V-Ray for formZAcademic is a collaboration between Chaos Group and AutoDesSys. AutoDesSys develops and supports the product which is based on the V-Ray AppSDK and V-Ray 3D rendering technologies.
VRay for formZ brings 3D models to life with ease and agility. The unprecedented integration with V-Ray allows for rendering and lighting to be an integral part of the formZ design process, not just a final step. A powerful tool added to the formZ product lineup.
Powerful hybrid rendering - You can render on NVIDIA CUDA GPUs, CPUs — or a combination of both.
Material library- over 550 realistic physical based materials, such as glass, coated plastics or metals, wood,stone and etc.
V-Ray Grass and fur - Realistic grass, fabrics and carpet now possible with V-Ray Fur.
Denoiser – With V-Ray's new denoising technology, you can automatically eliminate noise and cut render times by up to 50%!
Aerial perspective – Add realistic atmosphere and depth to your renders with V-Ray's new Aerial perspective controls.
Virtual Reality –Verify designs at 1:1 scale in popular VR headsets like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR.
Cutaways with Clipper – Render sections and cutaways with ease using the V-Ray Clipper.
Powerful light calculations – the V-Ray Adaptive Lights algorithm will speed renders up to seven times faster on some scenes.
V-Ray Frame Buffer – Fine-tune your render's color, exposure, and more directly in V-Ray's frame buffer.
Volumetric Environment - This new settings category includes improved support for Arial Perspective and adds Environment Fog. Environment fog is an atmospheric effect that allows the simulation of participating effects such as fog, atmospheric dust, etc.
Toon Material - This new material method shades with solid colors and outlines to create a variety of ""cartoon style"" effects.
The "Pack" option for exporting V-Ray scene files now works properly.
The Raytrace Noise limit setting is now retained with the formZ project.
The "Clean" button at the bottom of the V-Ray settings rests the V-Ray rendering memory.
Numerous performance and stability enhancements.
