    @Shivabhilash Bharadwaj To my understanding, yes, you can render with vray. Just change the render engine in the settings and you should be good to go.

    @leon9obsidian I will try and find out. In the meantime you could browse through Digital Tutors vault.

    @leon9obsidian It should do it automatically. Just move your frames from 24 (default) to something like 300 and click play 🙂 If you want to know how to save a render animation just ask me!
    *NOTE* To move your frames up. You see bellow the timeline bar the two boxes saying '24.00'? In the left box type the desired number 😉
