I hope this post finds you well.
It has been a while since my last post, mainly due to the New book I have been working on tirelessly.
With that said, I would like to announce its publication with Taylor & Francis/CRC Press, entitled, V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max 2020: 3D Rendering Workflows Volume 1.
The book is currently available on Kindle, Paperback (June 2021) and Hardcover. It can be previewed on Amazon Look inside image directly below (click and scroll down the pages):
The book begins with an overview of the best techniques to approach clients via emails, calls, meetings, and via social media. There are also key insights into the best practices of handling projects, pricing, contracts, invoices, the pre-production, production, and the post-production, to name but a few.
Throughout the book, users are taken through VRayMtl functionalities such as Diffuse, Roughness, Reflect, Glossiness, Metalness, Refract, Index of Refraction (IOR), Abbe number, Fog color, Translucency, BRDF, Coat, Sheen, and Bump.

In addition, there are tips and tricks accompanied with videos highlighting how to create VR interactive apps using Verge 3d; how to create verified views; and how to use plug-ins and scripts such as Project Manager, Auto grid pivot point, GarageFarm, Zmapping, gobotree, and VIShopper.
Finally, users will have a rare insight into all functionalities of a VRay camera, VRayLight objects, Render settings, Frame buffer, Global switches, IPR options, Bucket and Progressive image samplers, Image filters, Global DMC, Color mapping, Brute force global illumination, Light cache, Color management, Distributed rendering, Render elements, VRay image file format, VFB History settings, VFB Lens Effects, LightMix, Film tonemap, Hue/Saturation, Lookup Table, and much more.
