The world's most complete rendering software for animation and visual effects.

For 3D artists who need a fast and flexible renderer, V-Ray is built for speed, and designed for production. No matter the project, V-Ray delivers when it matters most. 



Academy Award-winning rendering technology.

V-Ray is production-proven. For more than a decade V-Ray has been used by the world’s leading studios to render over 300 television series and feature films. In 2017, V-Ray’s ray tracing technology received a Sci-Tech Academy Award for its contribution to photorealistic visual effects.

High-powered rendering at any scale.

Take full advantage of your hardware with production rendering that scales on multiple CPUs, GPUs, or both. You can even render a single image across multiple machines with distributed rendering.


Seamless integration with your pipeline.

V-Ray works seamlessly with Maya and your studio pipeline. ACEScg support is new in V-Ray 5, joining other industry standards like Alembic, OpenVDB, and OpenColorIO. Your favorite Maya plugins are also compatible, including Golaem, Massive, Ornatrix, Phoenix FD, and Yeti.

Easy to deploy and customize.

V-Ray is easy to deploy on any Windows, macOS, or Linux network. V-Ray licenses are floating and can be centrally served and locally checked out. And V-Ray Standalone allows for headless rendering across your render farm.

V-Ray for Maya also includes two software development kits to customize your rendering workflow. For example, you can write custom shaders with the V-Ray SDK (C++) or build custom pipeline tools with the V-Ray App SDK (Python).
