Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Randomization and better translucency, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Given that one…of the hardest things to do in a CG scene…is replicate the oftentimes random nature…of the world around us,…one of the coolest maps added…to V-Ray's arsenal in recent years…was the MultiSubTex map,…a node that with a little bit of setup work…can help add the appearance of randomness to a scene…in a semi-automated way.…Well, the good news for V-Ray artists is…that this extremely versatile map…has now gotten even better.…To show how that can be the case,…lets select all of the objects on our middle…and bottom shelves here…and then after opening up the material editor…using the M key,…let's jump into the override tab…and use a right-click on the material from there…to assign it to our current selection.…
If we were to take a render now of course,…all we would have would be gray objects…sitting on our shelves.…To quickly add some color though,…let's drop a MultiSubTex map onto the work area…and then plug that into the diffuse lot…of the override material.…Now of course if we double-click…to access the map's parameters,…
