Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a light cache solution, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- In this video, we're going to be working,…once again, with our (mumbles) scene…in order to create another GI solution,…this time, using V-Ray's Light Cache Engine,…using, of course, the same basic procedure…as with our previous irradiance mapping exercise.…First thing we want to do, then, is…open up the options editor, and in the GI rollout,…set Light cache to be our primary bounce engine…whilst once again, setting the Secondary engine to None.…Now, the default Light cache settings…that we have, as with the irradiance mapping,…are designed to give us a fairly decent level…of quality from the system,…although, of course, the settings here…are assuming that we are using light cache…in its more suitable role as a secondary bounce engine.…
If we go ahead and take a render, though,…we will see a couple of things.…Firstly, that we do get a very high level…of illumination in our render,…certainly much brighter than was the case…with our initial irradiance map only solution.…This is because light cache rays,…like their parent technology, photons,…
