TURN YOUR COMPUTER INTO A SUPERCOMPUTER

Simple, fast cloud rendering. Seamlessly integrated with V-Ray for Rhino.

KEY FEATURES

Rendering
CPU, GPU and Hybrid rendering

V-Ray comes with two powerful rendering engines. You can choose between super-fast GPU and CPU or Hybrid rendering to best suit your project needs and requirements.

DENOISER

Remove noise and dramatically cut the render times. With V-Ray Denoiser, you can denoise each render element in post-production. And with the NVIDIA AI Denoiser, V-Ray delivers instant feedback with less noise, while you design interactively.

INTERACTIVE RENDERING

Render while you design. See results right away as you adjust lights, materials and cameras. You could also look at the denoised image while rendering in the Rhino viewport.

RENDER ELEMENTS

Render separate layers for more artistic control in image-editing software.

V-Ray Swarm
V-RAY SWARM

Render with maximum power using V-Ray’s new simple and scalable distributed rendering.

ANIMATIONS

V-Ray for Rhino enables light studies, turntables and fly-through animations rendering and an optimal way.

V-RAY FOR GRASSHOPPER

V-Ray for Grasshopper is now quicker and simpler with new preset lighting and material setups. Grasshopper objects can be rendered directly as part of the Rhino scene without baking geometry.

AUTOMATING SNAPSHOTS & BATCH RENDERS

V-Ray Batch makes it easy to render snapshots from the same project or views from multiple Rhino files all at once.

SCENE INTELLIGENCE

Automatically analyzes your scene to optimize rendering so you get the best quality in less time.

VIEWPORT RENDERING

An overlay on top of Rhino's viewport. It is rendered interactively and if scene changes are made, updates the rendered result.


Lighting
ADAPTIVE LIGHTS

In scenes with many lights, Adaptive Lights mode can help you speed up render times by up to 700%.

LIGHT INSTANCES

Lights can be instanced and controlled as a single light in the Asset Editor.

GLOBAL ILLUMINATION

Render realistic rooms and interiors with V-Ray’s powerful and fast global illumination.

V-Ray for Rhino Accurate Lights© Federico Fernandez
ACCURATE LIGHTS

Render natural and artificial lighting with a wide range of built-in light types.

V-Ray for Rhino Environment Lighting
IMAGE BASED LIGHTING

Light your scenes with a single high-dynamic-range image (HDRI).

V-Ray for Rhino Sun & Sky
SUN & SKY

Render realistic daylight for any time and any location.

ADAPTIVE DOME LIGHT

Render faster, cleaner and more accurate image-based lighting that’s up to 7x faster. The new Adaptive Dome Light also removes the need to set up Portal lights for interiors.

LIGHTING ANALYSIS TOOL

The new Lighting Analysis render element makes it easy to visualize the real-world illumination (Lux) values of any scene.


UI
SMART ASSET EDITOR

Create, edit and manage all of your assets including lights, materials, textures, geometry and render elements all in one place. All assets are structured in an intuitive folder structure.

FILE MANAGER

Manage all of your scene files in one place. Set file paths, create scene archives, and keep track of assets like textures, IES files, and proxy objects.

V-RAY COLOR PICKER

New color picker allows you to select color values in Screen sRGB (0–255) or Rendering (0.0–1.0) color space.

V-Ray for Rhino Frame Buffer
FRAME BUFFER

Track your render history and fine-tune colors, exposure, and more directly in the V-Ray Frame Buffer.
