Find out how to use V-Ray RT in 3ds Max as a bona fide production renderer, even in a compositing-based pipeline with After Effects.
- [Voiceover] Hello there, and welcome to Using V-Ray RT for Production Rendering. My name is Brian Bradley, and I am really looking forward to working with you as we take a look at how we can make use of this powerful lighting and rendering solution for 3ds Max in a basic production-like setting. To get us started, we will take a look in chapter one at some V-Ray RT basics, familiarizing ourselves with just what V-Ray RT is, and how it controls work. But then, from chapter two onward, we will look at using the renderer in a simplified production scenario.
Basically, putting it to use on a mini project of our own that will include camera setup and animation, adding a particle effect, lighting and materials, state set, and render element setup. All, of course, along with creating the final renders, which we will then take into Adobe After Effects, so that we can look at putting our V-Ray render elements to good use in a compositing based approach to production. As we clearly have a lot of material to get through here, let's go ahead and jump right into Using V-Ray RT for Production Rendering.
