The world's most complete rendering software for animation and visual effects.

For 3D artists who need a fast and flexible renderer, Chaos® V-Ray® is built for speed, and designed for production. No matter the project, V-Ray delivers when it matters most.

Emmy and Academy Award-winning rendering technology.

V-Ray is production-proven. For more than a decade, the world’s leading studios have used V-Ray to render over 400 television series and feature films. In 2017, V-Ray’s ray tracing technology received a Sci-Tech Academy Award for its contribution to photorealistic visual effects. In 2021, V-Ray was awarded with an Engineering Emmy for advancing the use of fully ray-traced rendering.

This includes support for MASH, Bifrost-USD, MayaUSD, as well as your favorite Maya plugins, including Golaem, Massive, Ornatrix, Chaos Phoenix, Yeti, and more.

Easy to deploy and customize.

V-Ray is easy to deploy on any Windows, macOS, or Linux network, and offers flexible licensing options for you to choose from. The bundled V-Ray Standalone renders scenes directly with V-Ray, which is perfect for headless render-farm nodes. 

V-Ray for Maya also includes two software development kits to customize your rendering workflow. For example, you can write custom shaders with the V-Ray SDK (C++) or build custom pipeline tools with the V-Ray App SDK (Python).
