Getting Started Rendering in Enscape (EP 1) - Introduction to Enscape - REAL TIME RENDERING!
 
06:24
In this video, we check out Enscape - a real-time 3D rendering extension for SketchUp. In Enscape, your model is rendered in real-time, allowing you to fly around, make changes, and adjust settings, and see your changes in a live rendering!

Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. One of the things I want to do on this channel is provide resources for multiple different rendering programs. Today, I wanted to do an introduction to a real-time rendering program that’s really paving the way for easier, quicker renderings! Today I wanted to give an introduction to Enscape. Before I get started, model credit for this model is the Beach House by SZ Christophe. Enscape, unlike programs like Vray, is what’s known as a real-time rendering program. What this means is that instead of having long render times, Enscape actually generates your renderings as you move your camera. This means that you can literally do live, rendered walkthroughs of your models! One of the things that makes Enscape so powerful is how simple it is. All you have to do is press the play button and your rendering will start. This is the rendering that is produced without you having to make any changes at all. Material changes are also easy – by default, Enscape checks material names within your model, then automatically maps properties based on keywords like grass, metal, wood, and more. In addition, you can also custom edit material settings within your renders. Settings are easy to manage, and far less complex than many static rendering programs. You can edit settings as you go, testing and adjusting very quickly. Camera setting adjustments update on the fly, meaning you don’t have to run multiple different test renders in order to get your scenes just right. The built-in environment settings are VERY easy to use, allowing you to customize backgrounds, cloud settings, time of day, and more. In addition, you can also import your own HDRI images for custom backgrounds. Another cool feature is the grass rendering function. This function will search your material names for the word “grass,” and when enabled, will render grass at all those locations. Enscape also includes support for artificial light sources, light point-lights and spotlights, allowing for great night-time renderings or interior renderings. Enscape proxies allow you to import high polygon objects into your model for rendering without slowing down your SketchUp model. Export options include the ability to export still images, animation files, and panoramas, as well as being able to view your models in Virtual Reality. It does operate on a yearly subscription model, so there is definitely a cost associated there, but if you run any kind of a business that does visualization, the ease of use and the amount of time saved will likely quickly offset the cost. If you want to learn more about Enscape, you can check it out at www.enscape3d.com. From an ease of use standpoint, at the moment Enscape is probably the easiest to use rendering extension that I’ve tried. You literally just click play and you’re inside your model.

Getting Started Rendering in Vray (EP 4) - Interior Lighting in Vray Using Artificial Lighting
 
