I’ve seen some great examples online of photo-realistic renders (say like this one for example or this one). I try to emulate the lighting and texturing but I’m not really able to get close to the desired render quality. Does anyone (or any involved in jewelry) know any websites where I can find customized styles that I can effectively just plug and play (as in drop into a project and render)?
You can use V-Ray Express
Looks good. Does Express come with V-Ray or is it something I have to buy additionally?
It’s not comes with V-ray you have to buy it .
It’s free for V-Ray 2 users…
