Who is this meant for ?As the name implies this is mainly aimed at people who are working in the architectural visualization and are using Vray for rendering. The video was recorded in 3ds Max, but if you are using a different platform and have Vray you could take what you learn here and use it in your software.
What do i need to know in order to follow along ?You will need to have a basic functioning understanding of the 3ds Max and Vray user interface. Provided you do know that you will be all set as all of the options that we will be using will be explained in the videos.
What is covered in this course ?In this course we will go over the lighting setup for multiple lighting scenarios which cover:
Setting Up A Daylight Environment
Lighting Using Light Portals
Setting Up a Sunlight Scenario
- Setting Up HDRI lighting
- Multiple Types of Artificial Light Fixtures
- Understanding All About Global Illumination
- Adding Details to Your Scenes with the help of lights
- Using Light Environment Effects to make your scenes more interesting
What do i need to follow this tutorial ?
In order to be able to follow along you will need to have 3ds Max and Vray installed. The videos were made with 3ds Max 2018 version but you can open the scenes as further back as 3ds Max 2011. The Vray version that was used was 3.6 so if you are using an older version spanning all the way back to 3.0 nothing should be different. In case you are using an older 2.x version of Vray then there will be different options set at different locations that you will have to find in the menu.
(Highly advisable to upgrade to 3.x version)
