V-Ray Enmesh

Tile 3D geometry patterns across objects to create complex surfaces with lots of detail for stunning close-up shots. Enmesh is ideal for creating intricate panels, fences, fabrics, and so much more, and it uses much less memory than displacement or copying by hand.

Groups hierarchy

Effortlessly distribute multiple objects in groups or within a hierarchy. With Chaos Scatter, complex distributions are simplified to just a few clicks, streamlining your workflow and enhancing overall efficiency.

Altitude

Create even more realistic scatters by controlling the distribution of objects based on surface height. Achieve natural altitude variance in vegetation, or experiment with the value for your desired look.

Look at

Boost realism by adjusting the orientation of scattered items—rotate away or toward a selected object. Choose an axis or tweak the Falloff curve for even more creative freedom.

The VFB keeps getting better.

Do even more in post and have finer control over your final images.
