Is there something like the Material Wrapper in Vray.

We use the Material Wrapper in Vray on every Project.
We cant work without.


I tried todo the same with using the ShadowMatte in Arnold in combo with holdouts.
But its near impossible to recreate the beaty image.


This is the Vray beaty image.


And here one Wrapper on the GroundPlane and one on the Cylinder.

Its a bit hard to see but there is the Gi on the floor also the Shadows are there.

Nothing new now I am afraid. Improvements are on the roadmap.

This is the closest that I got using a Rayswitch shader, but it's probably not what you want. I'll pass it on to support to see if they can help.

I managed to upload the file.
What i expect to see is a render with the Red Sphere + Shadows + Reflections + Gi + Alpha.
If i composit that image with the renderen background i would get the beauty.


In the scene file is also a Vray version.

I'm not sure exactly what end result you are trying to achieve? Can you upload the scene somewhere?

Would the Ray Switch shader help for GI and shadows?
