V-Ray for Blender
Product OverviewV-Ray for Blender is a project of V-Ray integration to Blender combining V-Ray’s flexibility and unprecedented speed with one of the world's most famous open source 3D applications.
V-Ray for Blender is implemented as an exporter that outputs Blender scenes, models and animations into a .vrscene file format which can be rendered in V-Ray 2.x Standalone.
