In this tutorial you will learn how to light and set up a realistic render with V-Ray 2.0 and 3ds Max 2011. We will also look at how to use IES lights, set lighting with V-Ray sun and V-Ray sky, use the V-Ray physical camera, and set up your render.
To start I have used V-Ray plane lights, V-Ray sun and sky, photometric IES lights and V-Ray camera. I used three plane lights for each window. All the lights have the same settings, which you can see in the right-hand panel of Fig.01. This is how it looks from the top view.

As I mentioned before, I have also used V-Ray sun and sky, and this is the position for the V-Ray sun and the settings (Fig.02).

Now this it is time for the V-Ray camera - here are the settings (Fig.03).

For the indoor lighting I used the photometric IES lighting with V-Ray. I did not use the V-Ray IES because the standard photometric lights have more customizable settings/parameters. All the photometric lights have the same settings; this is a screenshot of all the IES lights in the scene and the settings (Fig.04).

And this is what the IES look like (Fig.05).

How did you make those books ? And another thing! What settings do I have to use with the IES light to get soft shadows from it, because I get really sharp shadow edges when the light hits an object.
