Refraction means the change of direction of a ray of light in passing at an angle from one medium to another. With V-Ray the refraction layer is used to create glass or translucent materials.
Fernando Rentas, ASGVIS 3D Artist & Trainer, will explain how to use the refraction layer to create glass or translucency materials in this video tutorial.

This video tutorial was recorded in the latest build of V-Ray for SketchUp (01.48.89). The same techniques apply to V-Ray for Rhino.
