Lynda – SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2
V-Ray is a very popular and high-quality third-party renderer for SketchUp. With V-Ray, you can add naturalistic lighting, cameras, reflections, and diffuse materials to your SketchUp models and scenes. This course will use a single arch viz scene (an architectural visualization with interior and exterior elements) to demonstrate all of these options. Author Brian Bradley covers all of the V-Ray light types (from Sun and Sky to Sphere), irradiance mapping, physical cameras, materials, and V-Ray quality controls. By the end of the course, you’ll know how to use V-Ray features to make your SketchUp models look their very best.
