Here it is – preview and features of a new upcoming version of VRay 3.0
Small script allows to set up an orthographic VRay camera in the scene.
You can download it from here: VRay Orthographic Rendering Camera Rig
You just need to set it up once. The script doesn’t need to be loaded/running to render the view later or even on the different machine.
To make a top view just rotate the camera. It is possible to adjust position of the camera (with the rig) and its parameters (focal length and film width) without the script interface.
I needed it to render sections/elevations of a hotel room in my work. It worked fine. Camera cuts the model in the place where is here center (origin).
The viewport doesn’t show orthographic view. The scope of the render needs to be tested.
Today I would like to recommend you to take a look at another tutorial posted on RonenBekerman.com
Making of Scandinavian Summer House is a great tutorial which will plainly show you the basic how to set up a scene for exterior rendering using Vray and also how you can use the FloorGeneretor script in practice and MultiScatter plugin from R&D Group.
I was recently really busy working on some visuals for Hilton Hotels and because I was using 3DS Max and VRay hence I have a new idea for the post to share with you.
To install that script vcm.mcr just drop and drop it to the 3DS Max window or Run it from the MAXScript menu. Apparently nothing will happen but a new position named VRay Camera Manager will be added to a list of available commands in the Customize User Interface window on the Toolbar tab. You can drag and drop this command to any of your open toolbars.
Tested in in Max 2012, 2013, 2014 but should work in earlier versions
VRay 2.0 or higher
The most useful thing when you have a lot of lights in your scene which you need to amend is a list of all lights with their values easy to adjust. Read Harjs Blog to get to know the solution for that.
Another useful thing from Harjs Blog – How to transfer big files directly between two computers.
Thank you Harj.
