Description

In this collection of lessons, we will be exploring several of the V-Ray rendering nodes that can be found in Maya's Hypershade. These Hypershade nodes can be used to create a variety of effects and many of these nodes provide us a number of additional controls over our V-Ray renders. For example, we will be taking an in-depth look at a number of nodes that can be used individually or used together to create a variety of surface material types that obey real-world laws of optics. We will also learn a variety of methods for adding volumetric effects to our renders, creating subsurface scattering materials, using geometry as a direct illumination source, along with many other lessons dedicated to the various V-Ray nodes found in Maya's Hypershade. Software required: V-Ray for Maya 1.5SP1 and higher, Maya 2011 and higher.
