I thought I'd take a bit of time, and record some videos to introduce folks to Vray for Maya. This is mostly geared toward people already familiar with rendering with raytracers (like Mental Ray). It won't go over very basic concepts, but it will introduce vray in such a way, as to get you producing nice images with it quickly. It was initially thought of as internal training videos for my company. We get a lot of freelancers in that have experience with MR, but not with Vray. So I often spend time with them going over the same stuff over and over. So this will help everyone!
So far, only the first few are up on my youtube channel. The introduction in 2 parts, and an overview of "Nederhorst Settings" which are solid, easy-to-use and production-proven settings. I plan to add more soon. Next ones should be, the Vray Framebuffer, Materials, and Lights.
