V-Ray is the market's leading photorealistic rendering software in architectural visualization, ideal for creating everything from simple images to indiscernible images of a photograph. Light and material settings give you creative control over the visual presentation of your designs. Integration with the most intuitive software on the market, SketchUp, allows for a linear workflow, without the need for other software for making the images.

The V-Ray for SketchUp course offers in five face-to-face lessons , all the content needed to create a photorealistic rendering, a 3D photo or a 360º photo. The material given on pen-drive consists of a library of materials and textures and files that will be used in class, in your own notebook. You will learn in practice the four software modules:

No início do curso, desde a instalação, todas ferramentas, janelas e configurações serão testadas e exemplificadas, desde render interativo à profundidade de campo


Você aprenderá a importar, editar e criar diferentes materiais, entendendo como configurar cada uma de suas características


Passaremos por todos os tipos presentes de luzes, como e quando usar cada uma, incluindo a iluminação externa natural, que simula o sol durante qualquer hora do dia



Proxies, clippers e fur podem parecer complicado pelos nomes, mas você aprenderá tudo sobre como criar cortes renderizados, criar gramas foto-realistas e um modelo leve mesmo com bastante vegetação

On your computer, your way

Using your own personal computer during class, all test files, textures and images are yours for later use. No different systems or versions.

Afraid to install the software? No longer! At the beginning of the first class you will learn how to install the most current trial version of V-Ray, so that you never need to call your friend from TI again.

Uncomplicated natural lighting

V-Ray next integrates with SketchUp's native solar configuration and can simulate the hours of the day throughout the year. Want to add clouds and a realistic sky? Is easy!

Night, daytime, sunset images? You will learn everything on the course!

360º photo

Have you thought about showing your entire project in full with a 360º panorama?

With a mouse drag, all angles of your design can be viewed, providing incredible immersion in the model.

What do I need to take?

Your material needed for the class will be just your notebook, with SketchUp already installed (version 2016 or newer).

By confirming your registration, you get the material, which includes a pen-drive with all the files needed for the classes and a library of materials and textures, as well as an illustrated visual guide booklet, designed to answer configuration questions during your work.
