This course will focus on furthering students' knowledge of rendering in Maya. We will explore the different approaches of popular renderers, such as Mental Ray, Vray, Arnold, RenderMan and Octane. Scene preparation, lighting, interiors vs. exteriors, rendering in linear space, optimization tricks and use cases for the various renderers will be addressed, and utilization of render farms will be discussed. By the end of the course, students will have a much better understanding of rendering engines and proper workflow habits.
