With V-Ray® Vision, you can visualize your designs in real-time while you work in SketchUp. Move around your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras—all in a live real-time view of your scene.
CPU, GPU & 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.
Smart 3D assets
Our integrated asset library, Chaos Cosmos, enables you to search and add render-ready objects and HDRI skies to your scene directly from the V-Ray toolbar. The Cosmos assets have automatic LODs, accurate scale, and can be used across 3ds Max, Rhino, and Revit.
Remove noise and dramatically cut the render times. Use the V-Ray Denoiser to denoise each render element in post-production. The NVIDIA AI Denoiser and Intel Open Image Denoise deliver instant noise-free feedback in V-Ray IPR.
Render interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights and materials and see the results right away. View the render result directly in the SketchUp viewport.
Instantly add GPU-accelerated glare, bloom and procedurally generated dust and scratches for added photorealism. Fine-tune lens effects interactively while you render.
Automatic exposure & white balance
Capture the perfect exposure every time. The new Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance camera controls make rendering as simple as point and shoot.
Create great looking materials or select from 500+ readily available ones in the asset library. From multilayered car paint to accurate subsurface scattering, you can create any imaginable material.
Create realistic and unique shaders using any texture map or one of V-Ray’s many built-in procedural textures - Gradient, Temperature, Tri-Planar, etc.
The V-Ray Material provides support for PBR shaders with the Metalness reflection controls.
To create more realistic materials, we’ve added new tools that randomize textures and colors. The VRayUVWRandomizer lets you randomize texture coordinates and includes Stochastic Tiling that automatically fixes repeating textures.
1000+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray.
Atmospheric & volumetric effects
Quickly add realistic atmospheric depth and haze and use true 3D fog with realistic light scattering.
Simulate natural looking skies with realistic atmospheric depth.
Realistic material light scattering and translucency.
Bring more detail to your project with memory-efficient proxy models of complex objects like grass, trees, cars. Import and render V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) as references from other applications such as 3ds Max, Rhino, and Revit.
V-Ray Scene Importer
Import any .vrscene file directly as a SketchUp model with correctly sized and positioned objects, proper texture placement, lights and proxy references.
Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling with the optimized V-Ray displacement. The 2d Displacement mode is perfect for architectural materials like brick and stone.
Create realistic grass, fabrics, and carpet with V-Ray Fur.
Section cuts & Clipper
Easily create quick cutaways and section renders with V-Ray Clipper. Convert any scene object to a clipper.
Choose from many unique beauty, utility and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.
Cryptomatte Render Element
Аutomatically generates and stores object- or material-based masks. It’s perfect when you need to accurately select objects in post-production.
