V-Ray for SketchUp. A rendering plug-in for designers. ASGVIS. User Manual. Damien Alomar. Jorge Barrero. By Chia Fu Chiang. Fernando Rentas. Application SDK · Chaos Cloud · V-Ray for Revit · V-Ray Next for Rhino · V-Ray Next for SketchUp · V-Ray Swarm · V-Ray Standalone Material Editor · OSL. Below are navigation buttons to some of the most common documentation sections for V-Ray for SketchUp. For the full list of sections, please use the page tree.
Since this is a tutorial, allow me to put 4 spotlights in my four recess lamps. This tab works in conjunction with the Vray lights toolbar, which allows you to add different kinds of light, like rectangle lights, sphere lights, spot lights, IES lights, and more. When using this setting. Essential guide for architects, builders and designers who already know the basics of SketchUp. Adaptation Only:
You can hide this part on the ceiling. How to use the VFB Channel: You can enable the channels by clicking once to highlight them. This option allows you to render a region of the scene in the V-Ray Frame Buffer. How to use the V-Ray Frame Buffer: In the image to the right.
This option allows you to render separate elements of the image. This option allows you to match the viewport aspect ratio dimension of the viewport to the SketchUp aspect ratio. How to use Get View Aspect: After setting up your desired SketchUp camera ratio. V-Ray will automatically match the SketchUp camera ratio. Layer Arrangement: Now you can arrange the material layer to any position. Materials Materials Arrangement: This new build allows you to move and arrange the materials in any order by dragging and dropping the material in your desired position on the V-Ray Material Editor.
How to use Material Arrangement: Select the material and move it to the new position. You can place the reflection layer on top of the emissive layer to create a reflective light bulb material.
Green Glass Gold Layer Preview: It is now possible to make a preview of every single layer in your material to see how this layer affects the final result. Below is an example of the Layer Preview. We improved our material editor to include a preview of the material that looks as close as possible to the final render.
The material has four layers: Use Color Texture for Transparency: This option allows you to activate the alpha transparency directly on the material. In the Diffuse Layer. Remember that the images should be transparency. You have the ability to change the displacement parameters in every material in your scene. How to use Color Texture for Transparency: Go to the V-Ray material Editor and select the material that you want to apply transparency.
Alpha Transparency: This new build supports direct alpha transparency on the material. V-Ray only supports. This option shifts the displaced surface up and down along the normals. When View Dependent is off.
This can be either positive or negative. A value of 1. Keep Continuity: Using continuity will produce a connected surface. When this is on. It is not a good idea to keep this value very high as it will significantly increase the render time.
This will clip the surface geometry in places where the displacement map value is below the specified threshold. The value is in fact the square root of the maximum number of sub-triangles.
This controls the maximum sub-triangles generated from any triangle of the original mesh. This can be used for clip mapping a displacement map value. For best results. A small value will increase your render time considerably. Notice that all three geometries have a different quality. Each triangle of the original mesh is subdivided into a number of sub-triangles. More sub-triangles mean more detail in the displacement. Notice that all geometries have the same quality. If you are making a very large rendering.
This is an example of the global value of the displacement. The meaning of edge length depends on the view-dependent parameter below. The above example uses per material displacement. Edge Length: This determines the quality of the displacement. You can also use a texture mapping for this option.
By default the color is white. By default the color is Black. This is the color of the dirt or the occluded area. This texture mapping type can be used to simulate dirt on objects.
This is the color of the unoccluded area areas without dirt. You can use this new texture mapping in any layer to blend the mapping. Procedural Texture Mapping: V-Ray has fourteen new texture maps that allow you to create different effects on the material editor. You can also use texture mapping for these options. This option allows you to invert the dirt with respect to surface normals. This parameter controls the speed of the transition between the areas with dirt and the areas without dirt.
Ignore For GI: When this option is enabled the dirt effect will be taken into consideration for GI calculations. If off. Consider Same Object Only: When on. Z axes. Controls the number of samples that V-Ray takes to calculate the dirt effect. For ambient occlusion. These parameters can also be negative values for inversing the direction of the dirt.
The effect is that the dirt area is being narrowed closer to the contact edges. These parameters determine the amount of area where the VRayDirt effect is produced.
These parameters will bias the normals to the X Y. Lower values render faster but produce a more noisy result. Bias X. This parameter will force the rays to gather closer to the surface normal. V-Ray for SketchUp has other procedure mapping that you can combine to create different effects.
Below is a list with the other texture mappings. In addition to the Dirt material. Monday through Friday. Some links that will help you learn V-Ray for SketchUp: Software Download. Free materials.

Here is the settings for my Spotlight. For me the most critical setting is the Shadow Radius which controls the softness of the shadows, Shadow Subdivision controls the smoothness of the shadow and last but not the least is the Penumbra Angle.
In the image below I used 0. Here is the render using Spotlight. In this render I used a very low resolution. This is the reason why I have splotches and grains. This can be corrected easily by using higher Subdivisions and Samplings. Here is a simple lamp I modeled in SketchUp.
I will show you how to place V-Ray rectangular lights. Here I hid the shade of my lamp to show how I set up my rectangular lights.
V-Ray rectangular 1 and 2 run along the height of the shade. The one that casts shadows is the third V-Ray rectangular light. This one casts shadows, double sided but I made it invisible.
Lampshade material: Lastly, I will add a few more components.
I hope you will wait for the second part of this tutorial and my guide to lighting with V-Ray for SketchUp. Learn SketchUp to Layout for Architecture! This book will make you wave goodbye to AutoCAD. Within the asset editor, there are 2 different kinds of renderings — render with Vray and render with Vray interactive.
This will open up a window where you can see your rendering. This window contains a huge number of settings which we can adjust in the future, as well as options for rendering different regions within your model.
I started using SketchUp as part of my work as a general contractor in I quickly realized the power of the software and started using it for personal projects. I started The SketchUp Essentials as a place to share easy to follow SketchUp tutorials and tips to help everyone harness the power of 3D Modeling in their lives. When not working with SketchUp, I enjoy playing soccer and spending time with my wife and our two dogs. Hi there!
