The new layer-based compositor allows you to combine render passes, set blending modes and adjust colors without going to a separate app.
See more at the Layers page.
GPU + CPU RENDERING
Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray, you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.
GPU PRODUCTION RENDERING
Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU. Now even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.
See how to set up your V-Ray engine.
FAST INTERACTIVE RENDERING
Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.
Easily harness the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.
Find out more about the Distributed Rendering setup.
Render stills and animations alike in the cloud, at the push of a button — now with full support for Chaos Cloud, our cloud rendering service.
Render realistic fog, smoke and atmospheric effects. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and Phoenix FD.

AUTO EXPOSURE AND WHITE BALANCE
The V-Ray Camera can automatically set exposure and white balance for you, so you don't have to do it manually.
Find out more at the Physical Camera page.
The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence that instantly reduces noise while you render.
Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It's faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.
Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.
Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.
CAR PAINT 2 MATERIAL
Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.
IMPROVED V-RAY DIRT
Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.
PHYSICAL HAIR MATERIAL
Achieve more realistic results with the new physically accurate V-Ray Hair Material.
NEW SUN AND SKY MODEL
Capture the light of magic hour. The new Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.
Add variety to your scenes by randomizing colors and textures with V-Ray MultiSub Texture.
VRSCANS MATERIAL LIBRARY SUPPORT
Get access to a library of over 1,000 unbelievably real materials — a great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations.

NATIVE SUPPORT FOR CINEMA 4D NOISES
Enhance your renderings with different noise patterns and detailed surfaces. Now with less memory consumption.
LIGHT PATH EXPRESSIONS
For the ultimate control in compositing, you can create your own render passes with Light Path Expressions.
See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you'll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.
OUT-OF-CORE GPU RENDERING
This initial implementation of out-of-core rendering can help you render scenes that are larger than the memory of your GPU.
