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.
So, we have come to the end of our SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray course, but there is still plenty you can do to continue building your V-Ray rendering skills. One excellent option is to simply practice what you've learned. If you have access to the exercise files and the example scenes used in this course, well, so much the better. Do pay attention also to real-world photography courses here on lynda.com; especially be sure to check out The Foundations of Photography series by Ben Long that we mentioned.
Then of course you need to take what you learned regarding the principles of photography and apply it to working with V-Ray, and in particular the V-Ray physical camera. You can also check out our V-Ray 2.0 for 3ds Max and V-Ray 2.0 for Maya Essential Training courses found here on lynda.com. Although the host applications may be different, the essentials regarding how V-Ray works are still very much the same. Finally, you may want to check out the wealth of V-Ray information that can be found on Chaos Group's own Internet forums.
These are found at www.chaosgroup.com Well, I certainly hope that you have found this course to be both helpful and informative when it comes to getting up and running with V-Ray for SketchUp. My name is Brian Bradley, and I will say take care and bye for now!
