3ds Max V-Ray


Hello and welcome to V-Ray 2.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training. My name is Brian Bradley, and I am going to be guiding you through this breakdown of the essential tools and features found in the V-Ray for 3ds Max Render engine. In this course, we will show you how to install and set up V-Ray as well as locate V-Ray tools and controls in the 3ds Max UI. We will look at some of the V-Ray specific light types available to us, and we will break down V-Ray's versatile Global Illumination engines.

We will make use of the all-important V-Ray material to re-create some useful material types, such as cloth, reflective metals, and glass, and then we'll put some of V-Ray's effects tools to work creating powerful in-render effects, such as Depth of Field, Motion Blur, and Caustics. If you're ready to build up your rendering skills, let's go ahead and dive right in.
