Previz with full-size scenes, that can be reused in production Ray tracing in real-time without scene simplification or baking, using the same materials and lighting as your production team.
Real-time reference A real-time ray-traced view that closely matches your production rendering results as you finalize your scene. Also perfect for over-the-shoulder discussions while making decisions.
Chaos Vantage 2 adds powerful new capabilities enabling you to convey your designs even more effectively. Toggle between different moods and variations of your project with the scene states. Visualize realistic vegetation moving in the wind and animated people interacting with their design. Composite your images with support for popular render elements like “back to beauty” and material and object masks. And much more.
Scene states Assign different light setups, materials, object transformation, and post-process looks to different cameras. Easily recall and send them for batch rendering.
Scatter Populate your scenes with millions of objects in just a few clicks. Our new scatter tool allows you to quickly and easily create forests, fields, crowds, and more.
Deformed meshes Animate people and vegetation and create richer animations for your project presentations.
Render elements Add the most popular render elements, as well as object and material masks, to fine-tune your images in post.
Real-time rendering - Render your scenes in 100% ray traced real-time through the power of DXR-compatible GPUs. Enjoy physically accurate cameras, lights, and materials while retaining game-like interactivity.
Live Link animation rendering - Get a live raytraced view of your scene, and render animations with a live link from 3ds Max, Maya, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, and Cinema 4D. Changes you make in your scene will instantly appear in Chaos Vantage.
Denoising - Employ the Vantage native denoiser designed for real time denoising or the NVIDIA AI Denoiser, when rendering high quality output to automatically remove noise.
Batch rendering - Easily queue camera views and animation sequence jobs in the render queue.
Live link - Instantly sync changes done to the scene in your DCC without exporting vrscenes.
Material workflow - The material tab lets you easily preview, assign, replace, and search materials for an interactive workflow.
3D navigation - Navigate and direct your cameras using the popular 3DConnexion SpaceMouse controller.
HDR Monitor support - Make your projects extra radiant with HDR monitor support.
Quality presets - Quickly choose between quality and interaction speed with a single slider, allowing you to set Vantage for high-quality rendering or faster feedback.
Animations & special effects
Deformed meshes - Animate people and vegatation and create richer animations for your project presentations.
Animation Editor - Easily create animations by dropping cameras, adjusting length, adding transitions and exporting video or image sequences.
Extended animations - Take even more .vrscene animation effects into Vantage. From flickering and fading lights to animating the tiling offset, your animated materials, textures, and lights now work seamlessly in Vantage.
Scattering fog - Set the mood for your scenes with realistic environmental effects such as god rays, light shafts through windows, streetlights, with volumetric fog with realistic light scattering.
Global Illumination - Vantage GI is developed to provide maximum lighting accuracy at interactive rendering speed.
Ambient occlusion - Add detail to your renderings with contact shadows using raytraced ambient occlusion.
Geolocated time of day - Perform accurate light studies by quickly and easily setting up the sun for a given date, time and location. Create daylight time-lapse animations with minimum effort.
Sun & Sky - Render realistic daylight for any hour of the day and create any type of cloudy sky with the user-friendly yet powerful procedural cloud system.
Accurate lights - From physically accurate Area lights, to IES lights with real world measured light distribution, to simplified point and spot lights, Vantage renders your lights with raytraced accuracy.
Light instancing - Light instances are preserved and can be controlled easily.
Light creation and placement - You can now create various types of lights directly in Vantage. Use the advanced placement options to achieve lookdev directly in Vantage without any DCC dependency.
NVIDIA RTXDI - Add plenty of dynamic lights to your scene without worrying about performance or resource constraints. Vantage implements NVIDIA RTXDI with its Direct light reservoir sampling feature.
Scene states - Assign different light setups, materials, object transformation and post-process looks to different cameras. Easily recall and send them for batch rendering.
Real-world cameras - Use real world camera parameters and work like a virtual photographer - add depth of field and motion blur to your renders.
Auto Exposure - The camera exposure adjusts automatically as you navigate in your scene.
Bloom effect - Add the popular lens effect to simulate the real-world interaction between the light sources and the camera.
Overlays - Composition guides overlays make it easier to find the perfect frame.
Orthographic cameras - Easily create top-down or facade renderings with the orthographic camera projection.
Materials & textures
Shading support - Support for Clear coat in V-Ray Material, V-Ray 2 Sided Material, Glossy Fresnel reflections, Substance textures, V-Ray MultiSubTex, MultiTexture, ForestColor, Normal maps, and more.
One-click clay override - The powerful Clay option significantly streamlines the material overrides process when setting up lighting or presenting early designs.
Material Coat - Add reflective coating to your material to achieve effects like varnished wood or metallic paint.
Multiple UV channels - Enrich your projects by creating sophisticated materials such as stacking labels or adding decals with newly added support for multiple UV channels.
Dynamic textures - Vantage automatically resizes the scene textures and uses the most optimal size. This greatly improves memory efficiency and allows you to load even larger scenes.
Normal maps - Add depth detail like bumps and dents to improve the realism of your surface material.
Image sequences as textures - Turn the TV on or light up the fireplace by using image file lists to animate textures.
Randomizer - Remove repeating patterns and add more realism to your textures using randomization controls.
Chaos Cosmos integration - A collection of high-quality, render-ready 3D assets, HDR images and materials that quickly add believable entourage to your interior or exterior scene.
