Ring Vray wip
show user profile  Alex910

This is my first ring and what I'm trying here to do is to make some as best as possible Vray template materials to use for further such renders, as well the best scene settings. I'm new to vray and if you can tell me your advices and what to change.

So this is the starting frame (the shape is simple... someone told me to render his ring model, but what I'm thinking now is that to add a chamfer, what else would be good?) and how to deal with the noise from the picture.

I use just a vraymtlwrapper for the shadow, a Dome Vraylight and a hdri.
I have no indirect illumination so far.... because the transparent plane won't blend anymore with the background color. How to deal with this if the case.

I'm thinking about some spot lights, will this make the render more interesting (diamond shine)?
The diamonds, they should be lighting the area around them... how to achieve it?

Any advices on what should I do more?

Thank you!

Sorry for the is the file:

Turn on bloom and glare filters - they'l give you the "lighting around the diamonds".

Definitely chamfer the edges of the ring itself.

I would put a bevel/fillet on the edges, you'll catch highlights that way, and the ring won't cut her finger. :D -

Yo Alex. Would you have any use for ring models?

I got screwed out of $80 worth of work by this one guy had me do some rings n' such modeling. If they could be used by you let me know at 9krausec AT gmail Dot com and I'll email them out to you. I charge smiles and high fives though.

Same goes for any of you other MFers. Nothing much but a few ring models and a set of gemstone models.

I'd love to have a go at rendering one or two, purely for the learning experience. I've emailed you. Cheers :)
