Using VRay 2.10.01 in MAX 2012 -64 what is the advantage to using VRay's camera as opposed to MAX's regular camera?

means you can get greater flexibility over the final shot. it's the same as using a real photo lens.

I haven't used the camera in max in ages, but, if you are rendering with vray, use a vray camera. They are meant to be used in conjunction with eachother.

And the controls are all based on a real camera too. With the vray cam you can change things like ISO, shutter speed, F-stop as well as many more! This not only gives you an extra level of realism, but can also help when doing motion tracking work (can match the virtual camera up and the camera that you used, pretty easily)!

If you have access to using the Vray Cam, use the vray cam.

I use both depending on the project. Use Like 9k said, use vray cam if you have the choice, from memory it comes with a few extra tools.

Same with lights, I find the standard direct/spot lights are great with vray, and fast too. Just depends on the look and pipeline. Sooo many tools in max do the same thing in a different way, youl find your way.

Having taken a second closer look (prompted by this thread) I can see the advantages. I'm an avid 35mm photographer so things like ISO, shutter speed, etc.,make sense to me. Dumb question I guess.

Thanks for all the replies... i see the light.
