VRscans Plug-in is combination of a hardware-based scanning system and a software-based rendering plugin that work together to easily create material properties for creating realistic renderings without the usual workflow of texture maps and tweaking shader settings. This enables a high level of accuracy for visualizing real-world materials in renders.
The VRscans plugin is the part of V-Ray (v 3.5 and above) which provides the UI for importing, modifying and using the VRscans materials in the supported platforms:
The subscription includes access to the VRscans Library, which contains over1000 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.
MORE THAN TEXTURES - VRscans provides a photorealistic level of quality and real-world responses to lighting conditions.
STOCK OR CUSTOM - VRscans shine right out of the box. Use them as perfect copies of real materials, or as accurate references to build your own.
FASTER WORKFLOW - Photorealism with a simple drag-and-drop. Shaders that took hours to perfect are now ready in a couple of clicks.
V-RAY NATIVE - VRscans are engineered by the same team that created V-Ray. The two products work together seamlessly.
WIDE CHOICE - Choose from а wide variety of ready to use materials. Or send your own samples and the supplier can scan them for you.
PART OF V-RAY COLLECTION - A great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations. Included in the V-Ray Collection, the ultimate 3D rendering and simulation toolset.
EASY TO USE VRscans require no prior material-building knowledge, or use of reference materials.
SEAMLESSLY TILEABLE VRscans materials repeat without joins.
CUSTOMIZABLE Fine-tune the appearance of materials directly in Max or Maya.
BUILT FOR V-RAY Render with V-Ray directly from your preferred content creation platform. Now available in 3ds Max, Maya, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, Modo and Houdini.
PHYSICAL MATERIALS Render a wide variety of physical materials including plastic, leather, stone, metal, wood, and fabric.
CAR PAINTS Simulate the look of highly-detailed car paint, complete with orange peel and clear coat.
