Render help...new to vray (30 day trial)

Recommended Posts

Trying to get a quick render but need roof shingles more charcoal/black (as shown in material preview). Renders out quite light and greenish (even more so than showing up in this image).  I used stock vray roof tile texture.  Any help for this?

ps  I need background black so in PS the image can be easily selected to be pasted in site photo.

The stock VRay materials leave a lot to be desired, IMHO.  

If you can find another .vrmat or .vismat asphalt roof material to use, I think you will find it easier.  Otherwise, you need to edit the Diffuse Color Texture Map, Image file.  Remove the Green tint in Photoshop and then reapply...

Thank you Justin.  Seems like the stock vray vismat files are locked, but was able to "save as" and edit the texture map file in PS.  I had forgotten the procedure for doing this...I used Maxwell Render when it first came out but have not used any 3D or render program since I've been retired (abt 7 yrs or so), just doing a little on the side now.  Got that resolved with your help.
