3D Rendering with Vray 3.2 for SketchUp and Rhino 5
In just 3 short hours, Jorge Barrero of HKS will teach you to use Vray for SketchUp and Vray for Rhino. With Vray, not only can you create beautiful renderings almost indistinguishable from a photograph, but you can create them FAST.
You will learn things like:
- Applying Materials in Vray for SketchUp
- Antialiasing Settings
- Casting Shadows with Vray Sun Settings
- Adding Reflection Glossiness
- Bringing Rendered Channels into Photoshop
- Camera and Environment Options
- Indirect Illumination and Irradiance Map Options in Rhino
- Creating a Clear Glass Material
First you will explore the Vray software interface and learn how to set up your initial project, including bringing in a 3d model, setting up lights and cameras, and creating materials. Then, you will learn how to render out your model, including how to utilize render settings and how to tweak those settings to get your rendered image ready for post production. Finally, you will look at post processing techniques including bringing your rendered image into Photoshop for post production, utilizing rendered channels, adding real world images, and compositing effects.
When you are done with this course, you will have a good understanding of the process for creating a photo-realistic rendering that can be used for communicating your ideas in presentations. You will know how to bring a 3D model into Vray for Sketchup 2016 and Rhino 5, render it out, and touch it up in Photoshop to give your final image a professional finesse.
