V-Ray 6 for Maya packs in a number of powerful new tools that allow users to generate complex surfaces at no extra memory cost, and take their product design and HDRI renders to the next level.
Key features in V-Ray 6 for Maya include:
Finite Dome light mode. Elevate your product design
and HDRI environment renders with the new, more
flexible ground projection capabilities of the V-Ray
Dome Light. Set the scale of your light, and have full
control over blend settings with the new Finite Dome
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.
Procedural clouds. Craft just the right cloudy sky for
your environment in just a few clicks with V-Ray Sun
and Sky’s new procedural clouds system. No need to
settle for a static HDR or a cloudless sky. Now you can
easily simulate a variety of cloud types and weather
conditions, from partly cloudy to overcast. Render
realistic stills, or dynamic timelapses.
V-Ray Enmesh. With Enmesh, you can think of geometry like a texture — but rather than repeating an
image over a surface, it uses tileable geometry.
Enmesh is ideal for creating patterns such as fences
and fabrics, and it uses much less memory than
displacement or copying by hand.
WHat'S NEW in V-RAY 6 FOr Maya?
Chaos Cloud Collaboration. Get rapid, consolidated feedback on your work’s progress. Upload your renders to
Chaos Cloud Collaboration right from V-Ray’s Frame Buffer, and share your work with colleagues and clients to
add comments and annotations, see panorama views and more — from anywhere in the world.
Get reports on the time spent calculating shaders and volumes in your scenes. Locate all
hot spots in your scene and optimize pipelines for even
faster rendering. Pair V-Ray Profiler with the Memory
Tracker, and you now have everything you need to
monitor and optimize your projects
Light Cache in IPR. Make better decisions while iterating on your designs with V-Ray’s Interactive Production Renderer (IPR) output now being identical to
the production renderer.
Background Cloud Cloud Submissions. You now have
uninterrupted access to Maya when submitting to
Chaos Cloud Rendering, so you can continue working.
Enhanced USD Support. Experience a USD workflow
that’s smoother than ever. We’ve added support for
the latest Maya USD version as well as included new
enhancements for OpenVDB volumes and V-Ray
material exports, promoting an easy exchange with
Solaris and USD-powered pipelines.
Faster Rendering. V-Ray Environment Fog now renders
up to 30% faster. Translucent material rendering is
also up to 2x faster thanks to V-Ray Material’s brandnew Illumination mode. Plus, scenes featuring thousands of instances now render more efficiently.
Thin Film layer. Create realistic soap bubbles, oil spills
and more with the new Thin Film option available in
the V-Ray Material.
Enhanced V-Ray Material energy preservation.
Render even more physically accurate rough metals
and other reflective surfaces with enhanced V-Ray
Material energy preservation.
Composition Guides Layer in VFB. Fine-tune your
scenes’ compositions without a separate application.
With customizable overlays, the new composition
guides layer in the VFB allows you to easily experiment
and enhance your image compositions.
VFB Panorama Viewer. Now you can preview your
spherical panorama renders while rendering, right
from your V-Ray Frame Buffer.
V-Ray is now available in three plans: Solo, Premium, and Enterprise. The Solo plan gives independent artists
and freelancers an affordable and full-featured solution for rendering on one computer. The Premium plan
is perfect for those who need access to floating licenses and Chaos companion products such as Phoenix,
Player, Scans, and Vantage. The Enterprise plan is ideal for large studios considering volume purchases.
Users can now render with V-Ray in any host application and benefit from the
powerful suite of Chaos products and services with just a single license. Each of the new plans (Solo, Premium, and Enterprise) includes Chaos Cosmos’ high-quality
assets. Last but not least, all V-Ray plans include high-quality support at no extra cost.
