Hello Joost!

I have a problem with the generation of lightmaps.
When I launch the lightmap generator script with a selected object I obtain this error message:
http://postimage.org/image/30d8je9b8/

How can I fix it? What kind of lamps can I use to create the lightmap using your script?
Thanks in advance! ;)

You'll need Vray to generate those lightmaps (at least with that script)

I already have VRay installed.
The problem maybe come from the version I have (2.0) ?

Hmm dunno, could be that indeed
Did you verify it was loaded correctly, or assigned as renderer?

Yes it seems to be fully charged: to render works.
I assign the RT version and the Adv version of VRay but none works with the script. :|

But maybe I've forgotten to configure something essential for this to work, I'm not very familiar with VRay, rather I use Mental Ray. Any advice?

About that "lamps" question above, I would go for VRayLight I guess

Ow, did they change that again? The VRay folks can't keep to a single name, now can they? I had the same problem when going to VRay 1.5. :(

Anyway, the problem is that in Vray 1.5, that thing is called "VRay_LightingMap", while it is called something different in VRay 2.0. I don't have VRay 2.0 myself, so I cannot see what will work, but could you try a couple of things?

Please open the file "Proun\Exporter\HelperScripts\Lightmap generator.ms" in Notepad and change this line:

local map = VRay_LightingMap()

I am not sure what it should be changed into, but could you try these two alternatives and let me know if any work?

local map = VRayLightingMap()
local map = VRayCompleteMap()
