V-Ray for 3D Max Advanced2018-08-24T12:13:35+00:00

V-Ray for 3ds Max is the core development of Chaos Group, which allows users to quickly
and easily create realistic images while giving them full control over the 3D production
V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max is the most complete lighting, shading and rendering toolkit on the
market, making speed and simplicity accessible to all artists. The latest version delivers
powerful feature set, technical advances and support for open source technologies.
In this course, participants learn how to use V-Ray in 3DS Max to create photorealistic and
artistic scenes: Exterior, Interior Day Rendering, and Interior Night Rendering. They will learn
key techniques such as:
● Linear and Physical Workflow
● Lighting Workflow
● Using and Adjusting the V-Ray Physical Camera
● In-depth Global Illumination
● Image Sampling
● Advance V-Ray Materials
● Render Elements
● Network Rendering
Architects, interior designers, decorators, graphic designers, artists, animators, TV graphic
designers, art directors and anyone who is interested in creating 3D presentations. This course
provides the base knowledge for higher level courses such as Vray, Max Modeling, Max
Animation, Lighting, Vue xStream, etc.
