Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to V-Ray-specific materials: Part 1, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- When it comes to outputting higher quality images…from a render engine, one of the things we have to recognize…is that a lot of the finish quality,…a lot of the power and functionality…housed in our engine of choice,…still comes from the materials and maps…that have been written specifically for it.…Or final renders would be no where near as appealing…nor convincing where it not for…these engine specific materials.…V-Ray, of course, being no exception to this rule,…which is why it installs with a number…of it's own material and map types,…all of which have been designed to help us quickly…and easily recreate complex, real world materials.…
Not that we need to us all of the available materials…and maps on every project that we work on, of course.…But, given that familiarity with the options available to us…will open up possibilities, what we want to do is…spend the next two videos just familiarizing ourselves…with the various V-Ray material types…that are made available in SketchUp.…Perhaps getting a quick idea of some uses…
