Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of V-Ray: Control Color Bleed in 3ds Max.
- [Instructor] Although I will do my very best to keep you informed as to tool locations and keyboard shortcuts that I will be making use of as we work through this course, I will nevertheless be assuming that you are reasonably familiar with both 3ds Max and the V-Ray renderer itself. If you are new to these software applications, and so need to learn the basics, as it were, before feeling comfortable about working through this course, then I would strongly recommend checking out some of the informative 3ds Max and V-Ray courses that can already be found here on Lynda.com, courses such as my V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training, and Using V-Ray RT in Production Rendering.
All the skills that you may find useful as you work through this course would include any knowledge of working with a render engine inside a 3-D application, be that 3ds Max or indeed any piece of modeling, lighting, and rendering software.
