Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Full Light Select Element, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Instructor] If you are a V-Ray lighting artist…who regularly needs to output scene data…for later use in a compositing package,…then you will probably already have been making good use…of the V-Ray Light Select Element,…an image or sequence of images that can be used to isolate…and then work on either individual or groups of lights,…giving compositing artist the ability…to alter both white color and intensity…as they like in post-production.…What we now have though is a new mode…added to the Light Select Element that allows us…to provide full output for all lighting related information…in the scene.…
So, direct light, GI, SS, reflection,…refractions, and so on.…There are a couple of caveats in that this can only be used…when the environment itself is set to black,…with no environment override in play,…and with no self-illuminating materials in the scene…as they can't be added as contributing light sources…to the V-Ray Light Select Render Element.…Caustics also are not included in the calculation…of the element although we do need to bear in mind…
