VRscans Academic University Plug-in, 1-Year License (Price Tier 30-49 seats)

VRscans Academic: Available for students and teachers. No watermark.

VRscans Academic University Plug-in -- 1-Year License (Price Tier 30-49 seats)VRscans Plug-in 1-Year Rental is combination of a hardware-based scanning system and a software-based rendering plugin that work together to easily create material properties for creating realistic renderings without the usual workflow of texture maps and tweaking shader settings. This enables a high level of accuracy for visualizing real-world materials in renders.
The VRscans Plug-in is specially designed to import and render scanned materials. Since .vrscan files are a proprietary format, the VRscans Plug-in acts as a bridge into the latest versions of V-Ray for 3ds Max and V-Ray for Maya. Chaos Group expects to support other applications soon.
Access to the growing library of VRscans materials is now available, and comes with the purchase of VRscans Plug-in.

How does the VRscan process work?

The process begins with a scan of an existing real-world object surface. VRscans Plug-in uses BTF (bidirectional texture functions) instead of BRDF approximations (such as Phong, Blinn, Ward, etc) to capture a material's true surface appearance, texture data, and its unique response to light. All this information is then stored in a unique VRscans Plug-in material format. This scanned material is then read in to the CG scene using the VRscans Plug-in and is ready for rendering through V-Ray without much (if any) additional tweaking required to match the original scanned material's surface.
Step 1. Send materials to be scanned
Clients provide Chaos Group with one or more physical material samples.
Step 2. Materials are evaluated for scanning
Chaos Group's lab techs evaluate each material to determine if it's suitable for scanning. If not, the material will be returned at no charge.
Step 3. Materials are scanned
Each material is carefully scanned by one of Chaos Group's expert lab techs. Once the scan is complete, the resulting images are transformed into a seamless, tileable file. And after passing inspection and strict quality control, the material scans are ready for delivery.
Step 4. Scanned files are delivered
Files are delivered by private FTP link or physical drive. Additional courier fees may apply.
Step 5. Material samples are returned
Chaos Group understands that materials may be proprietary or copyrighted, and all samples are promptly returned to the client.

Key Features

Here are some of VRscans Plug-in's key features:
Adjust UV tiling
Adjust the scale of the texture tiling by interactively clicking on the object's mesh.
Control the color
Tint the color of the original scanned surface to suit your scene's needs by adjusting the Filter color on the scanned material node.
Easily read information on the scanned object
The scanned material hosts information fields that display information from the original scanned object such as the size of the physical sample used to scan the material.
Set the Subdivision level
Control quality and speed of reflections by adjusting subdivisions of reflection rays as well as the Trace Depth to set the number of reflection bounces needed.
Index of Refraction
Scanned materials with a clear coat layer, like car paint, also have an accurate IOR value that is obtained from the scanning process for the surface.
Adjustable surface bump
The VRscans Plug-in process stores a built-in bump map for the clear coat layer of the scanned material that can be controlled for the needs of the scene.

Universities/Educational Institutions licenses

"Universities/Educational institutions" are defined as those dedicated to education, including a public or private, school or a two-year or four-year college or university or career school that is accredited by a state or other appropriate governmental agency or organization. An educational institution is not a government or nonprofit agency, a commercial customer, a corporate training environment, or other training program or center that serves commercial or professional customers. Universities/Educational institutions must purchase software with documentation issued by the institution.

Sending the Proof

Information regarding where to send your Proof of Educational Status will be automatically e-mailed to you upon receipt of your order. You can also check our Educational Orders FAQ.

Technical Support

Novedge does not provide technical support for educational versions of the software. If you need technical support please refer to the manufacturer website for additional information.
