Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling exposure manually, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- Whilst the default Auto ISO exposure method…in the new Physical Camera…is in my honest opinion,…the simplest way to handle exposure in a scene,…we can of course still make use of a more…manual approach to the process,…should we want, or need to.…All we need do is enable the Manual,…instead of Target Option in the Camera's controls,…and we're good to go.…Indeed this will instantly put many V-Ray users…back on very familiar ground,…as we can now use the various photographic or…camera based controls,…to handle the brightness of our renders.…
Although, of course not everyone is going to be comfortable…with the idea of using camera controls,…in order to deal with illumination levels…in a 3D render,…which is why we're going to spend a few minutes…in this video…examining each of the controls that make up…the exposure triangle,…as it is often times referred to,…until we can get a better idea of the role they play…in controlling scene lighting.…First of all then let's come to the Lens section…of the Physical Camera roll out,…
