Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video The V-Ray Light material, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video, we'll be taking a look at the VRay Light Material.…Now, we have this box set up with a simple VRay material that's set to a blue…diffused color. If we render this frame, we'll see a blue…color, but we'll see shading on that blue as well.…Now, what we'll do is we will create a VRay Light Material, which is found here.…
What this does is it's very similar to Maya's Surface Shader material.…The Surface Shader, as you may or may not know, gives you a flat color.…No matter what the lighting is in the scene, we will go ahead and assign the…light material to the box.
