Exploring subdivs and the DMC Sampler controls

One thing you may have noticed when you first started using V-Ray for SketchUp is the prolific use of the term subdivs in many parts of the renderer's user interface elements. Understanding what that term refers to and how our numeric subdiv values will affect the quality of our final renders is, in my opinion, an essential piece of the puzzle regarding our ability to use V-Ray for SketchUp in a production environment. Now, as I am going to be talking about the rendering process, I just want to open up the Options Editor for ourselves so we have access to V-Ray's control parameters.

Whenever we start a render in V-Ray, we are really initializing the ray-tracing process. During this, our render engine collects information from our 3D scene by means of rays that are cast and then traced through that environment. Our image sampler, sometimes called anti-aliasing controls, are the ones that actually determine the number of primary or I rays that will be used during this p...
