Hair improvements

Render blond, gray, white, and other bright hair colors more accurately with the updated V-Ray Next Hair Material.

Boosted performance in just a few steps.

Enhanced ACEScg support

A simpler OCIO setup is now available in the updated UI. We’ve also added the “Auto” option for the color space transfer function, reducing the effort required when building shading networks.

VDB to AUR converter

Chaos Phoenix’s Aura files are rendered faster with V-Ray. A new node makes it easy to perform a quick conversion from VDB to Aura right in the Houdini GUI.

Alembic workflow updates

The newly added PatternID texture simplifies material assignment when working with Alembic files. Plus, we’ve sped up the export of scenes containing large numbers of Alembic files, and the rendering of Alembic files with NUMA machines.

MakeTX utility

Use the MakeTX tool to easily convert textures to “.tx” files, loaded one tile at a time at render-time. This means quicker loading of textures, less memory consumption, and faster rendering.

Multiple cameras export

You no longer need to export separate .vrscene files for every camera angle. It is now possible to store multiple cameras in a single .vrscene file, so you can save time on your heaviest scenes.

V-Ray Scene Material import and unpacking updates

Unpacking .vrscenes is much faster. We’ve updated the amount of supported shading nodes for material import through .vrscenes coming from other DCCs like Autodesk Maya, and 3ds Max.
