Introducing Chaos Vantage.

Explore your most complex 3D production scenes ray traced in real-time. With Chaos® Vantage, there are no time-consuming conversions. Simply drag and drop your complete V-Ray scene into Vantage and start exploring. There’s also a direct live link available from 3ds Max, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, and Cinema 4D, so you can use it just like a viewport.

Chaos Vantage requires an NVIDIA RTX series GPU.


Zero setup.

Drag and drop your V-Ray® scene into Chaos Vantage and start exploring. Unlike other real-time solutions, there’s no geometry to optimize, UVs to unwrap, or lighting to bake.
