great work. especially the one with the nails. love the texturing.

01-23-2002, 11:28 AM
wow.. can you share with us a snapshot of Vray settings you are using?

01-23-2002, 11:38 AM
pascal blanché: it´s almost standard setting...just up the quality alittle and set the DOF target length, and i´ve used vray lights.


01-23-2002, 11:40 AM
k. can you tell us a bit about vray lights? do you usually use box or sphere? and the u v w size means what? (don't use them that much as you see ;) )

01-23-2002, 11:46 AM
pascal blanché: I have used sphere on these pics just because it´s more simple i guess :) i havent tested much with it so i guess i dont know more than you really :) i just think it´s missing some usefull setting like shadow density and attienuation.

I tested SSS in vray also, and it´s very cool :)

an dreal focal deformation too (fish eye ;0 ) thx for the help, grat pictures you did there!

01-23-2002, 12:41 PM
that looks come the shadow shows transparency on the ball thingy? evenb though the object is translucent the shadow would be solid...

any idea of times on these?

01-23-2002, 03:05 PM
i like first one... like a miniature set for good old stop motion model-cartoon

01-23-2002, 04:08 PM
Damn.... your work is very cool !!

01-23-2002, 05:09 PM
That nail picture is sweet as... :D

The sunken nail looks really nice - excellent little touches around the wood "fibres"...etc. Superb!

As moojuice said - the shadow on the SSS image looks a little odd, almsot like a skewed reflection... is this normal?

i like the house dude, looks like a photo of maquette, like the little houses behind the rails of electrical hobby trainz.

ultra cool man

sorry, guess I am out of the loop. What is vray? and what package is it for? Those renders look killer.

01-23-2002, 06:42 PM
vRay is a new Renderer for max being developed by Chaotic Dimension.

01-23-2002, 06:48 PM
cool thanks. Maybe its time to re-learn MAX =)

01-23-2002, 06:51 PM
nah....why bother?


01-23-2002, 07:19 PM
you wont regret it Daryl.. you won't !! it is exactly the kind of stuff I was always look for on max.. great renderer , pretty fast, and really easy to use!! boost your picts buddy ;)

helluva nice!

the textures are really sweet. Where do you get the wood textures. Did you make high res photo's yourself?

Mind posting some wireframes?

01-24-2002, 04:00 AM
Gladiool: i made a tutorial on how i made the Saab, so there you have some wireframes. the tutorial can be found on my site
And about the texture, yes i made it myself by puttinga piece of wood in the scanner :)

great pictures grid you did a great job with Vray but I would like to know your render time for each of the images posted and especially the sss images (because it's time consuming to have a fine render...)

thanx a lot grid

01-24-2002, 03:11 PM
mickatt: the house was rendered in 3 hours on a PIII 800mhz
the model saab was rendered in 11 hours on a Dual PIII 733mhz
and the nails i dont have any rendertime on.
And the same goes for that sss pic but it was quite long because i rendered it over night and used very high setting on everything,(so i guessing about 5-7 hours)
but you can get quite good results on fast render setting also.
this pic here was rendered in 5m 23s on the dual 733mhz

01-24-2002, 03:23 PM
Could send me your setting from your map please...

because when I push the subdivs on the glossy param the rendering break down...

and if I have low subdivs the rendering was noisy...

thanx a lot for your fast answer GRID...:)

I'm trying to figure all of this out too,, played with it last night,, got a nice red ball,, but soon as I render one of my cars it broke up into dust particles,,, not sure what I did I started over with basic settings,, with DOF off this time,, and it seems to be working fine,, well not too sure about fine since I'm stuck at work and its rendering at home,, I'll post my results when I figure this out,,,

Did I miss something or are there new lights under the creation tab. I didn't really look,,, just used defalt omni lights and a sky map on the background enviroment... It seems too be pretty quick,,, thanks for all the help.

any screen captures of the menu would be cool,, =D
good stuff GRID,, just crazy

Very impressive renders! Is there any kind of time lock on Vray? Is it similar to Brazil 60 day trial periods? Are all features useable on the release, like SSS, HDR, Caustics?

01-24-2002, 04:56 PM
Found out for myself, Feb 1 2002, less then a couple of weeks to try it out, better than nothing! =)

01-24-2002, 07:38 PM
Mighty impressive. especially the 1st one. Very very good lighting.
i actually thought it was a photo. The nails are also awesome.

01-25-2002, 01:55 AM
