What you will learn
In this series of lessons we will learn how to gain a very high level of control over our final renders by taking advantage of Render Elements in V-Ray for Maya. Using Render Elements, we can quickly render our scenes out in multiple passes, which can be re-assembled in an external compositing application. The advantage to rendering in multiple passes is that we gain a much greater level of control over the final image result. This course will teach you how to fully utilize many of the Render Elements available in V-Ray, such as the separation lights, shadows, reflections and highlights into individual passes, as well as how to properly reassemble your passes in an external compositing application. We will also learn how to render specific materials and textures out to their own Render Elements as well as many other topics and workflows designed to help you become a stronger, more efficient rendering artist with V-Ray.
