Plugin Search Paths

Where Visionary Render looks for plugins

Visionary Render Lua plugins are loaded at start-up, and are found in the following locations:

  • install_root/plugins

  • install_root/data/plugins

  • doc_dir/plugins

  • VRTREE_PLUGINS_DIR% (environment variable)

install_root is the location where Visionary Render is installed.

doc_dir refers to Documents/VisionaryRender or similar (side-by-side installs use Documents/VisionaryRender-X.X.X).

The search behavior for /plugins directories is to look for a sub-folder containing a .lua file of the same name. For example, plugins/my_plugin/my_plugin.lua.
