Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the glazing, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- Given that transparent or refractive material,…such as glass and water,…are likely to figure, in one form or another,…in many of the projects that we undertake…as a rendering artist, it would seem like a good idea…to take a look at how we might best go about…creating one; in this instance,…a basic or generic glass shader, that we will apply…to the glazing geometry on our building.…With the Material Editor open then,…let's right-click on the Scene Materials label,…and create a new V-Ray material.…Given that we won't be adding any bump or…displacement to this material,…the lack of matt controls won't cause us…any problem in this instance, although…if we wanted to add a little bit of undulation…to the glass surface, for an extra touch of realism,…we could just as easily add a V-Ray BRDF layer…to the top of a standard materials layer stack,…and then follow the same steps that we will perform here.…
We do want to give a name to our material,…so let's double-click the New Default Material…entry in the list, or we could have, of course,…
