Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of V-Ray: Control Color Bleed in SketchUp.
- [Brian] Although I will do my best to keep you informed regarding tool locations and keyboard shortcuts that we will make use of as we work through this course, I will, nevertheless, be assuming that you are reasonably familiar with both SketchUp and the V-Ray rendering. If you are new to these software applications and so need to learn the basics, as it were, before feeling comfortable about working through this course then I would strongly recommend checking out some of the informative SketchUp and V-Ray courses that can already be found here on Lynda.com.
Course such as George Maestri's SketchUp Essential Training series, and my own SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2 course. For the skills that you may find useful as you work through this course, would include any knowledge of working with V-Ray inside a 3D application, be that in SketchUp or indeed any piece of modeling, lighting, and rendering software.
