Hi ChaosGroupTV, Thanks very much for the tutorial- Really helpful! I have however found a small bug, you are unable to use the Vray sun with volumetric lighting if you created it using the 3dsMax Daylight System!

Could you please explain the practical meaning of using VrayHDRI instead of standart Bitmap map in diffuse?

Great. I liked it! Also it will be usefull to show the gizmo objects to bound the Enviromental Fog effect..| Отлично. Мне понравилось! Так же было бы полезно показать использование гизмо объектов для ограничения эффекта тумана окружения.

One of the best tutorials ever I have seen.

Thanks for adding your machine specs (I asked for that 🙂 ) – and I *love* the fact that you don’t show off V-Ray using the newest, fastest available machine on the planet – that shows great confidence in your product and respect to your clients and audience 🙂

A big massive thumbs up 🙂
