VRay – THE COMPLETE GUIDE – second edition is the first book in the world completely devoted to VRay. Its aim is to provide an advanced support for the specialists in this branch. All too often we lose a lot of time searching the meaning of a particular parameter. Who hasn’t spent entire days trying to understand what was wrong with their rendering? Having some ?presets? is not enough: it is necessary to understand and have knowledge of the tools daily used. This is the only way thanks to which you’ll be able to face more and more difficult tasks.

VRay – THE COMPLETE GUIDE – second edition was born thanks to two year’s hard work, during which we tried to produce a high-quality handbook committed to VRay’s users. Not just a basic list of commands, but a special tool, composed by technical and theoretical parts, by which you’ll be carried away! You’ll be able to find, through 1060 pages, 2300 images and 3200 renderings expressly created for this handbook.

Enclosed you’ll also find a DVD-ROM containing 32 animations in .mov format, bearing examples otherwise impossible to understand via images only.

It’s an unrepeatable handbook, difficult to find elsewhere: made up of 1060 pages, full color, A4 21x29x6cm (other manuals are usually smaller: 21x19x4cm). Bound with extreme care, through paperback binding stitched with wire referendum and not simply glue, it holds up through the time. The hardback cover also is hardbound disk, allowing a better usability.

The SECOND EDITION, is available only in PDF digital format and we upgrade to VRay 1.5 SP3a, with 30 new pages unpublished. For a research we make a full interactive index. Now you can quickly reach any part of the book with one click. This index is inside in the sample files you can download below.The PDF has a little watermark noninvasive with the with client info (name, address), the print, copy-paste function is disable. Plus there is a password to open the PDF, which will be used to access the private section of our FORUM, a place where to discuss directly with the author. Also, each PDF will has a little difference than the other (text changes, different images position, etc. …), which will make each copy unique and immediately recognizable The book price is 25 euro, but the old customers can buy the PDF version only for 15 euro!

Like I said in my VUE8 and Vray in 3dsmax 2011 tutorial also max 2011 its like when we all went from XP tO vista so folder change there structure. So now for Mental Ray its also different I will try to step by step.
Well now max2010 used to intall this in a folder called mentalray in the max main folder. Now in max 2011 since mentalmill has been incorporated into max2011 then now that folder is called mentalimages.
The VUE8 intallation might have created mentalray folder since it did not find one and place what it had to there.
