From V-Ray for Revit and 3ds Max to VR: Multiplatform Workflows in Architecture

The masterclass is dedicated to the effective deployment of V-Ray's powerful rendering capabilities straight within the native design platform, to allow for an easy, et powerful and scalable process of visualization without interrupting the design workflow. This integrated aproach brings new flexibility and powers at the hand of architects and designers, allowing for visualization with quality and complexity, adapted to each stage of the design process - from 3D concept drawings and model-like renders, through cross-sections, light studies, material studies and complete 360-degree representations in VR. The masterclass will finish with a step further - utilising V-Ray's vrscene format to transfer the whole project into 3ds Max and create stunning final visuals with V-Ray 3.6 for 3ds Max.

V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp: Bringing the best to your SketchUp workflow

V-Ray 3 for SketchUp was created to be the fastest and smartest rendering solution in SketchUp. And now we just took it further down this path. Kalina Panteleeva will demonstrate live how V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp opens a completely new level of not only rendering, but complete user experience and design capabilities within SketchUp. With the help of a real-life project you will see for yourself the newly obtained power at every step of creating realistic designs and visualizations, with a quality everyone's used to expect from complex platforms like 3ds Max. You will learn to save time and effort with the new UI and its fast presets and smart controls; will get into the details of the completely new material editor and the vast material library, which comes free in the package. You will also find out about the new lighting possibilities, the added support to the photorealistic VRscans, the added post-production options straight into the VFB and the vast possibilities for cross-platform workflows.

V-Ray 3.6 for 3ds Max: The light way to heavyweight visualization

The latest V-Ray 3.6 for 3ds Max came out in early summer, adding new advanced capabilities to the toolset of architecture's most powerful renderer. The masterclass, though, will go beyond the feature set - it is set to help you upgrade your workflow so that you obtain the maximum out of your renderer's powers. The basis of the masterclass - a project by the Danish company Christensen & Co, was developed through a complete BIM pipeline and required as realistic and reality based images as possible, in order to get aproval by the most demanding customers - society and local authorities. So it is ideal to train effective l;ighting aproaches to creating evoking atmosphere, applying new materials, atmospheric effects and optimizing everything with the use of V-Ray's new added algorythms. Furthermore, we will take a step into Hybrid rendering and demonstrate a bunch other means of adding efficiency and quality to the overall visualization workflow.

GPUnleashed: Super-fast rendering workflows with V-Ray RT GPU

GPU rendering came to V-Ray in the form of V-Ray RT GPU long before using the GPU for realistic renders became popular and widespread. And yet V-Ray RT GPU has always been overshadowed by its popular and well-known CPU siebling. Still neighter V-Ray, nor the whole rendering world sit still and their hectic development brought an ever increasing demand for productivity, supported features and overall quality. And while with its latest updates V-Ray's GPU engine meets, if not surpasses the majority of users' demands, a few artists are aware of its true power and the approaches to deploy its full power within their workflow. Hence - the birth of this masterclass. Here Kalina Panteleeva will be working within an animated project, created by one of the most advanced and authoritative collectives in the GPU rendering world - Dabarti Studio. And the masterclass will train you to make use of all the vast variety of features, supported on the GPU, employing to the full extent both V-Ray's and your GPU's rendering powers, optimizing render time and performance to the maximum. All this - on V-Ray RT GPU!
