V-Ray 6, update 1 lets you perfect your renders even under the tightest deadlines with even more post-processing capabilities inside the VFB. Take your product designs and surface effects to the next level with the powered up V-Ray Decal.
V-Ray GPU also got even more powerful and memory efficient. Plus, we’ve introduced workflow enhancements that will help you get the job done faster as well as new collaboration features to ease communication and speed up the decision-making process. And much more.
Make it perfect
It’s no longer a matter of time versus quality. With even more control in post, you can fine-tune your renders in no time.
We’ve boosted post-production control with masking support for Lens Effects and Denoiser layers. Choose specific lights and materials to apply lens effects to, or denoise just the parts of your image that you’d like to smooth out.
Fine-tune V-Ray Light Materials using LightMix. With more control than ever before, you can now edit self-illuminating objects in your scene — even after you’ve rendered.
Take your designs to the next level
We’ve powered up V-Ray Decal to help you take your product visualizations and surface effects to a whole new level.
Decal cylindrical projection
Easily add anything from stickers and labels to different kinds of surface imperfections to bottles, jars, cups, cans, rockets, tanks, fire hydrants, or any other cylinder-like object. Match the Decal’s projection to the curve of the object’s surface in just a few clicks.
Decal additive bump
Blend surface and decal bumps in no time. Take your product designs to new levels of realism with lifelike stickers, labels, embossed logos, lettering, and more. Or easily create effects such as spray or paint on a cracked wall, corroded metal, or any other bumpy surface.
Export V-Ray lights, materials, modifiers, and more to USD file format. Exchange V-Ray data between all compatible DCCs.
Improved exported scene from Chaos Cloud
Exported V-Ray scenes submitted to Chaos Cloud for rendering make use of a new format which reduces file size and increases upload speed. Differences between Chaos Cloud render output and local rendering, due to bugs or missing features, have also been significantly reduced.
Rendering texture-heavy scenes is now much more memory-efficient. On average, V-Ray GPU uses 50% less GPU memory on assets with 4K textures. Add incredible detail to your scenes without sacrificing shading quality.
Render complex cutaways and sections using any mesh object. In just a few clicks, you can also animate the clipper and achieve complex effects that would otherwise take a lot of time to create with Boolean operators.
Easily create photorealistic skin, plastic, wax, and more, using the updated V-Ray Material. Thanks to a new algorithm, translucent objects now render up to 2x faster. Low-poly translucent objects also render more smoothly.
Set your imagination free with more control over your scene’s lighting. Easily create artistic effects with V-Ray Light’s Custom Decay, which allows you to dictate how light transmits based on the source distance.
NVIDIA AI Denoiser upscaling
Experiment with NVIDIA’s new AI Denoiser that promises to greatly speed-up rendering times by allowing you to render at one quarter your resolution.
Enhanced procedural clouds
New options for procedural clouds give you more creative control over the final look. Customize how dark your clouds are, randomize them in countless combinations, and add the final touch with contrails.
