    Which hardware has been used for the render in the video? I have swapped my 7 year old GPU with a Radeon RX480 8 GB, overclocked my AMD Phenom to 3.5 Ghz and got 8Gb RAM with the expectation my PC would be now "Vray ready". However with exactly the same tutorial file RT is performing on my PC frustratingly laggy, slow, poor or crashes.

    At 03:45 why do you have to drag a material from the material library to the setting window in order to copy/paste it’s settings to another material? you will end up having 2 instances of the same material. Why not copy directly from material library and paste in settings without dragging the matterial?

    Wow. All this time using SU and I never knew pressing Alt with the paint bucket tool allows you to select a material by clicking on it. Thanks!!!!!!

    As its a beginners guide it might have been more useful to say what to do with the finished render, export it ? how?? etc rather than fuss over the grass.
    Helpful anyway

    I have the demo version. It seems that I cannot open the sample file for this exercise without a full license, is that correct?

    I followed this tutorial exactly but although my percentage bar says its 100% its still doing something and the render is very spotty. Unlike on yours where it says Rendering or Building Light Catch, theres no indication of what phase it’s at.
