Chaos V-Ray for Cinema 4D

A whole new rendering experience — and beyond

Professional 3D rendering software for Cinema 4D artists and designers

V-Ray for Cinema 4D puts industry-standard technology for photorealistic 3D rendering into the hands of Cinema 4D artists and designers. With smart tools and powerful rendering capabilities, Chaos V-Ray’s combination of speed and creative control is perfect for any project.

Bring ideas to life

With V-Ray’s complete set of lighting, shading, Emmy and Academy Award-winning rendering tools, you can bring any idea to life.

Built to handle it all

Built to handle your biggest projects, including scenes with massive amounts of geometry and thousands of lights.

Get the job done with ease

Artist-friendly tools and an intuitive interface help you work smarter, making it easy to get the job done.

Render fast

V-Ray’s GPU and CPU rendering capabilities bring a speed boost to any production. With fast interactive rendering, you’ll see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.

Ready to scale

Harness the power of multiple computers to render high-resolution images with V-Ray’s distributed rendering. Or take your rendering to the cloud with direct access to Chaos Cloud.

Go beyond rendering

V-Ray 5 is more than a renderer. Built-in compositing and interactive light mixing let you fine-tune and finish your renders in the V-Ray Frame Buffer without going to a separate app.


V-Ray 5, update 2 is here to help streamline your workflow. Bring your scenes to life in no time with Chaos Cosmos materials, easily randomize textures with V-Ray UVW Randomizer, explore your scenes in real-time with zero setup thanks to the Chaos Vantage Live Link, and instantly adjust the detail of your renders right from the VFB with the new Blur and Sharpen layers. Work more efficiently with multiple lights, and much more to maximize efficiency and performance.

Streamline your workflow

New randomization options

The new V-Ray UVW Randomizer with Stochastic tiling helps you add natural variety to materials for extra realism, and eliminates the problem of texture tiling artifacts.


Materials now available in Cosmos

In addition to high-quality 3D models and HDRI skies, Chaos Cosmos now includes
200 high-resolution V-Ray materials that are ready to render just the way you want.


Live Link with Chaos Vantage

If you’re working with an NVIDIA RTX graphics card, you can use the new Live Link between V-Ray for Cinema 4D and Chaos Vantage to see a real-time ray-traced view of your scene.

Blur and Sharpen in the VFB

Adjust the details of your renders using the new Blur and Sharpen layers right in the V-Ray Frame Buffer. No need for a separate post-processing app!

Maximize efficiency and performance


GPU Light Cache

V-Ray Light Cache now runs on your GPU, so your renders start faster.


Light instancing

Work with multiple lights more efficiently, and improve performance with new V-Ray Light instancing.


Support for Apple M1 processors

MacOS users can now unleash the full power of their M1-powered devices with native support for Apple’s new ARM-based processors.


V-Ray Render Masks

Make changes to any object or group of objects in your scene even after you’ve rendered. No need to re-render the whole image.

V-Ray scene import

Import and render V-Ray scenes from other applications, or share render-ready V-Ray for Cinema 4D content.



GPU + CPU rendering

Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray, you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.


GPU production rendering

Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU—and go even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.


Fast interactive rendering

Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.

Distributed rendering

Easily harness the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.

Light Mixing

Create dozens of lighting scenarios from a single render. Interactively edit the color and intensity of lights, and see the results without rendering again.

Multiple additive Dome Lights

You can now render multiple Dome Lights at the same time. Direct support in Light Mix makes it easier than ever to mix light sources and relight your scene even after you’ve rendered.

Pixel-perfect masks in the V-Ray Frame Buffer

Fine-tune parts of your render using any of V-Ray’s masking render elements—Cryptomatte, MultiMatte, and Object/Render/Material IDs. No need to re-render or go to another app.

AI Denoising

The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence that instantly reduces noise while you render.

Chaos Cloud

Render stills and animations alike in the cloud, at the push of a button—with full support for Chaos Cloud, our cloud rendering service.

Smart V-Ray content

Our integrated asset library, Chaos Cosmos, enables you to browse and add render-ready models, high-resolution materials, and beautiful HDRI skies to your scene with just a few clicks directly from the V-Ray toolbar.

Chaos Vantage Live Link

Explore even your most complex scenes ray traced in real-time with zero setup with a live link to Chaos Vantage.

Progressive caustics

Add realism to your renders with V-Ray’s new progressively calculated caustics, helping you achieve real-world reflections and refractions faster. And it’s easier to set up, without the need for pre-calculated photon maps.



New Sun and Sky Model

Capture the light of magic hour. The new Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.

Camera effects


Photorealistic Cameras

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


Point & Shoot Camera

Perfect renders are as easy as taking a snapshot with the Automatic Exposure and White Balance settings.



Node-based material editing

With support for Cinema 4D’s latest node-based material editing system, you can now easily view and manage your entire V-Ray shading network—all the way from creating materials and textures to adding the finishing touches.


Coat layer

Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It’s faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.


Sheen layer

Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.


Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.

New V-Ray Material Translucency

It’s now easier than ever to render photorealistic skin, plastic, wax, and more. The updated V-Ray Material with built-in volumetric subsurface scattering lets you create translucent materials in just a few clicks.

Car Paint 2 Material

Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.

Physical Hair Material

Achieve more realistic results with the new physically accurate V-Ray Hair Material.

Chaos Scans Material Library support

Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.

Texture randomization

Add variety to your scene by randomizing colors and textures with the VRayUVWRandomizer map and enhanced VRayMultiSubTex controls.

Blue-noise sampling

See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you’ll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.

Native Support for Cinema 4D Noises

Enhance your renderings with different noise patterns and detailed surfaces. Now with less memory consumption.



V-Ray Fur

Render realistic hair and fur faster than ever before using V-Ray’s procedural fur. Simulate realistic grass, fabrics, carpets, hair, and much more.
