ADAPTIVE LIGHTS

New algorithm dramatically speeds up rendering in scenes with many lights.

IMPROVED V-RAY GPU RENDERING

Significant speed improvements and major new features added, including On-demand Mip-mapping.

HIGHLY-OPTIMIZED CPU RENDERING

Render high-quality, high-resolution images and animations with V-Ray’s adaptive ray tracing technology.

INCREDIBLY FAST GPU RENDERING

Fine tune the look of your scenes in real time with the power of GPUs. Build materials, dial in cameras, and adjust lights interactively in the viewport.

ACCURATE LIGHTS

Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image- based lighting. With area lights, sun & sky and IES lights, you can render artistically – and accurately.

GLOBAL ILLUMINATION

Choose from several global illumination options – exact, approximate or a hybrid of both.

MEMORY-EFFICIENT TEXTURES

Work with production-ready, multiresolution tiled textures from your favorite applications, like MARI, Mudbox and Zbrush.

DYNAMIC GEOMETRY

Render massive scenes with proxy objects. V-Ray proxies efficiently replace complex scene geometry and load only at render time.

Here you can create the content that will be used within the module.

V-RAY FRAME BUFFER

Review, analyze and post process your renders directly in V-Ray’s advanced frame buffer. You can be sure your images will match your final output.

VRSCANS MATERIAL LIBRARY SUPPORT

400+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray.

PHYSICALLY-BASED MATERIALS

Create any type of physical material. From multilayered car paint to accurate subsurface scattering, you can make any material imaginable.

PHOTOREAL CAMERAS

Work like a photographer. Real-world camera controls let you capture images with detailed depth of field and cinematic motion blur.

VOLUMES

Render fog, smoke and atmospheric effects that respond correctly to light. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and PhoenixFD.

HAIR & FUR

Render realistic hair efficiently and flicker-free. V-Ray includes procedural fur, optimized hair shaders, and supports 3ds Max Hair&Fur, HairFarm and Ornatrix.

VARIANCE-BASED ADAPTIVE SAMPLING

Get cleaner renders with better noise detection.

RENDER ELEMENTS

37 unique beauty, utility and matte passes give you more control over your rendered images for compositing.

V-RAY DENOISER

Automatically remove noise and cut render times by up to 50%.

AUTOMATIC SAMPLING

Save time with automatic sampling of lights and materials.

NEW SKY MODEL & AERIAL PERSPECTIVE

Simulate natural looking skies with realistic atmospheric depth.

VR & SPECIALTY CAMERAS

Experience your project in virtual reality. Create content for popular VR headsets, like Samsung Gear VR, with 6×1 and spherical stereo camera types.

TRIPLANAR MAPPIING

Quickly apply seamless textures without UVs.

ROUNDED CORNERS

Generate perfectly smooth edges at render-time with no extra modeling.

SPECIALTY GEOMETRY

Create unique geometry like infinite planes, metaballs and isosurfaces, particles and object cutaways with render-time booleans.

CLIPPER W/ RENDER-TIME BOOLEANS

Create complex cutaways and sections using any mesh object.
