Vray for Maya


So occasionally the Vray frame-buffer gets screwed up. Sometimes you’ll lose the frame-buffer window off screen and you can’t get it back, sometimes the frame-buffer completely crashes Maya with a ‘fatal error’.

Here’s how I fix this issue

  1. Save your Maya scene file as Maya ASCII.
  2. Open the ASCII file in a text editor. Vim handles very large text files easily and is available on all platforms.
  3. Search for ‘.vfbSA’ in the ASCII file.
  4. Select and delete the entire setAttr entry. Like so:


5. Save the ASCII file and open the scene in Maya.
6. Fixed!
