This exercise will focus on using Vray's Artificial Lights and various options within the Vray Render Option Dialogue Box to control settings for a interior render.
Assessment objectives

Assessment objectives include:

  • Understanding the appropriate use of different lights in V-ray.
  • Understanding the various properties to control the output of a render using V-ray.
  • Using these properties to create various different effects within V-ray.
Exercise Type Problem Set
Evaluation Criteria
High Pass
Renderings use appropriate interior lights. Renderings have appropriate variations relative to the established settings.
Renderings use the appropriate interior lights. Renderings do not have appropriate variations relative to the established settings.
Low Pass
Renders do not demonstrate use of interior lights.
Uses Tool(s) Tool:VRay
Uses Workflow(s)

Using the provided model (or your own model if you would like to practice on your own work), create two different renderings:

Rendering 1 - Using View A in the Interior Lighting Model, Place spotlights appropriately within model. Editing settings appropriately to reduce blotchiness of render.

Rendering 2 - Using the Gallery Model, create a night render of scene with glass used to emit light to exterior of building. Make sure that the daylight settings are consistent with a night render.

Camera Settings for all renderings should be appropriate so that the rendered elements of the model are not burned out(too bright) or lack contrast(too dark).

Each rendering should be rendered at the 800x600 pixel size and placed on the template document created earlier in the semester.

Document will be turned in as a PDF by the following Monday at 2pm.
