Enscape and V-Ray: The Ultimate Workflow for Rendering
September 05, 20231 min read
Did you know that you can import Enscape materials, 3D assets, and cloud configurations straight into V-Ray so that you can continue working on your renders and enhance their visual quality? Enscape pro Melos Azemi demonstrates in this video how easy it is to jump from the quick and easy Enscape workflow to the high-end, photorealistic V-Ray results!
Learn how to create a photorealistic render with just three clicks:
The first step in creating your perfect real-time render is to utilize the material editor in Enscape. This feature allows you to customize the graphics and variations of your 3D model from the SketchUp Warehouse. You can also use this tool to adjust lighting, shadows, reflections, and more, depending on your specific project needs.
To add more realism to your exterior renderings or compositions, try introducing High Dynamic Range Images (HDRI). These images capture detailed lighting conditions of specific environments or scenes and can be used as a base layer for texture maps or other detailing elements in your renderings. It is important to rotate HDRI images so that the sun direction is detected correctly when overlaying them onto the composition/rendering environment image. This will add natural lighting effects throughout the entire space being rendered, accurately reflecting the source photo taken from a real-life environment or scene captured originally with HDRI camera equipment.
Finally, enhance your compositions with live elements from the Enscape asset library, such as vegetation or realistic environments like oceans or deserts, depending on your project needs.
