Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using VRayFur, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- What we're going to do in this video…is take a look at a Vray tool…that can be used to create some very simple,…and yet very nice,…render time effects such as…fur, hair, and grass…with a minimum of fuss.…This being the aptly named VrayFur tool.…We do already have a number of VrayFur effects…applied to our toy bear geometry in the scene…although we can't as of yet see them…because our VrayFur objects currently reside…on a hidden layer.…If i go ahead and turn that on…by clicking the lightbulb icon in the layer explorer…we instantly see all of our VrayFur effects…appear in the viewpoint.…
We could typically select VrayFur in the scene…by left clicking on any geometry that has it applied.…Although oftentimes working with the helper objects…may prove to be a better option…as opposed that is to trying…to select directly in the viewpoint.…Once we select a VrayFur object…we can jump into the modified tab of the command panel…in order to gain access to all…of the controls and parameters that it makes available.…What we want to do in the scene here…
