This page provides information on V-Ray Scene Files (.vrscene) and how to use them in workflows.


The .vrscene file format is an ASCII file that can be exported from Cinema 4D and other platforms that use V-Ray. It contains all the information about the scene such as geometry, lights, and shaders, and can be rendered with the V-Ray Standalone. This functionality can transfer lights and entire assets with their textures and materials between V-Ray platforms. Animation is also included.
