the Shadow bias works the other way for me:)
If i put in low number (like in the Tutorial) the shadows goes far and if i put in bigger number (7-8) the shadows are close to the object🙂
am i doing something wrong?:D

@pmaterazzi if you use vray cameras you can adjust the intensity of the ISO and the speed of the shooter… among a lot of things that will allow you to play even more with those values without reducing them so much😉

@hristousa if you want nice clouds, you better go for a HDRI

Thanks, but when I want to render clouds (volume fog used), there are so bright white and I can’t see them. Is there a way to make them “visible”? Also, I’m searching for good tutorial about creating clouds.. :[

@russellmasc check the color brightness or verify the application of the material on the subject and also the field of specular color.

vraysun is not ment to work together with a standart max camera. Turning the sun’s intensity value down to 0.0xxx is like creating a smart workaround around the advantages of the vray skylight system.😉
Use a vray physical cam instead, leave the sun’s intensity value where it is at 1.0 and adjust the film speed/shutter speed of the vray physical cam from 200 down to e.g. 30, or something in the range.

in the tutorial i explain that u must set the intensity to very low levels in the vray sun parameters, something like 0.02

awesome work man, answered a lot of questions i had about the vray sun while keeping it simple. now my outdoor scene looks so much better when i actually have an understanding of what the different settings do.
