The Creative Challenge (Day 11)


V-Ray for Cinema 4d Rocks Socks

I’ve been using Cinema 4d since R11, but never made the jump to V-Ray for rendering. “Too slow”, I thought. “Not worth it.” I was wrong. V-Ray is an absolutely incredible render engine across the board. In order to use V-Ray for Cinema 4d, you must also install the V-Ray Bridge plugin. While a tad confusing at first, I eventually figured it out, and now it works like a charm. Still figuring out how to make things look good in V-Ray, but it is inevitable that I’ll figure it out eventually. Try your hand at V-Ray!

Plug from the V-Ray for C4D site:

V-Ray today is one of highest quality render tools available for production. It is widely used by professional CG artists and visualizations firms worldwide. Its proven, beautiful and super realistic image quality, at unsurpassed render speed, attracts many users from all areas. VRAYforC4D is the Cinema4D native incarnation of this great engine. It enables you to use V-Ray directly within Cinema4D using the typical C4D like workflow. V-Ray is the de-facto standard in architecture & design visualization, car rendering, TV commercials, and many more areas, like in recent Hollywood Movies like 3D Blockbuster AVATAR. Its good, its fast, its stable!
