Season Greetings VRay & 3ds Max Tutorial


       Play the Video in Full HD


Season Greetings Everyone ;0)

I have recently created the above Tutorial about the entire process of creating this 3d Christmas scene.

This Full HD Video tutorial focuses mainly on the process of editing the existing materials, the rendering settings and full post-production using 3Ds Max, VRay and Photoshop.
Most of the lighting and rendering of this 3d scene were based on my previous day and night courses seen in the Video. 

Please check them both to see how they were put together.
Also, the car studio lighting tutorial goes through most VRay settings and materials in detail. Alternatively, you can download this full 3d Christmas scene and the Photoshop file to check how everything was put together.

This Full 3Ds Max Scene with Textures and the PSD Photoshop file is Free for my Patreon Supporters, Or $7.00 to Download if you're NOT

Important Terminologies & Descriptions:

3d Rendering: Is the process of converting the three dimensional (3D) data seen in a 3d scene into 2D image/s (rasterized).
The rasterization process include, the rendering parameters, the rendering engine, lights, 3d models, textures, shaders, and other effects.
3D renders can be a sequence of animated objects/effects/cameras, or a single frame with a still camera and object/s.
The Video depicted here will take you through the process of rendering.

Photorealistic Rendering: Is the Process or Art of making a typical Computer Generated Image/render (CGI) look indistinguishable from a real photo.
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.

Architectural Rendering, or architectural illustration/Visualizations, is the art/process of creating two-dimensional images or animations depicting the attributes of an architectural design, while using state of the art applications such as, Autocad, 3ds max, VRay, Cinema 4d, Blender, Maya, Corona, Photoshop, etc

Post-Production: Is the process of creating effects or/and results after (post) the main process.
This terminology can be used to describe the results (post-production) of main processes such as 3d renderings  and/or filming a scene.
The post-production often occurs in applications such as Photoshop, After Effects, Nuke, etc.
The Video depicted here will take you through the process.

V-Ray: Is a rendering engine that uses global illumination algorithms, including path tracing, photon mapping, irradiance maps and directly computed global illumination.
Furthermore, it is used as a commercial plug-in for third-party 3D computer graphics software applications such as 3ds max, Maya, Houdini, Blender, Nuke, etc,  for visualizations and computer graphics in industries such as media, entertainment, film and video game production, industrial design, product design and architecture.


Adobe Photoshop:

Vray Mesh Export Missing from 3ds Max Quad Menu


        Play the Video in Full HD and with Subtitles (CC)

There are times when the VRay menus are Not  available on the right click quad.
This often happens after installing 3ds max and VRay, or during the installation of other programs in 3ds max.

This Video Tutorial takes users through the quick process of enabling back the VRay menus when Unavailable from the right click quad.

I really hope you find this Tutorial useful.

Verified View/s: Is an accurate Photomontage of a proposed design/building, using the Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (GLVIA3).

Photomontage in 3d Visualization: Is the process of incorporating a 3d object/design/building into a 2d image/photo, while matching the camera angle/settings, position and the overall lighting depicted in the 2d photo.  
This laborious process often requires the usage of a 2d and a 3d application.   

To create an accurate Photomontage/Verified View, the 3d Visualizer/specialist needs a: 3d context model to plot/plan the shots; a photo of the location in question; the survey data; camera information; a 2d and a 3d application to create the Final Verified View/s .
Some of the articles, Videos and Tutorials depicted here will take you through the process.


Planning Applications: These can be used to find out whether a proposed development is likely to be approved by the planning authority, before substantial costs are incurred developing a detailed design.


Planning Permissions: Is the legal process of determining whether proposed developments should be permitted. Responsibility for planning lies with local planning authorities (usually the planning department of the district or borough council). The legislation, policy and guidance that underpins planning in England can be found on the government's National Planning Practice Guidance

A 3d Visualiser works within the realm of 3d visualization, a sector of the Computer Graphics Industry (or CGI) that is primarily concerned with the visual presentation of design concepts and ideas. And a company within the 3d visualisation sector offers to its customers (among many things) 3d Visualization Services.

Interior design is the art and science of enhancing the interior of a building or/and a space to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable environment for those using the space.

An interior designer is someone who plans, researches, coordinates, and manages such projects. Interior design is a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, space planning, site inspections, programming, research, communicating with the stakeholders of a project, construction management, and execution of the design.
