The world's most complete 3D rendering software for high-end visualization and production.
V-Ray® for 3ds Max is a production-proven rendering software. Known for its versatility and ability to handle any type of project — from massive, dynamic scenes having thousands of lights to a sublime still life — it is the go-to solution for artists and designers across 3D industries.
Award-winning rendering technology for any project.
For truly photorealistic renders, you want a raytracer that’s built for quality, optimized for speed, and ready to scale. V-Ray gives you the power to work with lightning-fast interactive and heavyweight production rendering—all while getting the most from your CPU and GPU hardware.
When you’re working with the biggest scene you’ve ever seen, you need a renderer that won’t let you down. Billions of polygons? Thousands of lights? V-Ray can handle it all. Render anything and everything with V-Ray. Adaptive Lights, Proxy Objects, Distributed Rendering — an arsenal of production-proven features when you need them.
Post-process your renders without the need of a separate tool.
V-Ray equips you with a complete set of lighting, shading, and rendering tools—all integrated with 3ds Max. The redesigned V-Ray Frame buffer with light mixing and layered compositing means you only need to use one tool for more than just rendering — no need to go back and forth between different apps.
V-Ray is compatible with all the most popular 3ds Max plugins — Substance, Forest Pack, Railclone, Ornatrix, Tyflow, Phoenix, and more. V-Ray is also the perfect fit for any pipeline with support for open standards such as Alembic, OSL, OpenColorIO, and now ACEScg.
V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max, update 1 brings even more workflow optimizations to help you save time and get photo-realistic results fast. From a single render, simulate many light environments and instantly tweak specific parts of your scene. Achieve real-world reflections and refractions in less time.
