Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the fixed-rate engine, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- Having already taken a somewhat brief look at…image sampling theory in chapter one of our course,…what we want to do here is move on to an examination…of V-Ray's image sampling engines themselves,…taking a look at the controls and parameters…that each of them make available to us.…The scene that we will be working with consists of…a fairly innocuous looking setup, that does neverthless…present a number of fairly typical rendering challenges…to our image sampling engines.…We have plenty of straight lines in the scene,…both in terms of materials and on the geometry itself.…
These of course can be the bane…of pixel-based graphic applications.…We have both glossy and blurred reflections on the materials…as well as noisy surface patterns and flat, solid colors.…We're making use of the V-Ray dome light in the scene…using the default shadow "Subdiv" setting of eight,…which can of course throw a lot…of shadow noise into an environment,…with the potential for noise having been heightened…by the fact that we are also using…
