KEY FEATURES

Rendering

CPU, GPU AND HYBRID RENDERING

V-Ray comes with two powerful rendering engines. You can choose between super-fast GPU and CPU or Hybrid rendering to best suit your project needs and requirements.

DENOISER

Remove noise and dramatically cut the render times. With V-Ray Denoiser, you can denoise each render element in post-production. And with the NVIDIA AI Denoiser, V-Ray delivers instant feedback with less noise, while you design interactively.

INTERACTIVE RENDERING

Render while you design. See results right away as you adjust lights, materials and cameras. You could also look at the denoised image while rendering in the Rhino viewport.

RENDER ELEMENTS

Render separate layers for more artistic control in image-editing software.

V-RAY SWARM

Render with maximum power using V-Ray’s new simple and scalable distributed rendering.

ANIMATIONS

V-Ray for Rhino enables light studies, turntables and fly-through animations rendering and an optimal way.

V-RAY FOR GRASSHOPPER

V-Ray for Grasshopper is now quicker and simpler with new preset lighting and material setups. Grasshopper objects can be rendered directly as part of the Rhino scene without baking geometry.

CHAOS CLOUD

Rendering on the Cloud is just one click away.

AUTOMATING SNAPSHOTS & BATCH RENDERS

V-Ray Batch makes it easy to render snapshots from the same project or views from multiple Rhino files all at once.

SCENE INTELLIGENCE

Automatically analyzes your scene to optimize rendering so you get the best quality in less time.

VIEWPORT RENDERING

An overlay on top of SketchUp’s viewport. It is rendered interactively and if scene changes are made, updates the rendered result.

CRYPTOMATTE RENDER ELEMENT

The Cryptomatte render element automatically generates and stores object- or material-based masks. It’s perfect when you need to create multiple Multimattes or accurately select objects in post-production.


UI

SMART ASSET EDITOR

Create, edit and manage all of your assets including lights, materials, textures, geometry and render elements all in one place. All assets are structured in an intuitive folder structure.

FILE MANAGER

Manage all of your scene files in one place. Set file paths, create scene archives, and keep track of assets like textures, IES files, and proxy objects.

COLOR PICKER

A powerful color picker, which provides RGB color values and a corresponding Kelvin temperature slider, allows you to save and modify temperature values for every color slot.

FRAME BUFFER

Track your render history and fine-tune colors, exposure, and more directly in the V-Ray Frame Buffer.

ACCURATE VIEWPORT PREVIEWS

Get an accurate preview of your materials in the Rhino viewport with improved reflections, refractions, bump maps and more.

POWER UP WITH SCRIPTS

Use RhinoScript and Python to program V-Ray Next to do even more for you, like automating scene management or accessing parameters not shown in the UI.

UNIVERSAL ASSET PREVIEW

Preview your materials, lights, textures and render elements in a single viewer. Observe how parameter changes affect the appearance of the asset in a specific isolated setting.

MULTI-SELECTION

Select multiple scene or library assets as well as multiple toolbar filters to speed up your workflow.

TEXTURE INSTANCING

Map multiple material parameters with the same source texture to simplify the shader structure and management.


Lighting

ADAPTIVE LIGHTS

In scenes with many lights, Adaptive Lights mode can help you speed up render times by up to 700%.

LIGHT INSTANCES

Lights can be instanced and controlled as a single light in the Asset Editor.

GLOBAL ILLUMINATION

Render realistic rooms and interiors with V-Ray’s powerful and fast global illumination.

ACCURATE LIGHTS

Render natural and artificial lighting with a wide range of built-in light types.

IMAGE BASED LIGHTING

Light your scenes with a single high-dynamic-range image (HDRI).

SUN & SKY

Render realistic daylight for any time and any location.

ADAPTIVE DOME LIGHT

Render faster, cleaner and more accurate image-based lighting that’s up to 7x faster. The new Adaptive Dome Light also removes the need to set up Portal lights for interiors.

LIGHTING ANALYSIS TOOL

The new Lighting Analysis render element makes it easy to visualize the real-world illumination (Lux) values of any scene.


Camera

REAL-WORLD CAMERA

Work like a photographer with controls for exposure, white balance and depth of field.

VIRTUAL REALITY

Render VR content for popular virtual reality headsets.

INTERACTIVE LENS EFFECT

Instantly add GPU-accelerated glare, bloom and procedurally generated dust and scratches for added photorealism. Fine-tune lens effects interactively while you render.

AUTOMATIC EXPOSURE & WHITE BALANCE

Capture the perfect exposure every time. The new Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance camera controls make rendering as simple as point and shoot.


Materials & textures

PHYSICAL MATERIALS

Create great looking materials that look exactly like the real thing.

PROCEDURAL TEXTURES

Texture NURBS models with ease with a rich set of procedurals that don’t requre UV unwrapping.

NATIVE MATERIALS SUPPORT

Render an enhanced version of your Rhino materials without converting them to V-Ray shaders.

MATERIAL LIBRARY

Select from over 1000 drag and drop materials to speed up your next project.

MATERIAL METALNESS

The V-Ray Material adds native support for metallic reflections (Metalness) for greater compatibility with PBR materials from applications like Substance Designer.


Atmospheric & volumetric effects

FOG

Give your scenes depth with new realistic 3D fog and light scattering effects.

AERIAL PERSPECTIVE

Add depth to your images with realistic atmospheric effects.

VOLUMETRIC MATERIALS

Realistic material light scattering and translucency.


Geometry management

PROXY OBJECTS

Add highly detailed and complex objects like grass, trees, and cars with memory-efficient proxy models. Easily add pre-animated 3D objects with animated V-Ray proxies.

PROXY PREVIEWS

Control the look of V-Ray proxies in the Rhino viewport. Select from Whole mesh, Bounding box, Point (Origin), Custom preview, and a new low poly Proxy preview mode.

DISPLACEMENT

Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling. It’s perfect for architectural materials like brick and stone.

GRASS & FUR

Create realistic grass, fabrics and carpet with V-Ray Fur.

SECTION CUTS

Render quick cutaways and cross sections with V-Ray Clipper.

V-RAY SCENE IMPORT & EXPORT

Import and render V-Ray scenes from other applications such as 3ds Max, Revit, and SketchUp or share complete ready to render V-Ray for Rhino files.
