Learn The Best New Features of V-Ray

V-Ray 6 is a powerful tool that has revolutionized the industry, and this course will cover all the essential aspects of using it, including lighting, materials, and advanced techniques for creating photorealistic renderings. The course will also explore V-Ray's new features, such as the updated user interface, the new Cosmos model and presets library, the new real time VR Vision app, and new generative tools like scatter for creating highly detailed environments.

Key New Features of V-Ray 6:

  • Chaos Cosmos: Offers a library of 3D models, including furniture, vegetation, and props to enhance scene creation.
  • Real-Time Rendering: Provides real-time ray tracing for faster and more accurate previews of scenes.
  • AI Denoiser: Uses AI to remove noise from renderings quickly and efficiently.
  • Scene Intelligence: Uses AI to automatically optimize the scene and adjust the settings to improve the rendering quality and speed.
  • Adaptive Dome Light: Improves the lighting quality and reduces the render times by using an adaptive sampling technique.
  • V-Ray Vision: A real-time visualization tool that provides an interactive preview of the scene, allowing users to explore their designs in real-time

Important workflows you will learn in V-Ray 6:

  1. How to set up a variety of scene types: This involves creating the 3D model and adding materials, textures, lights, and cameras to the scene.

  2. How to fine-tune materials and lighting: Once the scene is set up, it's essential to fine-tune the materials and lighting to achieve the desired look. V-Ray provides many tools for adjusting the properties of materials and lights, such as color, reflectivity, transparency, and more.

  3. How to optimize the scene & elements: V-Ray provides several tools to optimize the scene, such as adaptive lights and image-based lighting. These tools help to reduce the render times while maintaining the quality of the output.

  4. How to perfect scene renders with local and cloud tools: Once the scene is set up and optimized, it's time to render the final output. V-Ray provides several rendering options, including CPU and GPU rendering, distributed rendering, and network rendering.

  5. How to Post-process and refine the output: After rendering, the final output may need to be post-processed to enhance its quality further. V-Ray provides many options for post-processing, such as color correction, compositing, and denoising.

  6. How to use tools such as scatter and cosmos components: Placing crowds and vegetation with new V-Ray features like Cosmos and Scatter is natural.
