V-Ray has changed the face of computer graphics. Offering state-of-the-art rendering technology, V-Ray powers the most advanced photo-realistic images being generated today.
 

V-Ray has single-handedly changed the face of Architectural Visualization. Neoscape has been using it in production since its very first release, and we continue to use it in all of our work. It is full of relevant and robust features, while remaining speedy and easy to use. I can not imagine working without it.

Lon Grohs
Principal/Creative Director
Neoscape, Inc.

V-Ray never ceases to amaze me. It's brilliant output is somehow matched by very efficient rendering speeds. The ability to control minute details of sampling allow the user to optimize scenes to degrees that other renderers pale in comparison on. The amazing support for additional channel data via OpenEXR is also unprecedented. The shading system is straightforward and easy to get into. We can generally teach new artists the VRay setups within a week or so and they are very productive immediately. The support from the development team is so fantastic that there should be some kind of gold medal handed out for it. Very quick responses on bugs and even sometimes features. VRay continues to be a very integral part of a very tuned pipeline that is geared especially towards photographic reality.

Robert Nederhorst
VFX Supervisor
SpeedShape, Santa Monica

I’ve been using V-Ray since 2001 working in Film, TV, Commercials, and since that time it’s the only render engine I have ever needed or wanted to use. V-Ray’s ease of use and speed, coupled with its innovative approach to high end features like Global Illumination, Physically accurate Image based lighting and shaders, makes it the best render solution out there on any platform.

V-Ray Proxy Demo Video

V-Ray Proxy – Manages scene memory and efficiently renders large amounts of geometry to increase detail and complexity in scenes. V-Ray Proxy objects are dynamically loaded and unloaded at render time, which saves vital RAM resources.

V-Ray RT Demo Video

V-Ray RT CPU and GPU – This revolutionary rendering engine streamlines scene setup and provides instant visual feedback directly in SketchUp for quicker design, shading, material, and lighting decisions. It’s fast and seamless to transition between V-Ray RT and production rendering.

V-Ray Dome Light Demo Video

Dome Light – Creates simple, artifact-free image-based lighting using importance sampling of HDR images. This technique greatly optimizes light tracing and global illumination precision.

New Features:

Rendering Engines

V-Ray RT
A revolutionary rendering engine providing instant feedback and streamlining scene setup. Because V-Ray RT is built upon the same robust core as V-Ray, it is seamless to transition between V-Ray RT and production rendering. For the everyday user, this is a very powerful interactive rendering solution that allows you to simultaneously work and render inside of SketchUp. The instant visual feedback makes for quicker design, material, and lighting decisions. V-Ray RT supports both CPU and GPU!

Retrace Threshold
Reduce Light Cache artifacts and improve the appearance of glossy reflections and refractions when using this time saving feature - Use light cache for glossy rays.

Lights

Dome Light
Create simple, artifact-free image-based lighting using the Dome Light. Its powerful importance sampling analyzes HDR images and optimizes light tracing and GI precision. This new feature will streamline your workflow when using image based lighting in your scenes. It will not only save you setup and rendering time but it will also increase the quality of the image based light and shadows.

Lights as Components
V-Ray lights can now be part of a SketchUp component. This makes it easy to change the design and settings of multiple lights at one time.

Sphere Light
Create spherically shaped area lights.

Geometry

V-Ray Proxy
An indispensable tool for managing scene memory and efficiently rendering massive amounts of geometry. V-Ray Proxy objects are dynamically loaded and unloaded at render-time, saving vital RAM resources. Use V-Ray Proxy to render millions of polygons at maximum memory efficiency and increase the amount of detail and complexity of your SketchUp scenes.

Faster Parsing Times
Major speed improvements have been made when processing the SketchUp scene for rendering with V-Ray.

V-Ray Frame Buffer Improvements

Render History
This option allows you to save your rendered images and load them directly in the V-Ray frame buffer.

Compare Tool
New compare option to easily compare two rendered images directly in the V-Ray frame buffer.

V-Ray Lens Effect

Lens Effect
Allows you to achieve bloom and glare effects in your renderings.

Materials

V-Ray Material
A compact and optimized material that includes diffuse, reflection, and refraction parameters with the ability to change the BRDF.

Wrapper Material
Can be used to specify additional properties per material. Most importantly, you can now create true matte materials which shows the background as opposed to the base material.

VRMats Library
This new library contains over 100 ready to use photo realistic V-Ray materials.

Other

Rendering Presets
With our collection of interior and exterior rendering presets you can quickly switch between draft and high quality rendering settings. You can also create and save your own presets to customize and streamline your workflow.

Camera Presets
With camera presets you can quickly switch between different exposure setups for illumination scenarios like cloudy sky, after sunset, interior natural light, etc. You can create and reuse your own custom camera presets.

Set Camera Focus
You can now setup depth of field with ease by simply picking a point in the scene where you want to focus the V-Ray camera on.

Animation Support
The ability to produce animation for SketchUp projects has been streamlined, ensuring a cleaner and easier creation process.

Lock RT
The SketchUp scene can be edited without changing the view in RT.

64-bit Rendering
64-bit rendering is now supported locally and via distributed rendering.

Distributed Rendering
Offload renders to other computers and continue working in SketchUp by using the option "Don't use local machine."

Normal Mapping
Add more accurate simulation of detailed 3D surfaces in SketchUp.

Environment Mapping
Matching your SketchUp model to a background image is now easier than ever before with the additional Screen, Cylindrical and Shrink Wrap environment mapping types.

Multi-Session Support
OS X users now have the ability to set the current model that V-Ray will render.

Opacity Mapping
The option "use color texture as transparency" is available for all SketchUp materials. This is important when using PNG or TIFF textures with built-in transparency channels.

Pack and Go
Archive your SketchUp scene and all external files into a single ZIP for easy sharing and back up.

Procedural Texture Mapping
We added more texture mapping to allow you create different effect on the materials. Now you have more freedom on the materials creation.

Pricing & Upgrade policy

Chaos Group products are licensed per machine and with one V-Ray for SketchUp license you can start and use V-Ray GUI and tools inside the platform, start one local render job, speed up rendering using distributed rendering on up to 10 render slaves.

To provide optimum security, reliability, and portability Chaos Group requires a hardware key to license its software. This hardware security key protects the V-Ray License from computer malfunctions, routine hardware maintenance, and equipment changes; and it allows users to use V-Ray on multiple machines.

It is important to note that the hardware key is not a node-locked device. The V-Ray License Server is a floating license system, allowing multiple users to check out a license up to the maximum concurrent number of licenses available.

V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp customers will have the option to purchase a new hardware key or install the license on an existing one.