19:54
In this Vray and SketchUp tutorial, learn about the different kinds of artificial lights you can use to light your interior renders! Learn to use sphere lights, spotlights, emissive materials, and more to create realistic lighting in your interior models! MY YOUTUBE SETUP https://kit.com/TheSketchUpEssentials/sketchup-modeling-and-youtube-creation-kit Check Us Out on - Website - http://www.therenderingessentials.com Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/easyrenders In this video, we’re going to talk about lighting an interior model with artificial lights in Vray. If you’re looking for more rendering Tutorials every week, make sure to click that subscribe button. Today I wanted to talk about some of your options for lighting an interior model within SketchUp without using the environment lighting. You’ve basically got a few different options for lighting your interior models with artificial lights – this is assuming that you don’t want to light your model with the environment lighting in Vray (sunlight and background lights). To start off, turn the sunlight off within your lighting section of your Vray asset editor. You’ll note that you still get some exterior lighting from your background image, which you can adjust within your settings section. Now, let’s take a look at some different lighting options. To start off, let’s add a sphere light to your model. Basically, a sphere light is a light that emits light in all different directions equally. You can adjust the power of the light both by scaling it up and down, and by adjusting the intensity within the lighting section of your asset editor. One thing to note – if your image is not bright enough, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to go in and run the intensity of your lights up to a super high level. Instead, go in to your camera settings and adjust your camera exposure to bring your lighting level up. In this case, I’m going to take this point light and adjust its size so that it fits within this lamp in my model. I’m also going to adjust the radiant power units to Watts and set it to something like 80. Though the visible wattage of the light doesn’t really correspond with the power usage of bulbs, this still allows me to set my lighting in a way that it makes sense to me. Now let’s add a couple spot lights to our image. While a sphere light is a light that shines in all different directions, a spotlight is basically a light with a direction associated with it. Note that when setting your spotlight, you can either just single click in order to place it, or you can hold the shift key to set things like cone angle, penumbra falloff, and more. Note that when we initially set this light, the light itself casts a very defined edge, which isn’t very realistic, and doesn’t allow the light to really move into the rest of the room. However, if we adjust the Penumbra angle setting, you’ll note that your light edges become more blurry, and more light also makes its way into the room. We’re not going to talk about IES lights too much in this video, but these are basically lighting information files that you can download from lighting manufacturers to simulate properties of actual lights, like bulbs, etc. An omni light is very similar to a sphere light. Honestly, I’m having a bit of trouble telling when to use which one, so any of you Vray experts out there leave a comment down below and let me know! Finally, you can also create light within an interior render using an emissive material. An emissive material is basically a material within Vray that emits light. You can use this for things like TV screens, lighting faces, and more. In this case, I’m going to add an emissive TV screen, as well as an emissive faced material at my spotlights, otherwise they look funny. Once you have your lighting the way that you want it, you can do a non-interactive render to create a more detailed rendering from your image.

Getting Started Rendering in Vray (EP 6) Creating GRASS IN VRAY for SketchUp with Vray Fur
 
10:36
In today’s video, I wanted to talk about how to add grass to your renderings in Vray for SketchUp using Vray’s fur creation function! MY YOUTUBE SETUP https://kit.com/TheSketchUpEssentials/sketchup-modeling-and-youtube-creation-kit Check Us Out on - Website - http://www.therenderingessentials.com Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/easyrenders Disclaimers: all opinions are my own, sponsors are acknowledged. Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. In this case, I’ve created a bit of rolling terrain using sandbox tools within SketchUp, and it’s in there as a grouped face. To designate this as a Vray grass object, go up into the Vray Objects toolbar and select the option for “Add Fur to Selection.” This will designate your selected object as a grass object – notice that you get little icons around your group indicating the fur object. Now, if you run an interactive render and zoom in, you’ll notice that Vray is adding fur to your object within your render, even though the geometry doesn’t physically exist within SketchUp. Now, let’s make a couple changes. The first thing to change is that we want to add some color to your grass. To make changes to Vray objects, we need to go into the asset editor, then go down to the material dropdown. From there, you can apply a material to your grass. I believe that for a color to show up in your dropdown, it may need to be in your model, so you can just create a quick face and apply the color you want for your grass, then it will show up in the dropdown. One thing you’ll notice is that the grass doesn’t have a background color. We can change this by applying a color to the outside of our grass group. In this case, I’m actually going to apply one of SketchUp’s grass materials rather than a solid color to break up the surface a bit more. Now, let’s take a look at some of the actual grass settings in our model. The first section allows you to adjust the amount of grass being applied to your face – larger values add more grass, smaller values less. Length, thickness, taper, gravity, and bend all adjust the way your grass looks. For example, if you want longer grass, you can adjust the length slider. Thickness adjusts how thick the actual grass blades are. Taper will adjust if your grass goes from thick at the base to thin at the tip. Gravity and bend will change how much your blades bend over. Global scale adjusts the overall size of each piece of grass. Curl will add curl to the fur. Level of distance will adjust the amount of grass that’s shown as the camera gets further away from the camera. This can make your renders faster as Vray doesn’t have to calculate all the
VRAY GLASS SETTINGS TUTORIAL - Reflection Settings in Vray for SketchUp
 
14:48
Learn the basics of working with glass in VRAY in this rendering tutorial. This video will focus on the reflection settings, and the next video will focus on the settings associated with refraction.

Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. In today’s video, I want to talk a bit about some of the settings for rendering with Glass in Vray. The first thing I wanted to do is teach you how to apply a Vray glass material, but then also how to apply a glass material preset to your SketchUp materials to make them more realistic. 3D Warehouse Model Credit: Wine Bottle with Label, Glasses by BennitoJuarez We’re going to use the studio that we created in a previous video for our lighting. To start off, we’re going to apply a Vray light material to the glass on the left. Do this by double clicking into your component, then going into Vray, picking a glass material, and selecting “Add to scene.” You can then apply the material by right clicking and clicking “Apply material to selection.” The nice thing about this material is that it comes with glass presets already populated. Now let’s apply a SketchUp material to the wine glass on the right. In this case, we’ll just apply a white color and reduce the opacity down to around 10% in the materials editor. This will make the material see-through. For this material, since it’s a SketchUp material, we need to apply a Vray preset to it. To do this, go in to your material editor, select your material, and under “Quick Settings,” apply the material preset for glass. You can see how now this material has many of the Vray glass settings applied to it that you can now adjust, like IOR, etc. Finally, we can apply a glass material preset to the material of the wine glass Now let’s take a look at a few of the different Reflection settings within the glass. You can adjust the color of the reflections in your glass by changing the color in the color slider. The darker the color you select here, the less your material is going to reflect. Notice that if I set this color to black, my material doesn’t really reflect at all. Your refraction color is going to adjust the color of the material itself. Notice that the darker this setting is, the less refraction is going to happen in your glass, and the less light will make it through. For example, fully white makes this glass a bit difficult to see. Fully dark makes this so you can’t see through it at all. We’re going to set this just above 0 so we can see a bit. First, let’s take a look at the Fresnel. If you uncheck the box for Fresnel, you’ll notice that your material is much less realistic. This is a fairly complicated concept, but basically, the Fresnel simulates the effect in real life where the reflection strength of something is different depending on your viewing angle. I’ve linked to an article below that talks about Fresnel more, but as a general rule, just keep this box checked. The IOR is going to affect how strong the reflection is within your rendering – a higher value = more reflective, and a lower value is going to be less reflective. The Glossiness value is going to affect how blurry your reflections will be. Let’s adjust the glossiness of our wine glass black material to .8. Notice that the reflection becomes much more blurry. Note that while this can create effects like frosted glass, it also increases your render times significantly.

Import Vray Proxies WITH MATERIALS - Vray 3.6 for SketchUp Tutorial

Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. Last week, we talked about how to use Vray proxies to use high polygon, realistic models in your renderings without slowing down your SketchUp models. This week, I want to talk about how to save those proxies and import them into a separate SketchUp model. To start off, 3D Warehouse model credit for this model goes to Daka Design, who has a great collection of render ready models on their page in the 3D warehouse. This model in particular is the Wire Frame Chair. I’ve linked to their page and to this model in the notes down below. Daka Design Page – https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/by/Daka-Design?nav=models Wire Frame Chair - https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/ee697759-8958-4cc4-9cb8-e452b016b32a/Wire-Frame-Chair You can see when I do an interactive render of this chair, it looks really good without needing much tweaking. Now, let’s export this model as a proxy. To do this, select your model, then go into the “Vray Objects” toolbar and select the option for “Export Proxy.” Select a location for this file, then pick a preview type. In my case, I’m going to leave this as “Refined Clustering,” and drag my faces in preview option down to something like 5000. Make sure the option for “Replace object with proxy” is selected, then click export. Your chair has been replaced with a much more lightweight proxy model. If you were to click the interactive render button, you can see that the actual model still gets rendered within Vray. Before we try to import our proxy into a different file, let’s take a look at our materials list. You’ll notice after you export your proxy, there’s a multiple material group contained in your materials list. If you click on this, you’ll note that it has materials included for all the materials that contained in your proxy. We’re going to need to save a copy of this multi-material group. To do this, simply click on the save button at the bottom of the page and save this file to a location of your choosing. Now, let’s open up another model and try to import our proxy. To do this, click the import proxy button in your Vray Objects menu. This will bring your proxy into your new model. However, if we were to run an interactive render, you’ll notice that your materials did not get brought in with the proxy model, which is why we had to save them from our other model. We’re going to need to import our materials into this model so that it renders correctly. To do this, first we need to import the material group that we saved by clicking the “import VRMAT file” button at the bottom of the list. Navigate to the file you saved and click the “Open” button. This will bring in the multi material group that you saved into Vray. Now, we need to apply it to our chair. When you first brought your chair in, it should have created a multi material group for the materials within your proxy, as well as materials for each individual material.
BEST TIP for Rendering Photorealistic Materials!

