Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Shadows, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya.
In this video we'll be taking a look at some of the shadow elements coming out of V-Ray.…We can see the diffuse pass for a render here, and we'll take a look at the raw…light pass. Baking into these passes for lighting and…V-Ray is the shadow it is calculated within the lighting pass so it is not a…separate pass. When you take the raw light and you…multiply it on top of the diffuse, you get your lighting which is pretty much the…lighting pass. Let's go ahead and leave the raw light and…the diffuse out of it, and we'll start right here with the lighting.…
Of course we have the 2.2 gamma conversion on all of these as well.…We'll ad the GI pass for the little bump and light that we get.…Here's the beauty turning on and off. Obviously, this has reflection, refraction…and specular added on to it, but the luminance and brightness of the scene is…within our total lighting. The shadow pass generated out of the array…looks like this, which looks like an inverted shadow.…
It may seem a little strange, but if you take that shadow pass and you put it on as…
