VRay interior night lighting

VRay Interior Night Setup

Very important to add lights gradually one by one, that’s the only way to know – how each light works! And how far it can lit your interior space.

Using Gamma 2.2 in your workflow can help to see mere detail in objects by making the entire scene have washed-out look. (Not completely washed out, but 15-20% lighter than the usual).

Remember one thing, it is much easier to remove contrast than to add it, therefore during the Night Scene Lighting Setup with VRay - make sure to have enough color depth to get the result you want. In other words – try not to over darken your scene, it will be hard to make it look well lighted.

You can also use VRay Color Correction Tool to get better understanding of your light behavior.

Hope you enjoyed those tips & Tricks for VRay Night Setup, and you can use them in your scenes.

Wish you good luck with your Night Renders!

VRay Portfolio Workshop – Early Registration

Dear Friend,
If you want to exponentially grow your 3D CAREER in the fastest time possible, this is the most important Web-page you’ll ever read.


Over the past 4 years, VRayART has coached over 1000 Architects and Interior Designers across more than 23 different countries.

AND each time our METHOD was proven to be the most successful for achieving PHOTO-Realistic LOOK!

But our Lighting & Rendering METHOD isn’t the big discovery.

And even though we’ve proven it across thousands of VRay Users in 23 different countries.

I’ve never publicly shown VRay 3.0 in REAL ACTION.

Now here’s what’s really amazing!

The big discovery is how we ultimately cracked the code to SUPER Clean 3D Renders, that could supply amazing results … Over and over again.

The fact remains that YOU and I have an incredible advantage because …

Hardly Anyone Is Using It!

In the past 6 months, we’ve performed more than 3,000 split tests across working-stations and render farms …and they all boiled down to one thing.

Fastest Path To PHOTOREALISTIC Rendering

In fact, after performing over 3,000 split tests, and analyzing over 1000 references, we’ve been able to draw a conclusion – THIS METHOD is the most Powerful Way to DEAL with Interior Renders.

Even though the process is fairly simple …

We found – that no matter what you’re trying to render, there’s pretty much a “universal formula” that can dependably turn completely awful renders into ARCH. VIZ. Masterpiece.

Uncover A Simple Five-Step Process

1. Reference Analyzing & Scene Modeling with 3Ds Max

2. VRay HDRI Ambiance Setup & Interior Lighting (Blocking)

3. Textures & Rendering Optimization (Clean Render Calc.)

4. Photographic Camera Adjustments, Framing & Tweaking

5. PRO Post Work, Portfolio Design & Styling (Photoreal Look)

The reason why it’s so simple, because it’s based on step-by-step actions that YOU can perform anytime new project comes in …and it works like a charm!

Why it Works For Everyone!

We teach YOU how to analyze and spot Rendering ERRORS, blotches, artifacts, grain & noise – AND we give you the “Ultimate Formula” to OVERCOME these challenges.

So instead of downloading scenes and spend time on trying different rendering settings – WE teach YOU to understand what settings affect rendering aspects.

“Here’s What Past Students Say About Our Workshop”


From my personal experience i can say that this is the best tutorial for Postwork in PS. The live webinars, the great responsibility of Alex for every question, his professionally make really unique this tutorial. I also learned a lot from the other students works. I have still to improve a lot, but my renderings start to become photorealistic, thanks to Alex! I’ll wait the tutorial for exterior scene, hoping it will be soon! I stay tuned from Italy!
- Jacopo Bigi


I decided to join Alex course after I saw some of his webinars. I am very happy that I have found such a great, professional guide of 3ds Max, V-Ray and Photoshop. It was a great pleasure to join to his class and have conversations. I’ve made a big progress which I couldn’t achieve by myself in such a short time.

Alex thank you very much for your advices, patience and individual approach! :)

Margaret / Małgorzata Kołtyś

These are just few comments from hundreds of satisfied students that passed our Workshop successfully and NOW they are making it BIG in their Professional LIFE!
This Is NOT For Everyone.

Here’s Who I CAN Help:

This offer is for people who are up and running already and simply want to run a lot faster and a lot farther.

1. You have to have a solid knowledge of 3Ds Max & VRay user interface already.

I don’t care how lucrative it might be.

After all, if you don’t actually implement the stuff I give you, you’re not likely to make any GOOD Portfolio, and what would be the point of that?

2. You must have a good, solid product/service and a good reputation.

Everything we do together will not only be bringing you more clients and profits, but we’ll be doing it in a way that creates MASSIVE goodwill in our market.

