This tutorial covers the full range of Maya's fast subsurface shaders, with a detailed examination of how to make human skin and render it in mental ray.
We will begin with a clear definition and explanation of the complex lighting behavior of subsurface scatter. Then we will examine how the set of 10 Maya shaders are used to simulate this lighting effect. Detailed examinations of all subsurface scatter shader variables are demonstrated with examples in a variety of lighting conditions. The last set of lessons goes deeper into creating shader networks for human skin.

V-Ray for Maya enables the rendering of even larger scenes with greater complexity and artists can rely on a faster rendering process. The comprehensive list of features provided by V-Ray for Maya includes true 3D Motion Blur, Sun & Sky procedural lighting system, Physical camera for matching live footage, Environment Fog, a set of Sub-Surface Scattering shaders and many others. With official release of V-Ray for Maya in August 2009 V-Ray rendering solutions confirmed their image of indispensable tool that is always there help artists transform even the most ambitious creative visions into reality for both less time and lower cost without sacrificing quality.

Some start-up presets for working in Vray for maya and also in Arnold for maya. I use it often. Using presets means saving a lot of time for initializing. Some materials are from official websites of the software companies. Some are self made. Hope it helps.

In this DVD, Alex thoroughly covers how to create realistic plants using Maya, Paint Effects and Mental Ray. We begin by evaluating the default paint effects library and how to convert the strokes into renderable geometry with mia Materials. Using Physical Sun/Sky, we create more photorealistic renders through the creation of our own materials in a tonemapped workflow circumventing the default shaders created by Paint Effects. Everything necessary to create double sided shaders with realistic glossy reflections and translucency is demonstrated in detail. We look at mapping all relevant paramaters for more believable shaders via diffuse, bump, reflection and translucency, including how to organize UVs into tiles for variety in our leaf textures. We take an in-depth look at creating ivy with Paint Effects and the Ivy Generator tool and incorporate the discussed techniques for plants and ivy into a cliff scene.

In this course we will learn how the mental ray Production Shaders can be used to take our Maya renders to a new level of realism and efficiency.
Topics include rendering instantaneous motion blur using the mip_motionblur node, using the mip_card_opacity node to render accurate depth and normal passes, re-rendering portions of our images using the mip_render_subset node, compositing our 3D objects into live-action environments using the mip_cameramap, mip_matteshadow, and mip_mirrorball nodes, as well as many other mental ray Production Shaders found within Maya.
