Academy-Award Winning Ray Tracing Technology Now Available to Third-Party Developers

SOFIA, Bulgaria – May 30, 2017 – Today, Chaos Group releases V-Ray Application SDK, a complete software development kit with high-level API that allows developers to integrate the full power of V-Ray’s photorealistic rendering technology into any application. The V-Ray AppSDK is specifically designed to be a fast and flexible solution for companies looking to add ray traced rendering capabilities to their software.

“We designed and built the V-Ray Application SDK to help companies get the full benefits of photorealistic ray tracing without having to write, or maintain, their own rendering engine,” said Iavor Trifonov, Chaos Group VP of Cloud and Integrations. “Now, companies can rely on V-Ray’s expert development and continuous improvements, while focusing their efforts on their own applications.”

From architecture and design to advertising and visual effects, V-Ray is the most widely used rendering solution in the world. This versatility makes the V-Ray AppSDK suitable for a wide range of design and visualization applications, such as:

  • 3D, CAD and DCC applications
  • AEC, BIM and architectural design
  • Home, kitchen and bath design
  • Interior design
  • Automotive design and car configurators
  • Aerospace & nautical design
  • Product design and virtual prototyping
  • Jewelry design
  • Retail, apparel and virtual showrooms
  • Scientific, medical and forensic visualization
  • Visual effects and pipeline customization
  • Virtual reality and augmented reality

The V-Ray AppSDK simplifies and accelerates the integration process, and offers full programmatic control over V-Ray’s extensive feature set. With support for a wide range of popular API bindings, such as Python, C#.NET, Javascript (Node.js) and C++, software developers are able to program in their preferred language. In addition, the software development kit also includes documentation, learning resources, code samples, test scenes, and ready-to-use functionality presets.
