FREE Vray Tutorial - Vray rollouts explained: a basic overview Caustics are light patterns formed by refracted/reflected light. Take a look at the rendered image, these are caustics. There are two types of caustics: GI caustics and direct light caustics. Creating a realistic wood material with V-Ray - Max Underground Introduction We are going to look at some real world photos of antique wood, analyze the main features and use some advanced material creation techniques to re-create that look with V-Ray. Instead of unwrapping all the objects and painting custom maps for them, we are going to use a procedural approach. This method is quicker and the resulting material can be re-used in other projects. The result is also very flexible – since I’ll be using a layered approach, I can turn off or modify features like worn edges or dust. This tutorial is not meant to just show you how to create wood, it’s also meant to show you how you can achieve complex results using some simple V-Ray and 3DS Max maps.

Skymedias - Blog Content Glass Rendering Tutorial with Vray in 3dsmax Author: Jan Rybar Software: 3dsmax, VRay Author Website: ImagesFX Our work is primarily artistically oriented – we are given plans and sketches, and we are entrusted with the task of making great imagery and movies. Occasionally however, based on the evolution of our software (renderers), clients are requesting for more realism-based images. Material examples The Rougness parameter The Reflection color parameter The Reflection glossiness parameter The Energy preservation mode The Fresnel option The Anisotropy parameter The Anisotropy rotation parameter The Refraction color parameter The Refraction glossiness parameter The Refraction IOR parameter The Refraction depth parameter The refraction Exit color parameter The Fog color parameter The Fog multiplier parameter The BRDF type The Roughness parameter This example demonstrates the effect of the Roughness parameter. Note how as the Roughness increases, the materials appears more "flat" and dusty. The Reflection color parameter This example demonstrates how the Reflection color parameter controls the reflectivity of the material.

I thought this was just too gooder process not to share so have decided to put together the following tutorial taking people through these steps he explained so VRay will hopefully become less complicated, and so you can better critique what is happening within your scenes. The real core of this is every scene is different and has different requirements in terms of detail resolution and Global Illumination. There are many settings posted on the web (I have done a few myself) outlining suitable settings for VRay, and much debate over which setting is best. So here are the steps:
Exponential and linear colour mapping in Vray Within Vray there are various processes and tools that we use to generate what we would consider to be a realistic rendered image. Options such as tone mapping, light intensity and camera exposure are fully configurable and can be moulded into what a 3D visualiser would name as their workflow. There are no right or wrong processes as they all lead to the same goal, to produce a high quality render. If you choose not to use a linear workflow, it may not be physically correct in terms of light intensity but it might look correct and is therefore acceptable.
