Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video V-Ray Sun and Sky, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video, we're going to take a look at how to light this oil rig using the…VRay Sun and Sky system. Or as with most lights in VRay, you go to…Create menu to create them. The Sun and Sky lives in the Render…Settings > VRay tab > V-Ray Sun and Sky rollout.…You'll see options to create a sun and a sky, as well as delete them.…These icons allow you to adjust the nodes, once you've created them.…
Let's go ahead and create a sun. In our viewport, we will see this locator,…which gives you the angle of the sun. And in the outlining/g, you'll see we have…a transform node, which is used for positioning and orienting the light.…And we have the actual sun light attributes, we can access through the…GeoSun node. (SOUND).…
Lets take a quick look at a render of this scene, and you'll see that it's completely…blown out. Making sure we have the GeoSun selected I…have access to the intensity multiplier which I will turn (SOUND) way down.…We'll go to a very low number, put this in the buffer, and go ahead and render this out.…
