MaterialX support in V-Ray for Solaris

Houdini 20.0 compatibility

V-Ray now supports the latest Houdini version, so you can benefit from the many important features that it introduces. Render Hydra Ocean and Feather procedurals, or add light textures or shading networks through Light Filters to achieve the desired effect.

Enhanced V-Ray Hydra Delegate

Now you can do even more in V-Ray for Solaris thanks to an enhanced V-Ray Hydra Delegate. We’ve added support for V-Ray Environment Fog and V-Ray Toon. Light Path Expressions have also been powered up with chaining and multiple light tags. Plus, we now support V-Ray post-translate scripts for more advanced pipelines.

More creative control, faster iterations.

This update streamlines grooming and shading, providing more artistic control and faster iterations.
Enhanced V-Ray Fur

Apply V-Ray Fur to Alembic files, utilizing procedurally generated fur for detailed grooms. Leverage asset caching to speed up interactive rendering, getting your iterations as close to real-time as possible. V-Ray Fur now supports displacement and motion blur, simplifying the creation of realistic peach fuzz.

Material Overrides for Volumes

V-Ray now enables material overrides for volumetric effects, allowing you to swiftly and universally replace or modify materials within your scene. With this feature, you can make consistent changes across the entire scene, test and iterate more efficiently, and more.
