DESCRIPTION

VRay: THE COMPLETE GUIDE is the first guide in the world completely dedicated to VRay, with the aim of providing advanced support to CG artists. Searching for information about particular parameters can be very time-consuming – who hasn’t spent whole days trying to understand technical mistakes in their projects? Having some presets isn’t enough: you need to fully understand the tools we use every day to face increasingly difficult tasks.

VRay: THE COMPLETE GUIDE was born out of two years of hard work, during which I strived to create a high-quality handbook dedicated to VRay users. Not a simple list of basic commands, but a specialized, essential tool, composed of both the technical and the theoretical, for those who want to reach the next level.

This book contains 1,000 pages2,300 images, and 3,200 renders specifically created for it. In addition, a CD-ROM containing 32 animations in .mov format is attached, with examples that would be impossible to understand with just through images. This unique handbook is printed in color, A4 format (most books tend to be smaller), and is hardcover and casebound (sewn), guaranteeing a quality product made to last.

 

SECOND EDITION

VRay: THE COMPLETE GUIDE – Second edition is available only in PDF format, and is the update to VRay 1.5 SP3a, with 30 brand new pages. An interactive index will help you quickly reach any part of the book. As a protection system, a non-invasive watermark is applied to each page, specifying customer information (name and address), and the copy-paste function is disabled. We’ve also created an OFFICIAL FORUM where your questions about the guide can be discussed with the author. The book is on sale for 25 euros.
