In this sketchup vray tutorial, one can learn how to use v-ray for sketchup to create clear glass, frosted glass and mirror.
To make this tutorial, v-ray material editor plays an important role. Material editor is extracted from the icon located below VRay for SketchUp tool box or from Material Editor located at Plugins V-Ray tab.
V-Ray for SketchUp ‘s Material Editor contains three parts:

B. Material Preview – The Update Preview button facilitates the users to preview the revised materials.
C. Options for material control – The options adjust with the added scene materials in section A.
This is another nice presentation from Robson Jacobsen. The tutorial will provide useful guidance on how to generate various materials keeping realistic appearance in V-ray.
