  2. V-Ray for SketchUp eBook for Designers, Let’s Talk About 3d Art Long Story Short: I wrote an entire book about V-Ray for SketchUp. Why? Because I have a lot of knowledge that I wanted to share with the world. Legit, right? -- As an architect, I have found SketchUp as a super comfortable 3D platform, in which everything can be modeled extremely quick. Undoubtedly one of the best 3d platforms available. Yes, there are obvious drawbacks too, but creating 3d artwork is what prompted me to use SketchUp so I became what is known as a “power user” using a lot of plugins in so many different ways. I got to know it so deeply, that one day I’ve issued my first SketchUp Pro textbook. Then there was a turning point when V-Ray for SketchUp enters the picture (literally). It was tremendous. Each simple 3d model becomes a fully realistic and attractive visualization. V-Ray for SketchUp allows me as a 3d artist and architect to communicate my projects in a unique professional matter. Very often I owe this ability to be able to apply architectural competitions and get the best out of my designs, which means that as an architect, I cannot settle for the raw SketchUp model but have to add V-Ray to my final art. Ever since I gained tremendous knowledge, skill, and technique perfecting my approach to visualization in general. So I wrote a book. Yes, a whole book, 400+ A4 pages packed ebook. Initially, it was composed in Hebrew, my native language but from that point forward, it was a very short path to get the book translated to suit the English language. The book is now available on a dedicated website at vfsbook.com and now published to the world! It’s a very exciting move to share my knowledge with the entire world, and I’m sure that as an architect and as a user, I’ve been able to improve tens of thousands of users on their rendering results. It’s an amazing feeling! I was happy to help, even in a commercially driven project, so other junior 3d artists can achieve great results in a short time, getting their learning curve as efficient as possible. If you would like to see an example from the ebook, go to vfsbook.com. Moshe Shemesh. Architect.
  3. Not sure if this is exactly a question... The default setting for the camera in SketchUp is 35 degrees. When viewing normally, 60 degrees shows things without distortion, why not use that number as a default setting. I always thought that SketchUp was confusing the 'degrees' with focal length. Curious what others think. Of course it is easy to change and one of the many settings to consider when setting a view but 60 degrees is much more realistic to me.
  4. First time using Photoshop for post Modelled on SketchUp and rendered in vray. Trying to create house in woods effects. Very open to feedback
  5. How can fabric like this be made on vray for sketchup. Everytime I try it, it never looks right
  6. Heads up: Miauu released his Link Manager- max plugin for pain-free importing, combining by material and updating your skp models in 3ds Max (without need to re-apply materials and modifiers). This is HUGE. If you are an Archviz artist modeling in SU and rendering in Max- I highly recommend this rock solid script- please support author in this difficult times; the price is symbolic. http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/miauus-manage-links
  7. Hey Everyone, I've been using Sketchup for years for all my arch modeling. I use Revit at work but not when I'm focusing on a piece for visualization purposes. Recently Blender 2.8 came out and I've been reading up on it and want to start experimenting. Sketchup can be great once you have a million plugins, but I've been looking for a more powerful modeling software to take over for a while now. Does anyone use Blender (specifically the latest version) as their primary modeling package? Not talking about rendering of any kind here, just modeling. I think one of the reasons Sketchup is popular among architecture professionals is that it functions more similar to CAD based software than other modelers such as 3DSmax. Blender doesn't seem to be much closer to a CAD environment, but I'm intrigued by the new UI and functions and its promising future. Please share your thoughts and suggestions. Thank you!
  8. Hi, This is my first post here. I'm an architect and I've recently been testing Vray next for a week. I'm facing a strange noise problem on my renders. I'm using Vray Next for sketchup 2018 and the quality is set to "very high" in the settings. The noise limit is 0.003. But still I see some ugly dots on the rendering. It was working fine with the daytime render though. Can anyone please help me? I have attached the rendering and a screenshot of my Vray settings. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi mates! I have been doing rendering for almost a decade and recently I come up with the idea of preparing video tutorials on Thea4Su (Thea render plugin for Sketchup) and you know there is no carefully set, step-by-step yet informative enough for wide range of users from noob to pro courses or information out there in the market. Also I've tried to go after a photographic approach. I've tried to think loudly while working, so the audience will be familiar with the rendering mindset. It covers: Composition, Camera, Light, Material, engine setup and postproduction tools embedded in Thea render pluginand finally puts all together in several "in-action" projects. I will release it hopefully late January and one/some free lessons also would be available. Here is the render right from the lectures:

  11. I hope it is OK to post here. I would like to sell (1) VRay for Sketchup 3.6 licenses. Price is $500 US This a a workstation license that includes a render node. The render nodes are flexible in that they can be used with other VRay products: https://www.chaosgroup.com/vray/render-node I have talked with Chaos Group sales and support and they've sent me a transfer form, which must be signed from both sides. The reason is that we are doing almost all of our work in Studio Max now and using very little with SketchUp. ! If you are interested please pm or email me! Email: serstad (at) hcm2.com
  12. Hi, Does anyone know why there is a huge black spots at my render? It's on the top of the wall shelving in the attached photo. The wall finish is cement. and there's no overlapping walls also. Hope you could suggest on how to deal with this. Thank you!
