Need help with understanding Vray?
show user profile  9krausec
Ok, so since I started using Vray I have been learning at an extremely slow pace through trial and error.. I have used the Vray Guide on the web, but I have now found a site that pulls it all together in a very nice format...

Please take a look at this link. I have been studying it extensively and taking some major notes on it... It boasts giving great universal settings for vray and although I disagree with having "Universal Settings" as a end all solution, the explanation of all the bells of whistles of Vray makes this resource a GREAT place to start off understanding ChoasGroup's amazing Vray render system..

dont trust everything you read on the internet.

Great... Well at least they explain some stuff, hopefully with accuracy.. Besides the Vray Manual, do you have any other resources that you would like to share that sort of brings Vray together a bit more?

Edit: Thanks for catching that bolts. I personally don't know a whole lot about Vray and it's settings, but it just seemed like this was a well put together resource... Meh, that sucks, I was really hoping for the best on this one.

Just take into consideration what bolts said, take this with a grain of salt... If anything, use it as a resource that teaches you what the settings do, not really so much the appropriate settings for a great render!!

I don't want to be responsible for leading anyone down the wrong trail or anything.

hardly down the wrong trail but i personally see no point in trying to do things outside of the way professional productions are run.

for example... that guide mentions that you should leave "affect sampling only" in the color mapping rollout off when you switch the gamma to 2.2

you should always leave it on. one of these days i'll do a write up on how things are done in the industry for the part of it i work with on a daily basis. that plus others doing the same in similar positions would lead to what i've wanted to start up as maxU.
