This page provides information about submitting render jobs to Chaos Cloud Rendering from V-Ray for 3ds Max.


Submitting render jobs to Chaos Cloud Rendering is done directly from V-Ray for 3ds Max's interface. This page walks you through the steps of doing so.

Chaos Cloud requires the installation of the Chaos Cloud Client Application. For more information, please visit the Installation of Chaos Cloud Client page.

If you add a new version of a job you have already submitted, its upload will be much quicker than the initial upload. Chaos Cloud Rendering compares every new job to the existing ones, and if there is a match, the client app uploads only the changes. This is useful when you make a new iteration of an existing scene and is why it's recommended to keep your jobs in Chaos Cloud Rendering while you are still working on them.

  • .vrimg is a Chaos proprietary file format used by the V-Ray Frame Buffer to store the rendered image incrementally (bucket by bucket) while rendering in full floating-point format, with all available render elements. It is used as a render output but it is not recommended to use it as a texture file format. VRIMG contains metadata, i.e. render statistics. It supports dynamic bucket size.
