Try freeBuy now

Rendering

© CS Designstudio
GPU + CPU rendering

Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray, you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.

GPU production rendering

Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU—and go even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.

Fast interactive rendering

Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.

Light Mixing

Create dozens of lighting scenarios from a single render. Interactively edit the color and intensity of lights, and see the results without rendering again.

Multiple additive Dome Lights

You can now render multiple Dome Lights at the same time. Direct support in Light Mix makes it easier than ever to mix light sources and relight your scene even after you’ve rendered.

Pixel-perfect masks in the V-Ray Frame Buffer

Fine-tune parts of your render using any of V-Ray's masking render elements—Cryptomatte, MultiMatte, and Object/Render/Material IDs. No need to re-render or go to another app.

Distributed rendering

Easily harness the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.

AI Denoising

The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence that instantly reduces noise while you render.

Progressive caustics

Add realism to your renders with V-Ray’s new progressively calculated caustics, helping you achieve real-world reflections and refractions faster. And it’s easier to set up, without the need for pre-calculated photon maps.

Lighting

New Sun and Sky Model

Capture the light of magic hour. The new Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.

Camera effects

Photorealistic Cameras

Real-world camera controls let you work like a photographer. Render images with detailed depth of field and cinematic motion blur.

Point & Shoot Camera

Perfect renders are as easy as taking a snapshot with the Automatic Exposure and White Balance settings.

Materials

Node-based material editing

With support for Cinema 4D’s latest node-based material editing system, you can now easily view and manage your entire V-Ray shading network—all the way from creating materials and textures to adding the finishing touches.

Coat layer

Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It's faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.

Sheen layer

Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.

Matalness

Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.

New V-Ray Material Translucency

It’s now easier than ever to render photorealistic skin, plastic, wax, and more. The updated V-Ray Material with built-in volumetric subsurface scattering lets you create translucent materials in just a few clicks.

Car Paint 2 Material

Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.

Physical Hair Material

Achieve more realistic results with the new physically accurate V-Ray Hair Material.

Chaos Scans Material Library support

Get access to a library of over 1,000 unbelievably real materials — a great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations.

Textures

Improved V-Ray Dirt

Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.

Texture randomization

Add variety to your scenes by randomizing colors and textures with V-Ray MultiSub Texture.

Blue-noise sampling

See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you'll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.

Native Support for Cinema 4D Noises

Enhance your renderings with different noise patterns and detailed surfaces. Now with less memory consumption.

Geometry

V-Ray Fur

Render realistic hair and fur faster than ever before using V-Ray’s procedural fur. Simulate realistic grass, fabrics, carpets, hair, and much more.

video-thumb-v-ray5-cinema4d-up1-clipper-690x380.jpg
V-Ray Clipper

Create quick cutaways and section renders with V-Ray Clipper. Convert any scene object to a clipper.

Atmospheric and volumetric effects

Volume rendering

Render realistic fog, smoke and atmospheric effects with V-Ray Volume Grid. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and Phoenix FD.

Render elements

Render Elements

Choose from nearly 50 unique beauty, utility, and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.

Cryptomatte

Auto-create ID mattes with support for transparency, depth of field and motion blur.

Light Path Expressions

For the ultimate control, you can create your own render passes with Light Path Expressions, using the behavior of light, rather than just geometry for more efficient compositing.
