Vray for SketchUp Tutorial Part 2: MATERIALS AND TEXTURES

After discussing the basics of Vray for SketchUp Illumination, I’m moving forward with this tutorial by attempting to explain and demonstrate the different Vray materials and textures settings.

I must admit, this part is the hardest to create and perfect in Vray renders. I do a lot of trials and errors and I always find myself running to other tutorials as well. Most of these techniques I got from one of the most comprehensive blogs when it comes to Vray for SketchUp rendering, SketchUp Vray Resources by Nomeradona. Put in mind though that materials work best with proper illumination – a good throw of light is sometimes the secret of great renderings.

If you can notice, I opted to do an interior with rich textures. I would have gone with plain walls and floors but to exhaust almost all of the layers and options Vray has, I went with bricks, wood, carpet, etc. With that said, I have five things to discuss in this part:

1. Refraction Layer

REFLECTION-LAYER2. Reflection Layer

3. Bump Map

4. Displacement Map

5. Vray Two-Sided Materials

(Note that I previously talked about the Emissive Layer in PART 1. Read more about it again here.)

Now here goes PART 2:

Here are more examples of surfaces with bump. Have you noticed that I’ve been adding Reflection Layers to almost all materials?

I guess that’s about it. We’ve got all areas covered and I hope you found every bit of it useful.

Now, some people would already stop at this phase. But knowing me, being the Photoshop Queen (oh my, shameless branding!), I don’t stop until I photoshop and that’s exactly what I’ll do here. For Vray renders though, I only do a few adjustments – some levels, curves and overlays. You can read all about that in Part 3: POST PROCESSING, up next!

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.
