Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Aerial perspective, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Whenever the term aerial perspective is…mentioned in connection with rendering art photography,…most people would probably think of shots that involved…distant mountains being obscured…by a lovely purple-blue haze,…which of course is a visual clue…telling us that what we're looking at…is actually quite far away.…Well, whilst aerial perspective can certainly…be used to create shots like that,…we're going to show how it works here…using this much more enclosed courtyard type space…because even on renders like this…the aerial perspective tool can be put…to good use if we so desire.…
As noted then in V-Ray's online documentation,…the V-Ray aerial perspective tool…essentially mimics the effects of the Earth's atmosphere…on objects when viewed from a distance,…producing an effect that is similar…in many ways to fog or haze.…The effect works with the V-Ray sun and sky in a scene…in order to calculate an approximation…of this atmospheric effect.…Now we say approximation because an aerial perspective…can't currently produce anything like…
