Creating a Scene

Ashish Dani has created the “Along the Creek” digimatte (digital photo + 3d computer images) of a Canadian stream and its surrounding trees using the new V-Ray 3.2 XfrogPlants Europe 3 library. Watch the breakdown video below or see an in-depth explanation of the shaders and render passes here.
