Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Surface subdivision rendering, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video, we'll be taking a look at how to render subdivision surfaces so that…objects that look faceted in geometry may render smoothly at render time.…Here in this scene, we have two different objects.…We've got this beach ball that is pretty low tessellation, and we have the arm of…our little catapult here. When it's bent you can start to see a…little bit of subdividing going on at its apex here.…
It's pretty easy to enable subdivision rendering in VRay.…You add a VRay attribute by selecting the object, and in the attribute editor under…it's shape node. Simply go to Attributes > VRay and add…subdivision and also add subdivision and displacement quality.…This will allow you to render the object as a subdivision surface meaning you will…get extra faces which will give you a smoother result, now here in the render…you can see that the ball before its subdivisions is quite segmented and the…arm of the catapult is also fairly segmented.…
So going in to the extra VRay Attributes, once we've added Subdivision and…
