Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video V-Ray hair shader, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- One of the areas that received an awful lot…of attention in the release of V-Ray version 3…was the oftentimes difficult scenario…of rendering CG hair and fur which,…for the sake of this video, we will treat as one…and the same thing.…The V-Ray hair file modifier, the V-Ray Ornatrix modifier,…the V-Ray hair info tex map and, of course, the subject…of this video the V-Ray hair material…have all been added in order to help…make the prospect of rendering this…oftentimes tricky subject as easy as possible.…
Now, of course, it has been and is entirely possible…to build a reasonable looking hair…and fur texture using just the standard V-Ray material.…In fact, if I take a render of our scene,…you can see that very thing in action.…The V-Ray fur on our toy bear is entirely readable…and is clearly meant to be fur…even though the V-Ray material applied…has had very little work done to it.…Diffuse color along with some scattered reflections…is about all that we are seeing.…The real problem we have as was the case…with our V-Ray Fast SSS2 Skin Shader…
