V-Ray Next for RevitWorkstation License is a rendering plugin that lets you create professional-quality images directly from Revit models. It helps you explore, present your designs and make critical design decisions at every stage of the design lifecycle — from schematic design, through design development and construction documents to the final polished marketing materials. When it comes to quality, it can be tailored to any requirements along the design process, helping you achieve the highest level or realism.
Render and maintain multiple views with individual lighting, mood and composition with the new View-specific settings. The latest update also adds RTX support, batch rendering, an enhanced Color Picker and lots more. All of this now available for Revit 2021.
Boasting faster performance, new Scene Intelligence, improved asset management and simpler workflows, V-Ray Next for Revit is supercharged, super smart — and ready to take on your biggest projects yet.
Render multiple views with individual lighting, mood and composition with the new View-specific settings. V-Ray also enables batch rendering, supports Revit’s sun animation and more.
Update 1 introduces a number of improvements, including an enhanced Color Picker for suggesting the best color of your designs, a quick way to replace Revit materials and more.
SUPPORTING THE LATEST & GREATEST
V-Ray now fully supports Revit 2021, the latest version of Autodesk’s BIM software. And you can accelerate GPU production rendering with NVIDIA RTX support.
Accuracy - Analyze a design according to its actual lighting and the true reflections and refractions of its materials.
Seamless Revit Integration - All decisions live in the Revit project without altering the BIM database. All workflows are done within Revit — there's no import/export.
Interoperability - Leverage the V-Ray work done in other 3D tools like 3ds Max, Rhino or SketchUp for render-ready assets and reusable materials.
Custom Entourage - Easily place custom 3D entourage in Revit without polluting your BIM database or impacting Revit's performance.
Scalable Quality - Quickly make traditional, monochromatic studies with convenient material overrides.
Power - Speed up workflow with multiple processors (CPU and/or GPU), harness networked machines with Swarm or use Chaos Cloud on demand.
CPU, GPU & HYBRID RENDERING - V-Ray comes with two powerful rendering engines. You can choose between super-fast GPU and CPU or Hybrid rendering to best suit your project needs and requirements.
INTERACTIVE RENDERING - Render interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights, materials and cameras and see the results right away.
DENOISER - A new NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence to remove noise in an instant. And the V-Ray Denoiser supports denoising individual render channels to simplify compositing.
RENDER CHANNELS - Choose from many unique beauty, utility and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.
SCENE INTELLIGENCE - Automatically analyzes your scene to optimize rendering so you get the best quality in less time.
CHAOS CLOUD - Rendering on the Cloud is just one click away.
V-RAY SWARM - Powerful and scalable distributed rendering system that's simple and fast. Get an extra speed boost with V-Ray Render nodes.
SETTINGS MANAGEMENT - Easy to share render settings across teams and projects.
SEAMLESS INTEGRATION - V-Ray naturally fits into Revit's UI and complements your Revit workflow without altering your BIM database.
ASSET EDITOR - Create, edit, save and manage your V-Ray materials all in one place with the new Asset Editor. Various advanced materials give designers even more control to fine-tune their designs.
APPEARANCE MANAGER - Take your Revit renders to the next level. With the Appearance Manager, you can set basic Revit assets to automatically switch to more realistic V-Ray assets at render time.
FRAME BUFFER - Track history of your rendered images, fine-tune their color parameters and save them directly to your Revit project.
ACCURATE LIGHTING - Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image-based lighting.V-Ray automatically converts all Revit lights to V-Ray ones and further extends Revit's lighting capabilities.
ADAPTIVE LIGHTS - This lighting algorithm dramatically speeds up rendering in scenes containing many lights.
ADAPTIVE DOME LIGHT - Render image-based lighting much faster with the new Adaptive Dome Light. It’s exceptionally quick for interiors and substantially speeds up your rendering.
LIGHTING ANALYSIS - Easily visualize real-world illumination values (lux) with the new Lighting Analysis render element.
REAL-WORLD CAMERAS - Simulate photographic cameras from Revit’s native camera views.
AUTO EXPOSURE AND WHITE BALANCE - It’s as simple as point and shoot. The V-Ray Physical Camera can now set the correct camera exposure and white balance automatically.
LENS EFFECTS - Add that extra touch of photorealism with real-world camera lens effects such as bloom and glare.
VIRTUAL REALITY - Experience your designs at 1:1 scale. Create content for popular VR headsets with 6x1 cubic and spherical stereo camera types.
DOF AND VIGNETTING - Emphasize a particular part of your rendered model with advanced camera effects like DOF and vignetting.
Materials and Textures:
PHYSICAL MATERIALS - Create great looking materials that look exactly like the real thing.
MATERIAL LIBRARY - Over 500 high-quality architectural materials — compatible with V-Ray for 3ds Max, Rhino and SketchUp.
NATIVE MATERIALS SUPPORT - Render an enhanced version of your Revit materials automatically.
DECALS - Add images to paintings, signs, screens and more. V-Ray Next for Revit adds full support for Revit Decals.
TEXTURE MAPS - Create realistic and unique shaders using any texture map or one of V-Ray’s many built-in procedural textures - Gradient, Temperature, Tri-Planar, etc.
MATERIAL OVERRIDES - Make the most out of your early designs and get a feel of your project by quickly rendering cardboard models.
VRSCANS - 1000+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray.
METALNESS - The V-Ray Material adds native support for metallic reflections (Metalness) for greater compatibility with PBR materials from applications like Substance Designer.
ENVIRONMENT FOG - Quickly add realistic atmospheric depth and haze and use true 3D fog with realistic light scattering.
RANDOMIZE PROXY OBJECTS - Add variety to your scene entourage such as plants and trees by randomizing the scale and rotation of V-Ray Proxy and V-Ray Scene instances.
DISPLACEMENT - Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling. It’s perfect for architectural materials like brick and stone.
SECTION BOX - Render sections easily with full support for Revit's native section box.
INFINITE GROUND PLANE - Create context for your project in a click of a button.
V-RAY SCENE EXPORT - Share complete ready to render V-Ray for Revit files.
