    Blowing bubbles using V-Ray Metaballs

    Simulating liquid behaviour in 3D applications can be a complex task and usually requires external plugins. These plugins are typically full of advanced controls for simulation that at first glance can be daunting. But for more simple simulations V-Ray Metaballs is a great alternative as you can get...

    V-Ray HDRI studio with a white reflective floor

    Image based lighting using HDRI maps is a popular choice for creating studio type environments in V-Ray. However if attempting the popular white studio with a reflective floor and soft shadows, the HDRI ends up being reflected in the floor as well as the scene objects. This tutorial will explain how...

    Generating complex geometry using V-Ray displacement

    The V-Ray displacement modifier is a tool that generates additional geometry that would otherwise need to be modelled. Patterns such as the ones commonly seen on a car tyre use complex geometric shapes, these can be time consuming to model. This same 3D pattern can be generated from a texture map with...

    Add bloom and glare to your render using the V-Ray Lens Effects

    This tutorial shows you how to setup the V-Ray Lens Effects plugin. The effect appears in areas that are extremely bright which can sometimes lead to harsh black edges caused by over exposed pixels. The change from one extremely bright pixel to a dull pixel is what makes this anomaly happen. In real...

    Controlling lights in post using 3ds Max State Sets and Adobe After Effects

    Ken Pitts demonstrates how to use 3ds Max State Sets and Autodesk’s After Effects Plugin to make a lighting system that is fully controllable in post-production and to eliminate the need for tracking on simple objects such as a TV screen. This enables you to change the brightness and colour of...