Getting Started Rendering in Vray (EP 5) - BUMP MAPS vs DISPLACEMENT MAPS in Vray for SketchUp
 
15:01
In today's video, learn to use Bump Maps and Displacement maps in Vray for SketchUp to create realistic rough surfaces in your renderings. In addition, learn the benefits of both Bump Maps and Displacement maps, and when to use each of them in your Vray Renderings! MY YOUTUBE SETUP https://kit.com/TheSketchUpEssentials/sketchup-modeling-and-youtube-creation-kit Check Us Out on - Website - http://www.therenderingessentials.com Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/easyrenders Disclaimers: all opinions are my own, sponsors are acknowledged. Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. In this video, I want to talk about the difference between bump mapping and displacement mapping in Vray for SketchUp. Both of these options are designed to help simulate the bumps and roughness that naturally come with materials in the real world without having to actually model that detail. BUMP MAPPING Bump mapping uses an image in order to simulate bumps on a flat face. Basically, Vray will use the texture image to determine where it should simulate bumpiness within your model. It’s basically a shading effect applied to your model. To test this, let’s add a bump map to a simple material from SketchUp. To do this, start by applying a color texture to your face in SketchUp. Then, go into your maps section of your materials editor and add a bump map material. As you can see, in your rendering, you know have that bump map applied to your white material. The best way to do this is to use a texture type that actually has a bump map image associated with it. If you have an actual map of your material, you’ll notice that your result is much better. The Vray materials built into Vray have actual bump map images associated with them that help you get a much better result. You can adjust the strength of the bump using the “Amount” slider in the maps area of your materials editor. DISPLACEMENT MAPPING One of the drawbacks of bump mapping is that sometimes, you might not be able to achieve the depth that you’re looking for with a bump map, so you may want to try a displacement map instead. What a displacement map does is actually move your geometry within your render to give you an accurate simulation of a rough material. So the first thing to note when working with displacement mapping (at least in my experience), is that it really works best with materials applied to groups of geometry. I was not able to get it working with raw geometry. Notice that when you run your render now, Vray is actually changing the location of the geometry within your face, rather than just simulating a bump with light. You can adjust how strong this effect is by adjusting the amount setting within Vray. This will also work with your built-in Vray materials, just make sure to go in and apply your bump map to your displacement map. Notice that the materials themselves simulate the roughness of the material much more accurately with a displacement map. However, you’ll also notice that displacement maps take SIGNIFICANTLY more time to render that bump maps, so you may not want to use them unless you’re trying to simulate fine detail. Larger edge length = faster render times, lower quality Once you’ve grouped your geometry, you’re then going to go in and enable displacement mapping in the material settings. You can then apply a map in the same way that we applied the bump map material.

Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. In today’s video, we’re going to talk about using the landscape paint tools in Lumion to customize your landscapes. One of the most powerful things about Lumion is its ability to quickly customize landscapes – in this case, I wanted to talk a bit about how to use the landscape paint tools. These tools allow you to paint different materials on your landscapes, setting the kind of landscape they are. Each one of these materials is a material you can paint on a Lumion landscape type. By clicking the little arrow above, you can set the material – Lumion has quite the selection of materials that you can choose from. Note that one material drives where the grass is located at the moment – you can set this by clicking on the corner of each material type to assign grass to that slot. To add grass to your model, use this material. The brush settings are very similar to the settings in the terrain editor, allowing you to adjust your brush size and the speed at which the material is applied. In addition though, is a slider that allows you to set the size of the image that’s getting tiled by the materials. The landscape type option allows you to set the kind of scene you’re going to have – meaning you can change your landscape types to snowy, red rocks, desert, green. Note that when you do this, all 4 of your material types change. Finally, you can also adjust the size and type of side rock that’s shown in Lumion – this is the rock that shows up over a certain slope.

LUMION LIVE SYNC TUTORIAL - Update Automatically from SketchUp to Lumion
 
06:32
In this video, we talk about Live Sync - Lumion's SketchUp extension that allows Lumion to live update any changes to your SketchUp model in real-time! One of the most powerful new features contained in Lumion 8 is the ability to change your models directly within SketchUp and have them also change within Lumion. This means that now instead of making changes and having to re-import your model constantly, you can simply make a change in your SketchUp model and it will automatically update. That can be valuable for many different things. For example, this is a 3D warehouse model that I pulled down, and it has trees included. As you know, Lumion has a great library of trees, so maybe the trees you had in the SketchUp model initially aren’t a great fit. You don’t even have to delete them, you can simply hide them. To use Livesync, you need to download and install the SketchUp livesync app from the 3D Warehouse. You can find it by opening up the 3D Warehouse and searching for “Lumion.” Once you’ve installed the app, it’s simply a question of importing your SketchUp model into Lumion, then just clicking the “Play” button in the app in SketchUp. Now any changes you make in the SketchUp model will reflect in Lumion itself. Note that you have the option to synchronize your camera view between Lumion and SketchUp, or you can turn it off. In this case, let’s go in and make a couple of quick changes, then we’ll use a preset to quickly export a camera view of our model.

Getting Started Rendering in Vray (EP 7) - RENDERING WITH VRAY PROXIES in SketchUp
 
13:52
In this Vray 3.6 for SketchUp tutorial, learn to use Vray proxies to create high quality renderings with high polygon models without slowing down your SketchUp models! MY YOUTUBE SETUP https://kit.com/TheSketchUpEssentials/sketchup-modeling-and-youtube-creation-kit Check Us Out on - Website - http://www.therenderingessentials.com Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/easyrenders Disclaimers: all opinions are my own, sponsors are acknowledged. Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. In today's video, we're going to talk about using Vray proxies to speed up your rendering models. Basically, a proxy is a replacement within your model that is used to take the place of a high polygon model. This can be especially useful because SketchUp doesn't always handle very high polygon models very well. However, that being said, usually the most realistic models for rendering are also high polygon, so we can use proxies to bring those items into our renderings without having to bring them into SketchUp. Vray allows you to export your object as a proxy file, will import as a normal mesh at render time only. Let’s say, for example, that we want to render these 3 trees (trees are from Skatter’s model library). They’re very detailed, and contain a LOT of geometry. If you look at the model size for just these 3 trees, it’s over 61 MB. If we were to add a lot of these trees, our SketchUp model would quickly become unusable from just the amount of geometry in the trees. I do want to note that Skatter also has some built-in tools for creating render only models that we’ll discuss in a future video. However, in this case, I want to focus specifically on Vray Proxies. What I want to do is export each one of these trees to a render proxy model (or a VRMesh file). That way, when we create our render, Vray can reference these models, but without all of the geometry being in our actual model. When we click the create Vray proxy button, we’re going to be given a series of options. These will affect the size of the object that’s left in your model once you export your proxy. Basically, they allow you to pick how realistic the proxy that’s left is. You basically are given 3 options for how the proxy is created. Face Skipping – This is the fastest and lightest weight proxy you can create. It will simply display random faces from your original mesh. Vertex Clustering – This method uses a grid to reduce the amount of geometry in your proxy model. It doesn’t necessarily keep all the fine details, but creates a decent approximation of your object. Refined Clustering – This is a two step process within Vray – it uses vertex clustering to start your proxy creation, then finishes your proxy off with an algorithm. This creates the most detailed proxies, but also the slowest. You can also adjust the number of number of faces created in your proxy using the proxy slider. Overwrite existing files allows you to save over any mesh file that might exist in your model in the location you’re trying to save. Replace object with proxy will swap out your selected geometry with your proxy. Otherwise, this will create your Vrmesh, but it won’t remove the base geometry from your model. You can adjust the way that your proxies preview in your Vray asset editor – there are options for Proxy Preview - Shows your proxies exactly as you created them Whole Mesh – Displays the original object geometry within your model. Note that this can be very slow Bounding Box – this creates a box within the boundary of the object group – it’s basically good for showing the location of your proxies without showing your details Point (Origin) – shows basically 4 points at the boundary of your proxy, as well as the proxy origin point of the axes Custom Preview – theoretically the idea behind this one is to allow you to change the proxy file without updating the preview geometry Note that you can also import proxy objects into your models in much the same way that you can import components, allowing you to create a library of objects that you can import later. However, you’re also going to need to export your materials for import into your object in the future. I’m going to cover this in my next video.

