When I Auto load V-Ray(3.60.03) and Houdini Engine(3.0)in the Plug-in Manager in Maya 2018, the next time I reload Maya, V-Ray gets unloaded and I cannot load it through the Plug-in Manager. It will not allow me to check the “Loaded” box.
If I go into my pluginPrefs.mel, and load Houdini Engine after V-Ray, then it will load correctly. (see attached)
But upon exiting Maya, I believe that Maya automatically changes the order to where Houdini Engine will be higher on the list of commands, thus loading before v-ray.
Anybody have any similar problems?
