Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using universal settings, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- In this final image sampling video for the chapter,…I'm going to walk through setting up…and then using what has come to be called…the universal settings approach.…This is a quick and easy way to get…high quality image sampling from V-Ray…whilst at the same time bypassing the need…to understand or even touch the vast majority…of image sampling controls…that the renderer makes available.…The drawback is that this approach…is in no way optimal for any of the scenes…that we may be working on.…With a little bit of tweaking, it is highly likely…that we will be able to get similar quality…from our scene with faster,…sometimes much faster, render times.…
The beauty of the settings though…is that they require, as we say,…almost no tweaking at all and we are guaranteed…to get a good result at the end of the render process.…The lack of optimization though…tends to mean that these settings…are best employed when rendering stills.…If we have a 500 frame animated sequence…that will take 50 minutes of frame…to render using the universal approach;…
