SketchUp Colorization support

V-Ray now fully supports native material colorization.
Make color corrections on standard SketchUp materials and see the effect right away in the V-Ray Frame Buffer.

Improved user experience

It’s easier and smoother to use your favorite V-Ray tools, including light creation, Infinite Plane and Scene Interaction. The tool cursor looks the same as SketchUp's, and the SketchUp Instructor features detailed descriptions and animated presentations on how to use V-Ray tools.


Optimized performance

Faster renders across the board.

Optimized interactive rendering on the CPU

More responsive CPU interactive rendering when editing scene camera, lighting and materials.

New Light Cache algorithm

The new default hash map Light Cache calculation mode resolves most common artifacts and is optimized and more stable when used in animations.


Streamlined workflows

Maximum creative control, minimum effort.

Cryptomatte element

The Cryptomatte render element automatically generates and stores object- or material-based masks. It’s perfect when you need to accurately select objects in post-production.

Quick denoiser engine switch

A denoiser engine switch is now available in the main renderer rollout. Switch from V-Ray to NVIDIA AI denoising without the Denoiser advanced parameters panel.

Updated VFB lens effects

Simulate real-world camera lens effects with new procedurally generated dust and scratches.

Color picker temperature

The V-Ray color picker introduces a Kelvin temperature slider, which automatically provides a corresponding RGB color allowing you to save and modify a temperature value for every color slot.
