5 FREE Exterior Setups

I’ve made those FREE Exterior setups especially for those that struggle to set their VRaySun VRaySky and VRayPhysCam white balance.

All the cameras were adjusted to match day time temperature and the proper environment exposure.

This setup were made with “Linear” workflow and works excellent with saving output as HDRI and NOT as JPG or PNG.

Alright so here it is, 5 FREE Exterior setups made with 3Ds Max 2010 and VRay 1.5 SP6

HDRi Lighting 3DsMax VRay

Check out this FREE HDRI sky provided by Peter Guthrie .

He does amazing renders simply because he uses the most advanced method for lighting up interior & exterior scenes by using 3Ds max and VRay.

This method called IBL – “Image Based Lighting“, and it’s based on High Dynamic Range images (HDRI’s) – Images strong enough to lighten the entire scene.

Additional lights can be used to emphasize better different objects in the scene, but the general idea, is that you can use only one image to do your PhotoRealistic lighting and get outstanding results.

Here’s how you can do it in the most efficient way:

VRay Passes in After Effects

Hey, here’s how you can combine VRay passes by using after effects!
Pretty much the same principles as in Photoshop :)

It’s not a linear way, so I’m not trying to get “physically correct beauty pass”…
This render was made with color mapping = exponential, not linear.

Enjoy the video

This was a sample from our Fly-through Animation training that we just did.
