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.
Chaos Vantage Live Link
Explore even your most complex scenes ray traced in real-time with zero setup with a live link to Chaos Vantage.
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.
New Sun and Sky Model
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.
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.
New V-Ray Material Translucency
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