Getting Started Rendering in Lumion (EP 2) - How to CREATE TERRAIN!
 
12:36
In this video, learn how to use all of the terrain editing tools contained in Lumion! Lumion, as many of you know, is a very sophisticated real-time rendering program that contains several great tools for creating custom terrains in your renderings! LUMION DOWNLOAD http://www.lumion.com MY YOUTUBE SETUP https://kit.com/TheSketchUpEssentials/sketchup-modeling-and-youtube-creation-kit Check Us Out on - Website - http://www.therenderingessentials.com Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/easyrenders Disclaimers: all opinions are my own, sponsors are acknowledged. Product Links in the description are typically affiliate links that let you help support the channel at no extra cost. One of the great things about Lumion is how easy it is to create different sites and landscapes. It has a number of different brushes and tools designed to help you edit your terrain however it needs to be. Height Tool This tool allows you to adjust the height of different terrain within Lumion. Basically, it allows you to move terrain up and down. There are several different tools contained in this toolset that can be helpful for you. Let’s start by going through how all of these tools are going to work. When you click on a tool, you’re going to get a circle around your cursor showing you what area the tool is going to affect. Before we start adjusting terrain, notice that you can adjust the size of this circle using the brush size, as well as the speed that terrain is adjusting using the brush speed option. Raise Terrain – This tool will raise terrain within your model, allowing you to create hills, berms, and more. Lower Terrain – Like it sounds, this tool will lower your terrain within your model. If you lower your terrain so that it goes steeper than a certain angle, Lumion will automatically start displaying rock in those areas. Fun tip – you can use the water tool to create lakes using the lower terrain tool. Simply bring in a piece of water, then move it to the height of any lowered terrain you’ve created. You can move it up and down to quickly create a lake! Flatten Terrain – Does just what it sounds like – it flattens terrain in your model – by moving geometry up and down. Great for creating building slab areas and other things that require flat terrain. Jitter Terrain – Does the exact opposite of flatten terrain – it randomly adds variations to your terrain. The longer you hold, the more pronounced the variations get. If you hold long enough, you can use jitter terrain to add mountains, or do a quick click to add a randomness to open spaces to make them look more natural. Smooth Terrain – Smooth terrain will take all the different variations within your terrain and make them less pronounced, allowing a much less rough type of site design. Flatten Terrain Map This tool completely flattens your map, so if you want to start over, do this! Load Terrain Map This allows you to import heightmaps into your models for quick terrain creation. Will talk more about this in a future video – the trick on this one is finding the heightmap you need. Save terrain map This allows you to save your current terrain for use later.
