Our integrated asset library, Chaos Cosmos, enables you to browse and add render-ready models, high-resolution materials, and beautiful HDRI skies to your scene with just a few clicks directly from the V-Ray toolbar.
Add realism to your renders with V-Ray’s new progressively calculated caustics, helping you achieve real-world reflections and refractions faster. And it’s easier to set up, without the need for pre-calculated photon maps.
V-Ray Render Masks
Make changes to any object or group of objects in your scene even after you’ve rendered. No need to re-render the whole image.
Capture the light of magic hour. The new Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.
Work with multiple lights more efficiently, and improve performance with new V-Ray Light instancing.
Create the perfect sky for your environment in just a few clicks with V-Ray Sun and Sky’s new procedural clouds system. Easily simulate a variety of cloud types and weather conditions, from partly cloudy to overcast. Render realistic stills, or dynamic timelapses.
Finite Dome light mode
Elevate your product design and HDRI renders with the new, more flexible ground projection capabilities of the V-Ray Dome Light. Control the size of a dome light and blend settings with the new finite mode.
Perfect renders are as easy as taking a snapshot with the Automatic Exposure and White Balance settings.
Node-based material editing
With support for Cinema 4D’s latest node-based material editing system, you can now easily view and manage your entire V-Ray shading network—all the way from creating materials and textures to adding the finishing touches.
Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It's faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.
Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.
Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.
It’s now easier than ever to render photorealistic skin, plastic, wax, and more. The updated V-Ray Material with built-in volumetric subsurface scattering lets you create translucent materials in just a few clicks.
Car Paint 2 Material
Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.
Physical Hair Material
Achieve more realistic results with the new physically accurate V-Ray Hair Material.
Chaos Scans Material Library support
Get access to a library of over 1,000 unbelievably real materials — a great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations.
See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you'll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.
Native Support for Cinema 4D Noises
Enhance your renderings with different noise patterns and detailed surfaces. Now with less memory consumption.
Add anything from stickers and labels to cracks, stains, and scratches in just a few clicks. Project V-Ray Decals onto surfaces at any angle without extra UVW work or disturbing the underlying materials. Turn on displacement for even more realism.
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.
