Maya/Mental Ray: Portal Lights. Understanding Final Gather. September 18, 2015 4:00 am Mark Masters Final Gather can be found in just about all of the most common render engines and is an essential step in creating realistic renders that closely mimic how light interacts with objects in the real-world.

With that in mind, let’s go over Final Gather, how it works and where it can be implemented into your next render. What is Final Gather? In the real world a lot of the light that you see is the direct result of indirect illumination (e.g., light that isn’t coming directly from a source like a light bulb). To calculate its results, Final Gather points are cast out onto any surface in the camera view.

How is Final Gather different from global illumination? Lightmap Workflow, Part 2: Architectural Lighting | RedFrame. The above is an in-game screenshot demonstrating externally baked linear space lightmaps rendered in Unity Previous article: Lightmap Workflow, Part 1: UV Generation Background RedFrame is meant to be a highly atmospheric and immersive experience. To create this atmosphere, it was important for us to focus on lighting. Many games have compelling lighting, however they tend to be outdoor environments lit by a single directional source representing the sun. I struggled for many months to achieve a look that I really liked. This is a workflow for Maya and Mental Ray, but the concepts are universal. Correct falloff / Gamma CorrectionPhysically accurate soft shadowsDistribution / PhotometryColor temperatureIndirect light Once you understand these concepts, you will have a non-software specific checklist to use in creating your interior setup.

Correct Falloff / Gamma Correction For many years working in 3d, I was told that real-world light had a quadratic falloff. Physically Accurate Soft Shadows. Optimizing Final gather settings for various scenarios | Enviral Design. Final gather can be tricky business. I’ve seen most scenes that come my way have 100% default final gather settings, or inefficient settings. It’s not surprising, the settings are quite non intuitive. Mentalray was written with more of an engineering mindset than an artist one I believe, which at first is really convoluted. Given time though, and some explanations for the most important of settings, one can setup a render with confidence that they will not have to re render because of the dreaded FG flicker. The point of this post is NOT to delve into every aspect, but to follow the 80/20 rule and point out the things that make the biggest difference, and explain how THOSE things work in relation to your typical scene scenarios.

If you’re not looking for analogy’s and explanations, skip the below bit and scroll down further for some tried and true base line settings you can start using now. Default settings If our accuracy is set to 100, that’s 100 darts thrown, each of 10,000 times. Introducing mental ray for Maya 2016 Render Settings | Inside mental ray. This is the first in a series of posts on mental ray for Maya 2016 Render Settings Introduction We significantly changed the mental ray for Maya 2016 Render Settings User Interface (UI) in order to reduce time spent adjusting renders. The defaults aim for no-fuss rendering of the most frequently used and up-to-date features.

Of specific note, our newest Global Illumination (GI) mode significantly increases ease-of-use and productivity. We provide almost everything a user needs here within this UI. Goals Members of both NVIDIA ARC and Autodesk, including UI designers and developers, collaborated to make this change significant. Enable complete rendering without requirement to adjust or enable most settings. We also want to retain the flexibility of mental ray for production users.

Render Settings Tabs We re-organized the mental ray Render Settings into four main tabs: The Quality tab contains quality settings for controlling sampling. Quality Settings This controls samples across a scene. 42 mighty Maya tutorials to try today. Autodesk Maya is one of the go-to packages for serious 3D artists, with its advanced tools and high-end plugins, this software is capable of creating some incredible impressive 3D art to add to your design portfolio.

How to design an animated hero Scott Raymond shares his process for animating Bink, a curious little seafaring creature, for Eric Miller Animation Studios' web series. His challenge was to make the most appealing introduction to the character as possible, in just a short amount of time, incorporating Eric Miller's vision and existing setups, while trying to define Bink's unique personality. 02.

Creating different environments is exciting, but to make them believable it's key to study your references. 03. This free Maya tutorial video by Shane Whittington will teach you all the basics of Maya 2016, starting with the tools and user interface. 04. 06. 07. Mayalounge.com • Afficher le sujet - Linear Workflow. Hop voici mon explication que je mettrais à jour plus tard car là tout n'est pas en bon français et puis manque des trucs ... Je pense créer un tit pdf par la suite avec d'autres trucs sur les portal light dont je ne parle pas par exemple mais également d'autres trucs qui peuvent être intéressant Sources ... art-i. La théorie Avant de voir comment faire un workflow linéaire, il me semble d’abord important de comprendre ce que c’est et à quoi ça sert.

Je vais faire des raccourcis mais cela me semble utile. Le principe c’est qu’un ordinateur fonctionne de manière linéaire, c'est-à-dire de manière mathématique (2*100 = 200). L’œil humain lui ne fonctionne pas de manière linéaire. On voit bien que la version de gauche qui est dans un espace linéaire rend plus 3d et non naturel que la version de droite qui elle est en standard RGB. Linear Color Workflow(s) in Maya – Part 1: Maya Tools | elemental ray. I previously explained the sRGB color space here: Color space and Your Screen Now I will talk about ways to render your images correctly from inside Maya. Renderers operate in linear color space. Their color calculations are designed such that 2+2 = 4 in a direct fashion without applying curves, etc to the color inputs and outputs.

Here are a few reasons you will need to understand this and appreciate it. Color correct workflow insures that your result is predictable.Color decisions can be made in each phase without major disruption since you aren’t using your 3D package in a way 2D software is best suited.Viewing your textures as you create them in the correct color space will have a consistent result when you output them. There are two main ways to deal with this situation inside Maya. The first is possibly the easiest. I’m going to assume a few things (I know assuming is bad, but hey, gotta start somewhere.) 1. 2. 3. Basically: 1. Let’s use Maya to help us this time. Maya Render Settings. Easy Linear Workflow in Maya Tutorial | Cambrand Designs 3D Blog. Zap's mental ray tips.
