3ds max vray lighting tutorials. We have provided here some of the most useful tutorials for 3ds max and vray lighting to improve your 3d scene lighting workflow. Check the list below to learn different tools and techniques to manage lighting in your 3ds max and vray scene. From below tutorials you will master the studio light setup in 3ds max, HDR image based lighting, Gamma settings, IES lighting and Volume light effect using 3ds max and vray. So check it out the tutorials provided below.
Professional Studio Lighting Setup with VRay and 3ds Max
The purpose of learning to create a studio setup is to make our subjects expressive or emotive. We want to paint them with lights in such a way that it brings out their own unique character. Take a look at any of the Renaissance paintings, and you’ll notice the beauty of light play within them. The tradition continues today, and the studio is where we can learn to master light. Therefore, we’ll be using the same approach as professional photographers to light our CG subjects. A physically correct method in which we’ll create the background, lights and camera just like a real studio environment.

How to setup HDRI lighting in 3dsmax with VRay
How to setup HDRI lighting in 3dsmax with VRay. In this video I’m showing how I setup scene lighting using a VRayLightDome and the VRayHDRI texture loaded with a HDRI (Viz-People HDRI Vol. 01 Map 03 and My own PureLIGHT No. 11).

Understanding Linear Workflow and Gamma
Why use linear workflow?
Many 3D artists finds this concept quite confusing. Therefore it’s easy to think that it doesn’t mean that much, but believe me, it does.
With Linear Workflow, the calculation of light and color through the whole process from render setup to post, will be correct. And it needs to, if you’re aiming for a photo-realistic look in your renders.
Linear Workflow is a term that tells something about how the gamma works. To understand this term, you need to know what gamma is, why it exists and how to take control over it.

Create IES Lights in 3ds Max and VRay
Hey guys, so today I’ll be showing you how to add realism to the way light projects in your scenes. Many designer lighting fixtures in the real world have their own unique signature. We’ll be taking a look at simulating these light signatures with the help of IES files.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term IES, let me break it down for you. This is a file format that all leading lighting manufacturers use to describe their catalog of lights. This is a small file that describes the distribution pattern formed by a particular real world light.
To get started, you can head over to Lithonia Lighting’s website and download every type of IES light types you can imagine for free.

Volume Light Effect With Vray Environment Fog
Volume light, also known as “God rays”, is a great effect that can add a lot to the atmospheric feel of an image. In this tutorial, I’ll demonstrate a very basic way of achieving this kind of effect using Vray environment fog.
You will learn most importantly below lessons:
- Adding vray environment effect.
- Parameters tweaking and test renders.
- Adding the fog pass on top of our beauty render.
