Best V-Ray settings - Indirect illumination
Hello! We are pleased to share with you a new portion of 3d stuff. Continuing the theme of the correct configuration of V-Ray renderer, in this and the following three tutorials, we look into the second important part of V-Ray settings, the Indirect illumination.
To understand the setups of indirect illumination in V-Ray and any other render engine it is worth to find out what is indirect illumination, and why it is important to photo-realistic rendering.

Using HDRI Maps with VRay and 3ds Max
For most of my rendering work, I use 3ds max 8 and V-Ray 1.5. Although Mental Ray, Brazil, and finalRender all support rendering with HDRIs, I have found V-Ray to be the most intuitive and manageable. However, I will be writing tutorials in the future regarding the use of HDRIs with all the major rendering engines.
Rendering wireframe in V-Ray and Mental Ray
Many of the 3d-artists at least once faced the need or desire to make the wireframe rendering. And they asked questions like: How to render wireframe in V-Ray or Mental Ray? How to perform the isoline render? How to make a shaded mesh rendering? How make a post production to a wireframe rendering? These are the questions this tutorial will answer and will show the easy and usable ways of creating model's mesh renderings.
Lighting and Rendering With Mental Ray
In this beginner's 3ds Max tutorial we're going to illuminate a simple warehouse interior. We'll explore techniques to illuminate the interior through windows only. To keep things simple we'll concentrate on lights that work with Final Gather and leave Global Illumination out of the discussion.
Interior Lighting and Rendering using Vray
This tutorial will cover the interior lighting, materials & rendering (explained color mapping, gamma). This 8 minutes video tutorial will definitely help you.
Simulating Global/Indirect Illumination with Mental Ray
Mental ray, a product of the Mental images, Inc, is the first rendering engine, which simulates the physically correction of the real light and reaction of surfaces to light. Together with Renderman, by PIXAR, mental ray is recognized as an industry-standard rendering software; and has been a major contribution to world-wide design visualization and feature film, including Oscar-awarded.
Making shaded wireframe rendering
The CG tutorial of how to render shaded clay wireframe with isoline mesh in 3ds max using V-Ray or mental ray renderer, and how to perform its compositing with Photoshop or the 3ds Max only with help of black-and-white gradient mask. Many of the 3d-artists at least once faced the need or desire to make the wireframe rendering. And they asked questions like: How to render wireframe in V-Ray or Mental Ray? How to perform the isoline render? How to make a shaded mesh rendering? How make a post production to a wireframe rendering? These are the questions this tutorial will answer and will show the easy and usable ways of creating model's mesh renderings.
How to install and use V-Ray for 3ds Max.
Introduction to Vray rendering. How to download the Demo. How to purchase Vray. How to install Vray. Basic Vray settings. Create a Vray light room. Also Vray materials, and Camera setup for rendering.
There are many different illumination techniques that I teach, on the topic of interior-rendering. This one is quite easy, and will use 2 different kind of lights. One is the MR Spot Light and the other is the photometric Free Area Light. Before we begin, it's very important to inform you that we will use mental ray as a render engine and 3d studio Max 8.
Chair Modeling - Spline Technique
This is a basic tutorial to understand how to use the SPLINES effectively in the field of Interior/Furniture Design. This tutorial is based only on splines. It is very important that your chair has the correct dimensions, otherwise the rendering with Mental Ray will not be optimal.

This tutorial is geared towards showing you how to use the Mental Ray renderer to create really good lighting and skies. First thing we need to do, before we begin, is set Mental Ray as the Rendering engine.
Creating Clay Render with 3ds max 2010 and Mental Ray
In this 3ds Max 2010 video: we’ll take advantage of mental ray’s ProMaterials to create a nice clay render of the interior scene we’ve been working on. By rendering using the technique shown in this video, we can create a clean and clear render that showcases our work in the best light possible, highlighting the depth and details of our modeling work.
Clay render objects in 3ds Max
When you’re just about finished a model in 3ds max, sometimes a quick clay rendering is needed. You might need an early prototype for the model. A clay rendering is very fast (especially compared to Mental Ray or V-Ray, which can take a very long time to render). To set a clay model for rendering, follow the steps below (depending on your version of 3ds max, things might look a bit different).