3. You cannot be in the “get PRO quick” or “Feed me with a spoon” space.

We’ll closely review your goals, your time and effort you are willing to put in this Workshop. All the students here for one reason – GET AMAZING PORTFOLIO within 1 MONTH.

(I’m just using this point as a “filter” to keep the time-vampires at bay.)

4. You MUST follow directions. (Don’t worry, I won’t ask you to do anything weird.)

In order for me to grant you access to my proprietary process and allow YOU to DIG into my Training System, you’re going to need to meet some strict (but reasonable) criteria.

That’s it! Those are all my requirements.

Here’s How Workshop Goes.

During the next 4 weeks we are going to work closely in our PRIVATE FORUM and get YOUR 3D Renders to the next LEVEL!.

At the beginning of every week you are going to get manual with video instructions for the next step you need to take:

Week 1 – Reference Modeling & Lighting (Blocking)

Week 2 – Textures Tweaking & Final Render (DMC Configuration)

Week 3 – Post Work & Portfolio Design (Styling)

Week 4 – Website Creation & Social Promotion (Organic Marketing)

All our steps (weeks) made from step-by-step instructions and my personal 24 hour FORUM support + Live Webinars.


At the END of each WEEK we are going to do a LIVE Webinar, to go over the comments and progress of each student during this week – at this time you’ll be able to ask me questions directly and get answers on the spot.

Live sessions meant to expose you to other students progress, and go over different ERRORS that most beginners need to deal with while building PHOTOREALISTIC Interior Spaces.

This is where you GET motivated and Inspired by others!

Get FREE Website Space for ONE Year!

If you don’t have a website yet OR you’re using some free blog hosting (like blog.spot) – I can Provide you with Domain and Unlimited Web-space for 1 YEAR – and then you can transfer it to your host OR stay with us for additional $20 per year hosting.

If you choose to implement our Social Promotion & Organic Marketing methods to your existing website – NO PROBLEM! This offer is just for those who want to LEARN how to setup & promote WORD PRESS Website/Blog.

The worst that can happen is you will get enough knowledge to promote your Website in the future.

So think about it this way:

Seriously – there’s no way this strategy shouldn’t work for you!

If you simply apply a fraction of what we give you to your WEBSITE, I promise you’ll see amazing results.

But the best that can happen is you decide to implement and deploy the process in your own ARCH. VIZ. business …and see exponential growth as a direct result.

You’ll discover all five groundbreaking steps that literally took my PORTFOLIO from a bootstrapped startup to a 100.000 DOLLAR PER YEAR EMPIRE in just 4 short years.

Here it is:

In order for us to do that, you need to have your act together.

In other words, you need to be READY.

So if you’re too busy with other things and have very limited time to put into this training, we can’t help you.

OR if you just entering the 3D World, and have no idea where your desire is, this is not for you.

But if you’re providing your clients with 3D Rendering Services and want to grow your NAME in the ARCH. VIZ. industry …we can hit it out of the park.

Sneaky Peek – Over the Shoulder

I know that 1 MONTH sounds a bit optimistic for making such a big progress, but if you stick to my instruction and follow Workshop guidelines – YOU WILL HAVE at least 4 Hyper Realistic Renders by the end of next month.

I’m also going to do one scene and demonstrate some PRO stuff – SO basically, you can repeat what I’m doing and implement it in your scene.

Things that I’m going to explore are;

- Ivy Grow 3Ds Max Plug-in for growing plants

- Particle Flow – Water (swim-pool) simulation

- Marvelous designer – Cloth simulation

…and some other cool stuff, let me surprise YOU ;)

Here’s What I Want You To Do Next

Make your research and get high resolution reference for your scene – You can have only one scene, but several photographs representing that scene.

NO 3D Renders can be used as Reference, only REAL Photos.

Building 3D Scenes from “Real (Photo) Reference” is the best way to Calibrate Your EYE Vision to natural colors and Proper Camera Exposure.

If you need help in choosing your reference, you can always discuss it with me – OR use one of our selected references in the Training System Platform.

Here’s how the process works

After successful payment you will get access to our Training System – There you’ll be able to find 3D scenes, VRay Models, Textures, Manuals, Video instructions and some References to choose from.

Everything will be broken down into stages, and you will be able to move to the next stage ONLY after completing the previous one.

So make sure you’re 100% serious about doing this Workshop with US!
