SketchUP & VRay from Start to Finish by Omar Estevez

Omar Estevez wanted to help new V-Ray for SketchUP users to learn some basic V-Ray skills, so he created a series of tutorials that explain the complete rendering process from start to finish. The videos are divided into three major categories, Illumination, Materials, and Post Production, with ten videos total. Enjoy!

This is the link to the original post over at ASGVIS website… but you have all videos embedded here too and the scene & materials download link below the videos.

Yes this is great training and I'm sure I will learn from it. But I don't think

he understands what it's like being a beginner. For example he just 

casually says to control the shadows with SketchUp, but if you click

on Shadows in the Window drop-down, you will find many many

settings with no idea how to do anything with shadows. And no matter

what you do in that shadows dialog, nothing changes with the Vray

rendering, THAT is still overexposed with the same shadows. My point

is, he is assuming we already know a lot of things. And without knowing

those things that he assumes we already know, we can't move on to the

next operation.
