Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Image sampling explained, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- When working with a raytrace render engine such as V-Ray,…having a basic understanding of certain core fundamentals…of the technology will most certainly benefit…the work that we do with it.…Indeed, the final four videos in this chapter…have all been designed to help us grasp…a few critical rendering concepts…as they apply to the V-Ray engine.…In this video specifically we will be taking a look…at Image Sampling before moving on…and examining V-Ray subdivision, or subdiv,…and color mapping controls in later videos.…
The question we should perhaps start with then…is what exactly do we mean…when we talk about Image Sampling?…Well, when looking at the Image Sampling process…we are in fact looking at the most basic element…of Raytrace Rendering itself,…which is the process of creating or construction…a 2D image out of information…that has been collected from a 3D scene or environment.…Now in order to collect all…of the relevant information required,…such as the shape of geometric surfaces,…the properties of applied materials,…

Q: This course was updated on 02/02/2016. What changed?
A: We added tutorials on the new 3ds Max camera tool, which replaces the defunct V-Ray Physical Camera. The author also includes a method for creating a V-Ray camera via scripting.
