Compositing V-ray Render Layers in Photoshop

Compositing V-ray Render Layers in Photoshop
In this tutorial Ahmed Fathi takes a look at how to composite together V-ray render layers using blending-modes and masks in Photoshop. Once completed, this process allows you to change or tweak any aspect of your image in seconds without having to re-render a thing! Ahmed also covers a few extra post production techniques such as Chromatic Aberration and Depth Of Field, as well as how to emulate a Cross-processed look. Republished Tutorial Every few weeks, we revisit some of our reader's favorite posts from throughout the history of the site. Additional Files/ Plugins:Download the Project Files for this tutorial Step 1 As this is a compositing tutorial, not a lighting/rendering tutorial, I'll assume that you have at least a basic knowledge of V-ray, and that you are able to render out your own scenes already. In order to make V-ray render out the different layers, we first have to enable them in the V-ray Render Elements tab within the Render Settings window. Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5

Introduction to Vray Part 1 – Lighting « macdesignstudio As it’s getting close to finals in architecture schools across the USA, I felt it was a good idea to create a small tutorial to help all those students pulling their hair out because of rendering issues. In this tutorial, I hope to shed some light (literally) on some of the nuances to my favorite render engine. This tutorial is based on the course that I taught while I was a student at Washington University from 2008-2010. I have modeled this scene in Rhino and will be using VRay for Rhino, but rest assured that these are basics that translate across programs, so if you’re using VRay for Sketchup or 3ds Max, the fundamentals are the same, I simply used an existing model I created in Rhino. I will start with an interior model, with furniture and windows. The initial model from Rhino The next major step is to place lights in the scene. The next step is to add rectangular lights at the openings to supplement the sunlight system. Light Multiplier settings: Visible Light vs. One sided vs.

Escenas para crear video en Sketchup Tutorial: How to render extra huge output image without crashing in Vray SketchUp I have encountered these following questions "My client wanted me to print A0 size paper with nice quality, how can I do it?" Today I receive this from one of the follower with my Nomeradona Facebookpage "Nomeradona, I am working on a Google SketchUp 3D Floor Plan, and trying to Render it in Vray. I am able to Render it at (800x600), but I run out of ram, when I tried to output the (4000x3000 dpi) file size. In this case, what shall we do? This is an old Sketchup file which I did almost four years ago. Step 1: The output size I have rendered before more than 8000px width x 4000px spherical panorama render which I used for this Virtual reality post. Step 2: IR passes Since the image is huge, you don't need that high min/max rate. Step 3: VRImage output. Step 4: Preview Image. Once done, the image file will be written to the assigned folder that you have chosen. Open Photoshop and load the exr file Step 5: Converting the Gamma 2.2 to Gamma1.0 Vray SU by default uses gamma 2.2. Nomeradona

3ds Max Tutorial | Preparing an AutoCAD drawing for 3D by Ian Ibbotson Introduction It is extremely important to prepare an AutoCAD drawing taking into consideration two main issues The drawing should be organised and drawn so as not to compromise the production drawing. This means that it should be drawn in a manner that benefits both the AutoCAD outputs and the 3D outputs. This tutorial explains the main issues to consider when drawing in AutoCAD and preparing a drawing for use in 3D work Download Sample Data (583kb) Top of page Layers and Drawing Methods Organisation of all elements that are to be used in 3D using layers is vital as well as a good knowledge of clean, accurate drawing methods for 3D work. The correct drawing method (which is easier) produces a good looking and accurate result in 3D Clean and Simplify Drawing Before using an AutoCAD drawing for importing into MAX/VIZ only those elements that are going to be used for 3D work need keeping in the drawing.

Archpaintvisuals Deyan Sudjic on the Ground Zero memorial | Art and design | The Observer When Maya Lin won the competition to design America's national memorial to its Vietnam war dead 20 years ago, nobody could have foreseen that this painfully young architecture student from Yale was, for better or worse, going to usher us all into a whole new era of monument-making. Even now with New York struggling to decide how best to honour the memory of the victims of the World Trade Centre attacks, she is proving to be a decisive voice. The black granite walls, free of eagles or insignia, that she proposed to cut into the grass of Washington's Mall were a decisive break with the way things used to be done. They seemed to many at the time to be shockingly abstract. Indeed, long before that folksy populist Ross Perot ran for President, he led a bitter campaign against her plan, arguing for something, as he saw it, more impressive and more martial. Everywhere, abstraction and minimalism became the unavoidable language of the monument. This kind of thing is usually called public art.

First place was awarded to Brooklyn, NY’s studio a+i: Mateo Paiva, Lily Lim, John Thurtle, Insook Kim, and Esteban Erlich, with a rendering by Guillaume Paturel, for their design “Infinite Forest.” The design was selected from 475 entries submitted between November 29, 2011 and January 21, 2012, representing more than 26 U.S. states and 32 countries on six continents. “The proposed AIDS Memorial Park commemorates the past while embracing the present and the future,” said Jury Chair Michael Arad, Partner, Handel Architects and Designer of The National September 11 Memorial. Christopher Tepper and Paul Kelterborn, co-founders of the AIDS Memorial Park Coalition, envisioned the design competition as inspiration for an AIDS Memorial Park that seamlessly integrates park and memorial features.

mental ray & VRay tutorials: Correcting the Viewport colour display of imported AutoCAD drawings, when added into a Layer in 3Ds Max Often, imported AutoCad drawings lose their original colour once added into a new layer (using “Manage Layers” toolbar) in 3Ds Max. This “glitch” usually frustrates numerous users for a number of reasons, as colour coded drawings help to quickly understand the design and to easily “select by colour” any given layer/s of the relevant drawing in the 3Ds Max scene. After countless requests to post an article/tutorial on how to correct this problem, I have finally managed to put something together with help of a prolific script writer/ senior Visualiser/Photographer called David Venables.David created a simple script to override the above mentioned problem! I have had the pleasure to meet and continue to work with David while at AVR London. Without further ado let us start by importing an AutoCAD file format (i.e. With the DWG file imported into Max, the next step is to quickly create a simple script and apply it.
