It takes a good amount of Training and Knowledge of the tools bundled with it to fully utilize its capabilities. One of the features that I love as a long time 3DS Max user is its built-in lighting set up capability which is way more powerful and easier to use than its counterparts. With the latest 3DS Max versions, which allow you to preview lighting adjustments in real-time, making simple and complicated Lighting set-ups have never been easier. There is also a handful of 3DS Max Lighting Scripts and Plug-ins available to make lighting more of a drag and drop thing thereby speeding the process of completing a project. In this post, I have gathered the most useful 3D Studio Max Lighting Tutorials for you to apply in your own projects and may help you save time and effort.

Tutorial: exterior lighting with vray and 3ds max Hello. I was looking for a long time good solution for illuminating exteriors in vray. Sometimes it was better and sometimes worse. Sometimes a component of the scene looked good, but otherwise just came out wrong. But in the end I found a way - this is not the world championship, but I have enough for now. The scene with 3ds max vray 1.

HDRI or none, so you have to replace them in the material editorze : 1. The effect of my lighting looks like this rather poor settings so you can increase subdivs in materials, noise threshold and GI 2.

General settings for the scene. We choose as the image sampler Adaptive DMC - better preserves the quality of textures. Max subdivs to 25, so the picture should remain the focus but also be clear.

In addition, will render quite quickly. Antyalising is a universal Mitchell. Color Intensity mapping is exponential, and the Dark multiplier set to 2. Affect background - the background is suited to the color and brightness of the models. Reduce Saturation of GI and we rise Contrast. GI settings are pretty weak, but at exteriors basically do not need better - the differences are not noticeable. So Irradiance map to "low. A Light subdivs cache and four passes.

The final image, which showed the first was rendered with Noise threshold 0. Map of the environment. First, we should take a map of environment. It is crucial, because it virtually gives the scene in nature - both illuminates and is visible in the reflections of materials. Thanks to this RGB values of our maps will add. Where a map was dark, the other will add to its value. Rising Multiplier makes map more visible.

Source B is VRaySky. We have to go to the manual of the map, because in our scene we have no VRaySun. Reduce sun intensity multiplier of 0. Thanks to this map does not blows all VRayCompTex. That map put to the slots as shown below: Basically do not have to give is to VRay:: Environment, as already it is in the background, but thanks to this we can always quickly change the values and settings for each place.

To add a little shadow that will propagate nicely on the sides and resemble a bit AO, we give a big VRayLighta located as shown below.

Multiplier is not too large, so it was not the dominant light. Lights in the inside of the house are set similarly, except that the color is yellow and multiplier at the You can click Store with irradaiance maps the result of a lack of noise , but then you would need to adjust the Irr engine better. An important element of lighting is a camera. Here are the settings: As a white balance select Daylight: the scene will become with suitable color. Since the render came out quite dark, you can reduce the f-number to brighten the scene.

Postproduction An important element is the postproduction in exterior lighting. This render has been lightened in photoshop by the curves. I hope that this tutorial is useful to someone. If you have any questions, concerns, please contact: skype: anosjun.


12 Useful 3DS Max Lighting Tutorials You Should Learn

The vegetation has been kept to a minimum for fast test renders. Getting the perfect light balance will ensure that our materials and the final scene look amazing from the start. The rendering settings are pretty basic for testing the lighting of our scene. The most important point while choosing HDRI maps is the exposure range. The higher the range, which is measured in f-stops, the better the lighting it provides.


3ds Max and V-Ray: Exterior Lighting and Rendering

Then choose a nice camera position. If you want to make your image brighter then you have two possibilities like you would have with your DSLR-camera as well : You can lower the f-number You can change the shutter speed for the camera Four Most Important Parameters of a Physical Vray Camera Let me explain the four most important parameters of a physical Vray Camera: Shutter speed: Stutter speed can control the brightness of your scene. A lower shutter speed lets more light reach the photo chip of a DSLR. Or the other way around a faster shutter speed give less light pass — the image becomes darker.


3ds Max Lighting and Rendering - Simulating Exterior Lighting

The rasterization process include, the rendering parameters, the rendering engine, lights, 3d models, textures, shaders, and other effects. Some of the articles, Videos and Tutorials depicted here will take you through the process of rendering. To achieve this, users often need to possess the skills and the"eye" to appreciate good photography, cameras, composition, lighting, shaders, materials, 3d modelling, rendering and have some post-production skills. Some of the articles, Videos and Tutorials depicted here will help you achieve truly photorealistic renderings. The post-production often occurs in applications such as Photoshop, After Effects, Nuke, etc.
