What are smart materials ?
Smart materials are responsive complex materials, a collection of stacked layers, responsive mainly to curvature and ambiante occlusion nodes and maps creating dirt, edge scratches, worn surfaces and corners, dusty surfaces and corner automatically utilizing the informations generated by the model topology throught those nodes.
These materials are widely used in the gaming industry and Films CGI when texturing a UVWunwrapped model.
Why V-Ray Smart Materials and what does it mean for Archviz and CGI:
Vray is the most used render engine in the world, and when poeple are trying to make photoreal renders in both archviz or movies CGI, they want those extra details on their models to make them feel real.
In order to do that, they go throught the process of UWVunwrapping their models, baking maps, and painting them using third party software like Substance or 3DCoat, which takes a lot of time to do, then exporting those maps that are unique only to that specifique model.
But using V-ray Smart Materials they can acheive similar results faster and the best of all they can apply those Smart materials to any model with adjusting UVs only and they would have amazing results in no time.
So instead of UVWunrapping a chair, a table, a closet and going throught all the process of painting each of them; in 3ds max it is just simpler to apply these V-RAY SMART MATERIALS and get the result that you desire in no time.
