Vray Set reflectionSamples0 2013/02/26
here we go with the first free download. a script for Maya and Vray to controll the Reflection Samples.
a lot of people know this problem, the deadline is near, the renderings are slow and the 2d-people are using the whole farm (because they are more important). so first step, reduce the rendertime. and the struggle to keep the balance between noise free and fast is always hard to find with vray. i mean, its odd that increasing some samples can speed up the whole render process. samples like the reflection samples. that’s why i wrote this small script. when i am setting up my materials, i am often just using the default samples and then tweak it for the final scene. so all this small script does is changing the amount of reflectionSamples for multiple vray Materials depending on the glossiness.
will post a small tutorial/ collection of informations about sampling in vray soon. stay alertTags: freebie, maya, script, vray
