This week is it! The first VRay video tutorial ever! I’ve had enough time to fool around with this renderer to start putting together some thoughts and videos. So far I’m very impressed with how easy it is to get some great effects (almost like Vue Infinite). This Monday Movie will show you how shockingly easy it is to get some nice outdoor lighting in a warehouse model I made for the next few videos. Next week we’ll look at indoor lighting using the area lights, and then we’ll move on to materials.
A few things I’m a little disappointed with in VRay but I’m going to hold off judgement until I’m really certain I have a feel for the product. As it stands, though, I wouldn’t pay $1,000 USD for it. At least not until Chaos Group decides to respond to my e-mail. ;)
