Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating occlusion effects, part of SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2.
One of the big challenges facing…any artist creating an interior render…is the capturing of detail that often times…only becomes noticeable because of shadowing in a scene.…Now, rather than shadows created by light sources…what I am referring to here are occlusion shadows,…that is the darkening of a surface…that is caused by its close proximity to another object.…This proximity causes the surface to be somewhat obstructed…or occluded from the general lighting in the environment,…hence the name ambient occlusion.…We have, of course, already seen how difficult…or at least time consuming it can be…to try and pull out small details in the scene…using just the global illumination engines.…
Although certainly that is possible…especially so if we use the Brute Force engine.…A somewhat quicker option that is also available to us…can be found in the options editor.…If we open that up then jump into…the indirect illumination roll-out,…you see that we have an ambient occlusion set of controls.…By default, this option is disabled…
