    Help with lighting in Vray

    Hello,

    I have only been playing around with Vray for the past 2-3 weeks and I am having serious trouble figuring out the lighting.

    Here are 2 example pics ( also my case design entry ) this is using 2 rectangular light or 4sq meters each set to 90 power that are approx 2 meters from the subject, and 2 8sq meter set at 45 power approx 4 meters from the subject. How do I get better illumination?>

    Here is my first render of my iphone. Took around an hour to model it. I need as much help as I can get on making the render look better, just worked out how to adjust the materials a bit.

    Using Photoshop360

    That's a pretty good render. I would put a screen image on there, cause it looks a bit blank. Maybe you could move the frame up a bit for a higher angle to show some more detail.

    Haha.

    I like it when people post a perfect render that could be mistaken for an actual photo and calling it "playing around" :hehe:

    I just saw your open plan room, great design and the render is stunning as well.:thumb:

    @ixmatal, Vray has very good HDRI and GI options, try setting a sphere with a HDRI map to provide a general all round illumination map and use spot lights to light specific areas of the design better. Personally I think you've lit your case very well.

    tangster - thank you, I made a spotlight and it was night and day difference, I couldn't figure out why, so I deleted all of my lighting and re-created it and now there is no problem (!?)

    I really don't like trying to work sketchup/vray, too many bugs, for instance if you look close at the first pic you will notice that all the components on the motherboard are grayed out.

    Anyway working on another couple of renders, I will post them later


    Thank you!

    Vray does that sometimes, I think it because it's searching for the textures in the wrong folder. You have to manually direct it to the correct paths.
