Vray and Linear Workflow
show user profile  Jock
I've been wondering about doing this for a very long time but never really seem to get round to it, and always seem to question myself as to the difference it will make.

Out of curiosity, what do all the other vray users on the forum use, do you guys have the gamma set to 2.2 and all the other bits that come with it like linear colour mapping etc, or are you using other methods?

I'm just curious whether i really should be implementing this on all my future jobs or not if i9ts worthwhile.

I'm not using Vray, but yes you should implement it into your workflow. I recommend that you read these... http://www.aversis.be/tutorials/vray/essential_gamma_01.htm

Almost forgot about this one...

If you are not using LWF you are essentially doing it wrong, that's the way I see it.

Great tutorial on setting it up with Vray.

Once you change, you wont look back. :)

Edit..

Curses! Too Late!! :(

Cheers guys, i'll get it sorted.

I've had the websites linked on my faviroutes now for some time and had a play about now and then but i need to finally set it up and run with it.

Thanks

LWF isn't a must and you aren't necessarily doing it wrong if you dont use it.

it's another tool in the artist's armoury that can make a realistically lit image easier to come by for some. it doesn't improve imagery per se at all. it's how the artist uses it or doesn't use it. a good artist can easily for go it and still produce imagery much better than the next guy who does use it.
