Trainer: Cory Holm (CG Specialist, Chaos Group)

Duration: 1 hour

Topics of  the webinar:

  • A whole new level of interactivity: The IPR now updates instantaneously, and with the Debug Shading feature, you can isolate geometry and large shading networks to boost your look development. We’ve seamlessly integrated V-Ray IPR in the viewport for Maya Playblast animation previews.
  • Pump up the GPU volume: V-Ray GPU Next comes with a new multi-kernel architecture that renders up to twice as fast. It’s packed with new production features such as volume rendering for smoke, fire, and fog, as well as support for bucket sampling and cryptomatte render elements.
  • Pump down the noise: With NVIDIA’s AI denoiser, look development is now perfectly noise-free with IPR in the VFB or the viewport.
  • Faster than the speed of light: Smart new tools improve your workflow and speed up environment lighting by up to 7x. The adaptive dome light features faster and more accurate IBL without light portals in interiors. Scene intelligence speeds up your rendering and adds point-and-shoot automatic camera exposure and white balance.
  • Hair, toons, and metal: Find out how to create photorealistic hair with the new physiologically accurate hair material, and create cartoon and cel-shading effects with the toon shader. With the Metalness parameter you can apply your PBR workflow from other applications such as Substance Designer to the V-Ray Material.
