Re: 3DSMax-Vray no thumbnails

Thumbnails are generated by afrender after (or during) task calculation. Afrender should know a path to image file(s) to generate thumbnails. This path can be given to job on a submission stage, and than, afserver will send it to render with a task. Or afrender can parse image path from a task proce...
