You may think that when it comes to using V-Ray RT, there would be hundereds of options to choose from, just as there is when using its production renderer counterpart. The truth though, is that we only really need to focus on a few main options such as Samples, Time and also Noise Threshholds, which makes RT a very easy renderer to use indeed.
- [Voiceover] Despite what the V-Ray RT help documents…may say at the time of this recording,…we don't need to set RT as an active shade renderer…in 3ds Max in order to access RT specific rendering options.…Indeed, as soon as we set it up as the…production renderer in the render setup dialogue,…everything that we need in the way of options…can be seen sitting right here in front of us,…in the V-Ray tab that is, although we do need to…keep in mind that the two distinct modes of…V-Ray RT, so production and active shade,…both have unique and so mutually exclusive settings…which also include the resolution…and output options that can be found…in the render setup dialogues comment tab.…
Now seeing as the vast majority of…controls that we have in front of us here…work more or less, if not exactly the same as they do…in the production engine, we are going to skip over…most of the rollouts here and focus solely…on the RT specific options that can be found…inside the aptly named V-Ray RT rollout,…a few of which we have already come into contact with.…
