Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding subdivs, part of SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2.
- When working with V-Ray tools such as Lights, Cameras,…Materials, and so on, we will oftentimes come across…a parameter in the UI entitled subdivs,…short for subdivisions.…Understanding what this term refers to…and how the numeric values replace in any subject fields…will affect our renders is a critical V-Ray concept…that we will definitely benefit from taking the time…to understand, especially so if we are coming to V-Ray…after working with other ray trace rendering applications.…
You see, oftentimes when setting up the main image…sampling or eye ray controls in a ray trace renderer,…we will possibly have gotten used to setting up…an anti-aliasing quality level that is described…in terms of the number of samples per pixel…that we want the engine to use,…typically by means of a simple numeric value…that describes the total possible number…of samples that can be used.…What we need to be able to be aware of in V-Ray however…is that rather that setting the specific number of samples…to be used when rendering, the subdivs parameter instead…
