How to use ies light in vray for rhino

November 29th, 2010 1 comment

This tutorial will teach you how to use ies light in your sense. You need to install vray for rhino first to complete this tutorial.

1. Open your interior scene and then set Vray for rhino as the current rendering engine.

Tips: The scale of the objects is important, 1:1 is better.

2. In the Rhino command prompt, type visIESlight to create a light.

3. In the Light Properties window, click on Browse button to add an existing ies file you want to use.

4. Modify other parameters to meet your needs. It seems that the intensity of the light cannot change in this version. Done.

It seems that Mcneel started testing a new user interface with the cool tab function. It allows you to easily intergrate your most used tools into Tabs.

If you want to switch to new ui, just type the command: testfancytoolbars and open your default toolbar layout(*.tb) or the  file (*.rui) of  Automatic Generation. The program will convert the toolbars you tick into tabs Automatic, You can also drag other toolbars whatever you want to insert an existing tab.

Other Commands:







You can even change the tab/background/… colors to match your taste.

Do you have some ideas about this new user interface? For me, it looks ok.
