V-Ray 2.0 for Maya Key Features
V-RAY RT on CPU and GPU
Support for efficient material layering - quickly render complex materials using the V-Ray Blend material
Fast Sub-surface scattering shader - V-Ray FastSSS2 material uses a pre-pass to create fast and accurate subsurface scattering effects with support for both single and multiple scattering
VRayHairMtl - a new shader allowing users to render hair and fur with unprecedented quality, control, and speed.
Support for the Substance textures in Maya 2011.5 and Maya 2012 - use the new V-Ray 2.0 with the Substance textures in Maya 2011.5 and Maya 2012 to create a wide range of procedural shaders for your projects
VRayToon shader - add an amazing cartoon-like feeling to your renderings
Support for dispersion in refractions for VRayMtl - this option uses the new capabilities for wavelength-dependent raytracing of the V-Ray core and allows you to create stunning close- ups of refractive objects with caustics that dazzle the eye.
Automatic support for both Mari and Mudbox style tiled textures - V-Ray 2.0 can automatically load the correct texture bitmaps depending on the UV tiles of the rendered object
Support for rendering of Maya fluids - the new V-Ray 2.0 recognizes and renders Maya fluids directly, with full support for GI and light scattering inside the volume
Efficient illumination from HDR environments - create accurate IBL solutions with sharp shadows at a fraction of the usual render time
Lens distortion through Nuke displacement maps - the VRay Physical Camera can use displacement maps from Nuke to completely match the distortion of your real camera
Support for the Maya stereo camera in batch render mode - render your stereoscopic animations with V-Ray 2.0 and Maya batch render mode
Option to turn off camera motion blur - V-Ray 2.0 gives you a separate control to enable or disable the motion blur coming from the movement of the camera
Shutter efficiency for motion blur - render more realistic motion blur with manual control over the camera shutter efficiency
Support for additional render elements - have full control in compositing by separating the render into render elements
Output of multi-channel scanline OpenEXR files with data-window - removes the need to manually convert the multichannel OpenEXR files produced by V-Ray to scanline-based OpenEXR files for efficient processing by compositing applications
Ultimate resolution of any issues caused by Distributed Rendering - the new VRayDRBucket render element enables you to identify which render slave rendered each bucket
Depth of field with bokeh effects - create fast and accurate physically based depth of field effects using the V-Ray Physical camera
Accurate motion blur - efficient and accurate physically based true 3D motion blur effects using the V-Ray Physical camera
Python callback for access to and modification of the translated V-Ray scene before rendering - this powerful feature allows you to directly modify the V-Ray scene before rendering to fit V-Ray seamlessly into your production pipeline
Support for .vrscene output for rendering with V-Ray Standalone
Interactive Rendering on CPU & GPU - V-Ray RT is a fully functional interactive rendering engine matching the production renderer results. With GPU acceleration, you can rely on a significantly faster interactive rendering process.
V-Ray RT GPU Enhancements - incorporate VRayProxy objects, texture-mapped area and mesh lights, Simple Skylight portals, and the VRayBlendMtl into an ultra-fast V-RayRT GPU workflow.
Dynamic loading of tiled OpenEXR - load tiled OpenEXRs on the fly with the help of the new and improved VRayHDRI texture
On-demand geometry loading from the disk - use V-Ray Proxy to render millions of polygons at maximum memory efficiency by storing the geometry on the hard drive
Displacement mapping - precisely control the displacement on a per object basis with the V-Ray Displacement Extra Attributes
Faster rendering of dynamic geometry - new internal optimizations have led to even faster multi-core rendering of dynamic geometry like displacement, proxies, fur and hair, etc.
Faster rendering of subdivision surfaces, VRayFur and Maya hair - the new improved core of V-Ray 2.0 can render VRayFur, Maya hair and render-time subdivision surfaces much faster
The ply2vrmesh tool can convert RealFlow .bin files to .vrmesh files - with the new version of the ply2mesh tool V-Ray 2.0 users can render very large RealFlow simulations as VRayProxy objects with significantly improved memory efficiency
Extended irradiance map viewer tool - allows the incremental merge of irradiance map files to avoid redundant information; preview of light cache files; manual deletion of unwanted samples, and usage of OpenGL display lists for more interactivity
Img2tiledexr tool for mass conversion of many common image formats to tiled OpenEXR files
