V-Ray RT Can Change the Way We Design

June 12, 2009 1 min read

The Moore Law is supplying us with an incredible and ever growing amount of computer power. There is so much computer power, in fact, that most of the time we use only a small fraction of what is available on our workstation. Why not use some of this unused power to improve our design and rendering processes? This is the idea behind the new V-Ray RT for 3ds Max, where RT means Real Time (more info on the Chaos Group website). The concept is simple: while you work as usual in 3ds Max (or in the future it could be Rhino 3D or Cinema4D) an application running in the background generates a high quality rendering of your current 3ds Max view. Move your point of view and the rendering will start a new image, pause for a second, and the rendered image will catch up with an incredible photorealistic quality. To get a better idea of how it works, I recommend watching this 10 minute video created by Peter Guthrie, an Architectural Illustrator/Computer Graphics artist based in London.

Enjoy!
