Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2.
- Although I will, for the duration of this course be doing my best to keep you informed as to twolocations and keyboard short cuts that I make use of, inside of SketchUp, I will still, to a certain extent, be assuming that you are at least familiar with the basics of using the application. If you are new to SketchUp, and so need to learn how to master the basics, before you are able to continue working through our SketchUp 'Rendering with V-RAY 2' course, then I would strongly recommend you check out some of the really informative SketchUp courses that can already be found here on 'lynda.com'.
Perhaps focusing, first of all, on any essential training titles. In order to easily access the model and texture files contained in the exercise files download that you may have access to, there is a little bit of application set up that you may want to run through with me in order to help make things run a little more smoothly. From the 'Window' menu then, let's open up our 'System's Preferences' dialogue, and from the 'File' section, point, at the very least, our 'Models', and 'Texture Images' folders, to the, 'Exercise Files' folder, which in my case, has been placed on my computer's Desktop.
A few other skills that you may find it useful to have under your belt as you work through this course, would include, Photography, and it's general principles, but with a particular focus on photographic lighting and exposure, as well of course of knowledge of working with any other rendering engines, whether that be inside of SketchUp or indeed any 3D application.
