Welcome to SketchUp, Vray and other Resources

Everyone is capable of learning. Learning is part of life. It is a social process of living and bringing everyone to share their inherited resources and discoveries. All of us can influence the life of others through sharing and caring. It is our belief that everyone should be a lifelong learner.

I am putting very important visualization resources and series: tutorials, tips, tricks, VRAY materials and settings, and mini-the-making (MTM) processes.

Tutorial: Water Ripples in Vray Sketchup


Ferry Sugianto shared this Realistic water ripple tutorial with us. He shared this tutorial at Kampoeng 3D. 

Below is the effect of bump ripples.

You can download Ferry's file HERE

Step 1: The SketchUp Scene

Image

Step 2: The Water Ripple Material.

This is the water material. It will be loaded in both diffuse and bump slot. 


Step 3: Re-scaling the Map

Once the map has been applied as diffuse material. You can rescale and adjust the position in SketchUp. In the image below, the center of the water ripple was position under the floating flower.

Image


Step 4: Transparency.

The transparency of the water material was adjusted to "white". It means the water is 100% transparent.

Image


Step 5: Vray Reflection setting of the water

In Vray, you need to apply reflection layer, use Fresnel map type and adjust the Index of Refraction (IOR) to 1.33.

Image


Step 6: Refraction layer

Create Refraction Layer for the water material. To do is, right click and add refraction layer. Set the color to white and enter a color multiplier of 0.05 with Affect alpha and Affect Shadows on.

Image

Step 7. The Bump shader

Click the bump slot and load the same diffuse map on this slot. Do not change anything. Below shows the ripple effect. But some of the areas are so static.

Image

7. Noise displacement

In order to disturb the water surface, create a subtle displacement using "Noise texture". Below is the Noise texture displacement setting.

Image

Now the water surface was displaced showing a much realistic effect.

Image

Some render employing the above tutorial.

  14. Hola, SIGUIENDO tus Pasos en la configuracion, Cuando renderizo veo Mucho movimiento en el agua en general, no se ve calmada y eso impide Que se Vean Perfectamente las ondulaciones ¿Por que sera, Que Estoy Haciendo mal si sigo Los pasos descriptos?
