Chaos Scans Plug-in is a collection of materials that would take you hours to create by hand, scanned to perfection. Enjoy over 2500 pre-made materials that fit perfectly in your V-Ray workflow with a simple drag and drop.
The subscription includes access to the Chaos Scans Library, which contains over 2500 pre-scanned materials ready to be applied to 3D visualizations in 3ds Max, Maya, Rhino, SketchUp, Revit and Modo. The growing collection includes samples of car paint, fabric, leather, wood, plastic, metal and more.
Why Chaos Scans
Photoreal materials Each Chaos Scans material is generated using thousands of images. Real-world response to lighting, no seams - the result is often indistinguishable from the original sample.
Complex materials made simple Chaos Scans require no prior material-building knowledge, or use of reference materials. Simply choose your desired scan, drop it on a surface and you’re ready to render.
Great variety Render a wide selection of physical materials including car paint, plastic, leather, fabric, foil and more. Plus, we’ve teamed up with some of the finest real world producers, so you can present your clients with the actual material you’ll be using before building your design.
Built for V-Ray Chaos Scans work seamlessly across the V-Ray products portfolio. You get to keep your design intent while having full flexibility to move your work across your favorite content creation tools.
Incredibly photoreal - Chaos Scans uses high-quality hardware to capture the material’s texture in exceptional quality. No loss of detail, fidelity, or color.
Physically accurate - Chaos Scans are created from thousands of images, capturing a material's bidirectional texture function (BTF), recreating a material's true surface appearance and response to light.
Volumetric translucency - Chaos Scans materials capture translucency in volumetric materials with varying thickness.
Seamlessly tileable - Chaos Scans materials repeat without joins.
Customizable - Fine-tune the appearance of materials directly in your favorite content creation tool.
Triplannar mapping - Chaos scans materials can be applied by proprietary triplannar mapping, which removes the need for explicit UV mapping.
Render Elements - Chaos Scans support separation into several render elements: clear coat reflections, direct light, indirect lighting by spawned rays, opacity and received caustics stored.
GPU support - Chaos Scans are compatible with V-Ray GPU for increased performance and flexibility.
Car paints & paints - Simulate the look of highly-detailed car paint, complete with orange peel and clear coat.
