Vray Training Videos

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.

Intro Part 1

Intro Part 2

nice tutorial but are you sure about the "linear workflow" setting? Form a Gnomon tutorial I know the settings with the gamma of 2.2 and "adaptation only". In the vray render frame buffer I turn on "sRGB". On the texture nodes I do noting else.

Hey Andrew, can you shed some light on the following 'disclaimer' from the Vray docs:

"Linear workflow - when this option is checked V-Ray will automatically apply the inverse of the Gamma correction that you have set in the Gamma field to all VRayMtl materials in your scene. Note that this option is intended to be used only for quickly converting old scenes which are not set up with proper linear workflow in mind. This option is not a replacement for proper linear workflow."
