V-Ray 6 for 3ds Max, beta launches

Take a sneak peek at the incredible new version of V-Ray, including new tools that cut through complex designs, and our fastest-ever shaders and materials.


We’re getting close to releasing V-Ray 6 for 3ds Max and we’d like to invite V-Ray users to join our beta program, explore all that’s new, and help us make it even better. 

Join the beta to test-drive all the new tools, allowing you to build anything imaginable — faster than ever before. Create complex environments, or intricate geometric patterns for your designs quickly and easily. 

Shade faster and create even more physically accurate materials. 

And, when you’re ready, fast-forward your collaboration, reviews and approvals in Chaos Cloud.

Plus much more. 

Want to know what to expect from your beta experience?

Check out the V-Ray 6 for 3ds Max beta features:
  • Chaos Scatter

Create forests, fields, crowds, and more using our new scatter tool. It's fast, easy, and it lets you add lots of detail to your scene without using lots of memory. Download one of our free scatter presets from Chaos Cosmos to get started.

  • V-Ray Enmesh 

With Enmesh, you can think of geometry like a texture — but rather than repeating an image over a surface, it uses tileable geometry. Enmesh is ideal for creating patterns such as fences and fabrics, and it uses much less memory than displacement or copying by hand.

  • V-Ray Decal with Displacement

You can now use V-Ray Decal to add displacement to any surface for even more realistic cracked walls, rocks, embossed lettering, and more. 

  • V-Ray Proxy Object Hierarchy

Easily turn on or off an individual object’s visibility or material override with the new V-Ray Proxy hierarchical view. Set custom order by name, and streamline your geometry exchange and custom library workflows.

  • Chaos Cloud Collaboration

Get rapid, consolidated feedback on your work’s progress. Upload your renders to Chaos Cloud Collaboration right from V-Ray’s Frame Buffer, and share your work with colleagues and clients to add comments and annotations. 

  • Procedural clouds 

Craft just the right cloudy sky for your environment in just a few clicks with V-Ray’s new procedural clouds system. 

  • New ground projection

Elevate your HDRI environment renders with the new, more flexible ground projection capabilities of the V-Ray Dome Light. 

  • Faster UI draw times

Get a smoother experience when working with shading networks. V-Ray’s materials and textures interface now comes with much faster load times.

  • Enhanced V-Ray Material energy preservation

Render even more physically accurate rough metals and other reflective surfaces with enhanced V-Ray Material energy preservation. 

  • Thin Film layer 

Create realistic soap bubbles, oil spills, and more with the new Thin Film option in the V-Ray Material.

  • V-Ray Material Faster SSS

Render translucent materials even faster with a brand-new V-Ray Material SSS mode.  

And more.
