Next-level creative connectivity.

Enhance work continuity and collaborate efficiently with effortless transfer of assets between departments or even across studios.
MaterialX support

Complete your USD workflow with MaterialX support, enabling seamless shader exchange. Create and render MaterialX shaders in LookdevX, experiment with procedural textures and adjustment nodes, and preview changes with IPR. Initial support for MaterialX Stack allows LookdevX and Standard surface use outside the USD context.

Extended USD support

V-Ray now supports the latest official version of MayaUSD 0.26.0. The updated USD translator layer ensures full parity with Houdini and introduces enhancements for smoother workflows. Plus, you can now render your USD scenes with our Chaos Cloud rendering service.

Even greater scattering control.

Explore Chaos Scatter's new customization options, giving you greater flexibility than ever before.
Include and exclude lists

Carve a path through a grass field, create a sidewalk in a flower garden, and achieve many more effects with the assistance of Chaos Scatter's new Include and Exclude lists. Effortlessly dictate where objects scatter by utilizing curves or meshes, eliminating the need for custom maps.

Light instancing

Unlock countless creative options with the addition of Lights to the Chaos Scatter instantiable objects list. Easily populate your scene with enchanting fireflies, craft star-filled galaxies, light up concert halls, add light fixtures — and bring your lightbulb moments to life.

Group instancing

Create complex environments faster while keeping even your most complex scenes organized and easy to work with. Group instancing allows you to scatter collections of objects as one, rather than an individual objects list.

Edge Trimming

Easily create clean-cut edges for scattered objects. No more grass on the edge of the curb or pebbles spilling over on the walkway. Objects will now stay within defined boundaries, resulting in a cleaner, more natural look — with a bonus performance boost.

Add an artistic touch to your world.

Every detail counts, whether it’s camera effects, lights and shadows, or surface details. Discover new options for finer creative control.
Shadow Selects

Enjoy finer control over your compositing workflow with Shadow Selects. Choose your lights, then effortlessly adjust the lightness, darkness, or tint of the shadows they cast.

V-Ray Decal Cylindrical Projection

Easily add stickers, labels, and surface imperfections to bottles, jars, cups, cans, rockets, tanks, fire hydrants, or any other cylinder-like object. Match the Decal’s projection to the curve of the object’s surface in just a few clicks.

Light Directionality Strength

Illuminate your scenes with complete artistic control. The new Directionality Strength option provides precise control over the spread of a light's directional intensity, allowing you to add that final touch of magic to your lighting setup.

Chromatic aberration

Want to create a distinctive and creative aesthetic for your scene? Now you can quickly add the chromatic aberration post-effect right from the V-Ray Frame Buffer without firing up a third-party application.

Power up your GPU rendering.

With new features, faster and more memory-efficient rendering V-Ray GPU is better than ever.
V-Ray Enmesh

Effortlessly tile 3D geometry patterns across objects and create surfaces with lots of detail in no time. Enmesh is perfect for crafting chainmail, woven fabric, pebbled pathways, fences, and more. Plus, it uses much less memory compared to manual displacement or copying.

Faster animation rendering

Render image sequences up to four times faster with V-Ray GPU. V-Ray now caches bitmaps between animation frames, eliminating the need for reloads and leading to a substantial increase in rendering speed.
