Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with displacement, part of SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2.
- One of the big pluses that comes when…working with V-Ray and SketchUp…is of course its ability to create and render…extremely realistic looking materials.…And one common element in the creation…of realistic looking materials…is the use of image files to produce the appearance…of bump, or surface detail in an object.…Whilst bump mapping though is a material effect…that can work well in many instances,…there will be occasions where the fact that…this is a render engine trick,…will become a little too obvious.…On such occasions, especially where the believability…of a material or object is integral to the success…of our project,…we may want to swap bump for displacement mapping.…
Now, initially the two can appear to be very similar,…as they can both make use of greyscale images…in order to produce their particular effect.…The final rendered result however,…will often times show that…what is going on behind the scenes,…is very different indeed.…Whereas bump mapping is just…an optical illusion created by the render engine,…
