Creating diffuse surfaces

Creating diffuse surfaces: SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray

In programs such as SketchUp, "diffuse" refers to a simulation of the way surfaces respond to light. When you put this in practice, you'll find it indicates the color and shading grades that appear on an object's surface in the 3D design. Google SketchUp's V-Ray system lets you use pre-made files to represent standard materials such as stone, tweaking them to your specific needs. Find out more about creating diffuse surfaces in this online video.
