Instead I will show you the settings and workflow that work for me everyday in the studio. I’ll teach you what you should be focusing 99% of your time on to create amazing renders with the greatest amount of ease.” says Ian.

This tutorial is recorded using VRay for Maya but the same concepts and settings apply to any other 3D software package like 3ds Max and Modo.Another noteworthy release are Ian’s free Lighting Scenes for VRay and Arnold. Included in this pack are a variety 10 different lighting rigs for Maya, 3ds Max, and Modo. “It drives me crazy when I see an amazing model but the lighting is lacking. I wanted to create a scene that artists could import their models into and just hit render to get some great results right away. There are a bunch of different moods with these setups and it’s super easy to swap them out for one another and try different ideas to showcase your model in unique ways.”Grab it for free at https://www.32bitstudios.com/lighting-scenes
