F-22 Close Air Support ~ Vray 3D Render

I created this 900 frame concept animation render using 3DS Max 2013. I rendered the different scenes using the VRAY renderer. Average render time per frame was about 1 minute and 30 seconds. I used Global Illumination with a spherical map that I created in Vue xStream, to provide the bulk of the lighting. I also added one single VRAY light for the sun direction.


Here are some wire frame renders of the scene, including one with a convoy.




I hope to render the final animation sequence and see how long VRAY takes to complete the 900 frames.

This is the Spherical sky I created in Vue, that served as the ambient light source and sky dome. If you need to download a copy of the sky texture, do let me know in the comments.
