What's everyones thoughts on Vray and Mental Ray? Is one superior over the other or are they both good in their own unique ways? I have heard a few people say that Vray is faster than Mental Ray but on the otherhand some people swear that they are about the same. What do you guys think?
ilm uses mental ray for a lot of their large heavy scenes that would crash vray.
mental ray gives you more control, almost to the point where you have no idea if a attribute will really have a noticeable effect
vray gives you a nice result faster, but mental ray can achieve the same result
Could someone post a guide to the best Vray render settings for if you're churning out animations? I'm on an i7 and it almost takes up 4 minutes per frame.
> different material settings
> different light setting
how are you trying to make a comparison if they're not even the same scene
that's normal. just did a 360 view of a house with 36 frames. each frame took 1-2 hours to render on an i7-4770
also i just switched from vray to corona and corona is just so much simpler and more fluid for realistic renders.
