When you're ready to create photorealistic renderings and animations, V-Ray does it all. And now, V-Ray 6 for SketchUp lets you do even more. Powerful new tools let you create detailed geometric patterns and beautiful custom skies. New and improved materials boost rendering speeds and realism. And cloud collaboration and Enscape compatibility bring teams together like never before.
Unify your workflow
At every stage of your project, from initial design to final delivery, V-Ray 6 for SketchUp has the tools you need to visualize and collaborate every step of the way.
Enscape to V-Ray compatibility
If you use Enscape with SketchUp, we've got great news for you. V-Ray 6 for SketchUp now reads Enscape scenes directly, including materials and lights, so you can design in real-time and then render with V-Ray when you’re ready to take your visualizations to the next level.
You get the best of both worlds with this new compatibility—the speed and simplicity of Enscape and the power and realism of V-Ray.
Review renders with anyone, anywhere.
Sharing renders is easy with Chaos Cloud Collaboration. Right from the frame buffer, you can upload V-Ray renders to the cloud and review them with anyone from anywhere. With cloud collaboration, you get feedback in one place so you can keep projects on track and get approvals faster.
V-Ray Enmesh is the perfect tool for creating detailed geometric patterns. It's ideal for fabrics, fences, panels, tiles, and anything that needs repeating. It's also easy to use and memory-efficient too.
V-Ray Dome lights now have a new Finite option to give them a physical size. It helps objects integrate better with their image-based lighting environment.
New & improved materials
More control and more realism than ever before.
The Distance texture lets you control where materials are applied based on their distance to and from selected objects. For example, you could add gravel and grass next to asphalt depending on how far they are from the model of the street.
New controls for adding and excluding objects let you place dirt exactly where you want it.
Enhanced translucent materials
Translucent materials can now be rendered faster than ever thanks to the improved subsurface scattering in V-Ray Materials.
Create iridescent materials like soap bubbles with the new Thin Film layer of the V-Ray Material.
More accurate reflections
Using a new energy conservation method, rough reflective materials are rendered more accurately.
Additional features & improvments
At any time, you can pause your renders and resume them right where you left off.
