Today I show you how to setup caustics in V-Ray and getting this result:
In these years I worked a lot with live trainings (see here) and from the 2012 I will work online with you: 1 easy lesson per week we’ll learn a lot of things togheter.
This is our goal:
Give you easy, fast and comfortable knowledges about 3ds max + V-Ray + photoshop, every week.
Last year I wrote a post about Caustics here. It’s time to update those contents with an effective video and a couple of files to let you test and play with parameters. This is CG Blog Premium and for this time it’s free. Another gift for you… happy new year ^^
Watch, try, learn.
- Important: disable Affect Shadows, to get caustics (this is not in the video!)
- Enable caustics
- Set Photon emit radius (V-Ray Sun)
- Increase Caustics Subvids (Vray Properties > V-Ray Sun)
- Now, download this file and repeat the exercise.
For any doubts check the “FINAL” version file.
