Production Render Settings Tabs

V-Ray parameters are under several tabs in the Render Setup window. Additionally, each tab is divided into several rollouts.





In V-Ray, the two tools that most greatly impact the balance of render quality vs. speed are the image sampler (under the V-Ray tab) and GI engine(s) (under the GI tab). Learning the basics of how these two features work will greatly enhance your ability to adjust settings in V-Ray and maximize image quality while keeping render times to a minimum. See the linked pages for explanations on how these features work.


IPR Render Settings

When IPR is used for rendering, V-Ray parameters are located under a single IPR tab. For more details on IPR as a whole, see the Interactive Rendering | IPR page.
