Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to this update, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Brian] Hello, and welcome to this update chapter for our V-Ray 3 for 3ds Max Essential Training course. Inside of which, we will take a look at just some of the features that were added to V-Ray for Max in the 3.1 to 3.3 updates, none of which were a part of the release used to record the initial training course. Now, as is always the case with the guys at Chaos Group, even though we are only talking about point releases of the software here, something that is typically used to fix existing bugs in the software, we do have quite a batch of features and tools to take a look at, and of course, as we say, the features covered here are by no means even close to being a complete list of all the new stuff that was added in the 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 releases.
That having been said though, there is still plenty for us to look at and discuss in this update chapter, and so let's get a move on and dive right in.
