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.

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.

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.
