using lots of memory. Free Scatter presets are also
available in Chaos Cosmos.
V-Ray Decal with Displacement. You can now use
V-Ray Decal to add displacement to any surface for
even more realistic cracked walls, rocks, embossed
lettering, and more.
V-Ray Proxy Object Hierarchy. Easily turn on or off an
individual object’s visibility or material override with
the new V-Ray Proxy hierarchical view. Set custom
order by name, and streamline your geometry
exchange and custom library workflows.
V-Ray Enmesh. With Enmesh, you can think of geometry like a texture — but rather than repeating an

Enmesh is ideal for creating patterns such as fences
and fabrics, and it uses much less memory than
displacement or copying by hand.
