Create highly realistic 3D architectural drawings with V-Ray, a popular third-party renderer for SketchUp. This course shows how to take a single scene with interior/exterior elements and add lights, move cameras, and enhance objects with translucent and reflective surfaces. Author Brian Bradley explains concepts like irradiance mapping, perspective correction, and fixed rate sampling, while showing how to leverage each of the V-Ray tools and its material and lighting types to achieve specific effects.
If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this V-Ray for SketchUp course. The exercise files are in the Exercise Files folder, which I have placed on my Desktop. You can of course store it wherever you like. There are files for most movies. They reside in subfolders named for each of the chapters. It is not necessary for you to use these files. You can use files of your own in place of them if you like.
If you are a Monthly or Annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along using files containing your own work.
