V-Ray 3.3 for Maya is here, and it’s fast

V-Ray 3.3 for Maya

V-Ray 3.3 for Maya is a free update for V-Ray 3.X for Maya artists, and it’s available now. Most scenes render 20-50% faster, and this release introduces final frame rendering on the GPU with the updated V-Ray RT. Like V-Ray for 3ds Max, 3.3 for Maya has the new Variance-based Adaptive Sampling. This means faster set-up and less adjustments since lights and materials are evaluated automatically. And these are just a few of the many new features.

If you have V-Ray 3 or 3.1 for Maya, just login at chaosgroup.com and go to the download page to get this free update.

V-Ray 3.3 for 3ds Max now available

V-Ray 3.3 for 3ds Max

We’ve released another big update to V-Ray for 3ds Max that will render most scenes up to 20-50% faster. V-Ray 3.3 for 3ds Max also introduces new variance-based adaptive sampler – a new algorithm that makes renders quicker to setup and removes the need to set subdivisions for lights and materials. This makes it much easier for users to get high-quality, predictable renders.

More New Features

• Ray Traced Rounded Corners – for perfectly smooth edges at render time
• New Sky Model and Aerial Perspective – for realistic natural-looking environments
• Triplanar Mapping – for simple, UV-less textures
• Improved V-Ray Clipper with Render-time Booleans – for cutaways using any arbitrary mesh 
• Stochastic Flakes – for more realistic materials like snow, sand, and car paints

Many features have been updated as well, including better global illumination and GPU rendering with V-Ray RT. This update is free for all V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max customers. Login at chaosgroup.com to download.
