Recording Length: 18 Hours
This training course is designed for users with less than 12 months of production experience in V-Ray. All major features within VRay 2.0 are explained through an easy to understand approach. Rather than providing a list of good settings, which may work on some scenes and not others, the instructor dissects each major setting and explains the math and reasoning behind the settings so that students will know how to troubleshoot any scene and get the best mixture of speed and quality. All settings fall into 3 categories; quality settings, appearance settings, and tools. The instructor shows students how to maximize quality by controlling noise and improving detail, while simultaneously minimizing render times. The artistic side of the program comes to life with an explanation of the settings that control the appearance of renderings, as well as an explanation of various exterior and interior lighting techniques.
Finally, all of the incredible tools within the program are illustrated in great detail so that students can make the most out of program and maximize efficiency. This training course requires an fundamental level of knowledge of 3ds Max. The V-Ray renderer is a plug-in that allows 3ds Max users to bypass the default scanline renderer and achieve truly photorealistic quality with minimal effort. Because of its unsurpassed quality, speed, and ease of use, V-Ray has rapidly become the industry's renderer of choice in the lighting of architectural visualizations, and is also a favorite among film and game producers. Training class covers V-Ray 1.5 SP4 with most support files provided in Max 2009 or earlier.
