Key Features

Highly-optimized CPU Rendering
Render high-quality, high-resolution images and animations with V-Ray's adaptive ray tracing technology. V-Ray uses physically-correct methods to calculate photoreal lighting, materials, and cameras. V-Ray is optimized to use all CPU cores across multiple machines for the fastest renders possible.
Incredibly Fast GPU Rendering
Fine tune the look of your scenes in real time with the power of GPUs. Build materials, dial in cameras, and adjust lights interactively in the viewport. Switch to Production Mode when you're ready to render final images.
Variance-based Adaptive Sampling
Get cleaner renders with better noise detection.
Automatic Sampling
Save time with automatic sampling of lights and materials.
Global Illumination
Choose from several global illumination options – exact, approximate or a hybrid of both.
V-Ray Denoiser
Automatically remove noise and cut render times by up to 50%.
Accurate Lights
Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image- based lighting. With area lights, sun & sky and IES lights, you can render artistically – and accurately.
New Sky Model & Aerial Perspective
Simulate natural looking skies with realistic atmospheric depth.
Photoreal Cameras
Work like a photographer. Real-world camera controls let you capture images with detailed depth of field and cinematic motion blur.
VR & Specialy Cameras
Experience your project in virtual reality. Create content for popular VR headsets, like Samsung Gear VR, with 6x1 and spherical stereo camera types.
VRScans Material Library Support
400+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray.
Physically-Based Materials
Create any type of physical material. From multilayered car paint to accurate subsurface scattering, you can make any material imaginable.
Memory Efficient Textures
Work with production-ready, multiresolution tiled textures from your favorite applications, like MARI, Mudbox and ZBrush.
Triplanar Mapping
Quickly apply seamless textures without UVs.
Rounded Corners
Generate perfectly smooth edges at render-time with no extra modeling.
Specialty Geometry
Create unique geometry like infinite planes, metaballs and isosurfaces, particles and object cutaways with render-time booleans.
Clipper w/ Render-time Booleans
Create complex cutaways and sections using any mesh object.
Dynamic Geometry
Render massive scenes with proxy objects. V-Ray proxies efficiently replace complex scene geometry and load only at render time.
Hair & Fur
Render realistic hair efficiently and flicker-free. V-Ray includes procedural fur, optimized hair shaders, and supports 3ds Max Hair&Fur, HairFarm and Ornatrix.
Volumes
Render fog, smoke and atmospheric effects that respond correctly to light. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and PhoenixFD.
Render Elements
37 unique beauty, utility and matte passes give you more control over your rendered images for compositing.
V-Ray Frame Buffer
Review, analyze and post process your renders directly in V-Ray's advanced frame buffer. You can be sure your images will match your final output.
