White background with vray?
show user profile  fadmission
I am wondering which part of my vray render setting is causing this dark grey background instead of a white one. I am using 3dsmax 2010 with vray sp4.

Here is the render:

Here are my current settings:

I am aiming to create something like this:

How can I change the grey into white?


P.S. I tried using this (below) and the background appears to be white in the render preview. But when I do the actual render, the background is grey.

Apply a VRaymtlwrapper to the background plane.
Turn on Matte surface
Set Alpha contribution to -1.0
Turn on Shadows and Effect alpha.
Save as a .png file with alpha turned on.
You will now have an image with your can and it's shadow with an alpha channel.
Open in PS and add a white bkgd.
That's how your sample image was done.

Here's a pic:

also depending on how your scene is setup... keep in mind that exposure on your camera will augment the bg as well as the main subject.
