The V-Ray 5 for Houdini beta is now live. This is your chance to try out its incredible new features and help us perfect an already awesome renderer.

New features in V-Ray 5 for Houdini, beta include:

  • Redesigned V-Ray Frame Buffer
    We’ve expanded the capabilities of the VFB. With the VFB’s new Layer Compositor you can fine-tune your images — and go beyond rendering.
  • Streamlined UI
    The latest updates to V-Ray 5’s UI significantly improve your rendering workflow. Focus on your designs and achieve faster results with fewer tweaks and less clicks using V-Ray’s automatic settings. 
  • V-Ray Material Library
    Efficiently browse from a library of over 500 render-ready materials including metals, glass, wood and more.
  • Light Path Expressions
    For better control in compositing, construct your own render passes with Light Path Expressions. Output specific light contributions with timesaving presets or by writing custom expressions.
  • Simplified acesCG workflow
    Enable ACEScg so V-Ray 5 can automatically convert the colors of textures, light temperatures, etc. to the correct color space, without the need of additional nodes. 
  • And more!
