Although we have noted that RT can be used with a minimum of fuss, there are still options available that can give greater control to more experienced users, and these can certainly enable us to get more speed and quality out of our final renders. Taking a look at a few of them now, should prove useful as we move through this course.
- [Voiceover] With a good idea in mind, then,…of just what the main V-Ray RT options can do for us,…we can move forward in this exercise…and take a look at some of the secondary…and yet, nevertheless, extremely important options…and controls that the RT engine also makes available to us.…First of all, then, let's come back up to the top…of the RT rollout and take a look at three…of the extra controls that we have there.…Namely, progressive rays per pixel,…undersampling, and show statistics.…Progressive rays per pixel gives RT…the ability to start rendering an image…using a lower-than-set rays per pixel value…and then progressively increase towards it.…
This has the effect of speeding up…our initial preview of an image,…adding, of course, to the usability of RT…as an interactive rendering system.…Undersampling also helps RT speed up…the initial preview of a render…by starting the render at a lower resolution…and then, again, progressively ramping up the sampling…so that, ultimately, the image does get rendered…
