_shading_rate, divide_shading_subdivs, max_ray_intensity and some other options to the VrayGlobalSettings node.
25943Added support for ID Pass. This makes it possible to select objects in the Scenegraph from the Monitor tab.