  13. Hi all, I'm at the moment trying to decide if I should use Sketchup or Rhino for visualisation. Both programs are perfectly capable, however I'm just looking for some perspectives on why some people may choose one over the other. Thanks, Jayden
  14. Please find attached the below image. Please note the white specks on the top left corner of the image. I am using vray 3.4 for sketchup, And here are my settings Hope you guys can solve my case. I tried everything like switching off the specular for the ies lights, bla bla bla.
  15. when I import SKP in 3DS max, material are being converted in Arch & Design. I want all material in vary material. How can i get it?? ( I have all ready assign my renderer in Vray.)
  16. Studio/Institution: Personal Genre: Other Software: Sketchup, 3DS Max, Photoshop Description: A render I did for uni, looking for feedback on how I can improve for future reference
  17. Hi everyone. I need a very urgent help. This is my first post on this forum. If you can help me I will be very glad. Thanks in advance. I had done several short animations with Vray before, but despite following the same steps, something is going wrong, I do not understand why. The steps I follow are from Vray's own site: the https://docs.chaosgroup.com/display/vra ... c+animatio My problem is that I can not save the Light Cache and Irradiance Map. Even though I click the save button, I couldn't find the .vrmap and .vrlmap files in where I saved them. I've tried the same steps many times. I could succeed to save them in one of my trying, but that time Vray just rendered the first scene again and again.(It normally should render and save each scene one by one) So, please help I do not like to say "urgent" but unfortunately, it is urgent
  18. Hi Guys, Exploring SketchUp-->3dsmax workflows for the first time. I've exported a large project from sketchup using the "by material" grouping and saving to .3ds format. It's taking a *REALLY* long time to load in 3dsmax. Is this normal behaviour for a moderately complex project from Sketchup? Thanks! Adam Foundry
  19. Hi, I'm currently working on building a folio & developing my work flow. I currently go from Revit to 3DS Max, but I'll soon be switching to either Rhino and/or Sketchup. How do other people work? Do most people model in Sketchup/Rhino then export to 3DS? Or is just modelling based on plans in 3DS the way to go? I'd love to hear all the different workflows people use! Thanks for your feedback
  20. Hi, I'm currently working on my portfolio and developing a workflow. At the moment I work in Revit>3DS Max, however I'll soon be moving over to Sketchup/Rhino. Is the best way to go for modelling off plans to do it in Sketchup/Rhino, or just model the whole thing in 3DS? I'd love to hear feedback & the various other workflows people use!
  21. Hi guys I am new here so I am sorry if i am posting in the wrong section. So I have this query relateed to the prepass phase of vray. Is there any difference in the final image if I am having 2 prepasses or 4 prepasses? I just need someone to explain to me this? do the number of prepasses affect the quality of final image or not?
  22. Hello, I'm looking to upgrade my CPU for faster rendering times in Vray for SketchUp, i have a rough budget of £500 for CPU only, can someone kindly recommend me a CPU please. This is a MATX build and i understand that i'll have to upgrade the motherboard too... Current build: MATX Processor: Intel - Core i7-6700 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor Graphics card: Asus - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Dual Video Card Motherboard: Asus - H110M-A/M.2 Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Ram: HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory Power supply: Corsair - RMx 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
  23. Hello there! I'm doing a project in sketchup and i wanted to make a video showing it, but there's no free plugin in sketchup that is compatible with v-ray. I have 3ds max in my computer, but i rarely use it, but i know that in 3dsmax there's no need to download plugins for this. So my question is: Can i import my project to 3ds max with all the textures i applied? Thanks
  24. In my office we usually work with 3DSmax + vray and now want to migrate to Sketchup+vray. is there a way to export the settings? I know how to export the RPS but not how to import it to SU. Thanks!
  25. Hi everyone, I am beginning with 3Ds Max 2014 and would like to know if it is possible to link to Sketchup models the same way one can LINK to DWG files for updating? it is so non productive to import the model everytime. I know that newer versions of MAX have direct import for .skp but at this office i can only have a 2014 version thanks so much
