The 3ds Max London User Group meets on the first Wednesday of every month at Truckles, opposite the British Museum. Started in 2007, the group enjoys a great number of professional members from London's advertising, architectural and animation industries. We meet to discuss ideas, methods and projects in a friendly, relaxed setting.

Vray @ 3ds London Wednesday 2nd November

For 7pm
Upstairs at The Plough, 27 Museum Street, WC1A

Hi everyone,

This November Teddy Ilieva and Jimmy Krastev are flying over to show us some of the latest Vray features. It will be a great chance to catch up with some of the Chaos Group team in the usual relaxed setting of 3ds London. Some of the areas they’ll be covering:

V-Ray® 2.0 for 3ds Max - the latest trendsetting rendering technologies by Chaos Group

1.    Memory efficiency with Render time subdivisions
2.    Displacement geometry - cool tricks
3.    Rendering heavy geometry with V-Ray Proxy
4.    V-Ray RT accelerating the shading process
5.    Creating advanced layered shaders
6.    Light Cache improvements - retrace threshold
7.    V-Ray stereoscopic rig - shade map optimizations for rendering stereoscopy
8.    Distance texture - use procedurally generated textures to create a wide range of effects based on the distance between various objects in the scene
9.    Lens analysis tool - easily match the distortion of your real world and your virtual cameras
10.    Multi-sub texture – assign different textures based on object ID
11.    Light select render element – extract the contribution of each light to the scene, change their intensity in post-production and compose them back together
12.    Adding realism to your refractive materials with light dispersion
13.    V-Ray RT running on CPU vs. GPU

As always, please bring some of your own work to share with the group, and I’m looking for some short presentations for DECEMBER. If you are interested or know someone who is, please email me.

Remember, details posted at and on Twitter, follow @3dslondon. If you’ve been along recently, you’ll know it gets busy…  So get there early if you want a seat!

Kind regards, Simon
