Footnotes


1 – The Sampler Info Render Element supports different UVW Coordinate types through its different pass types. For more details, please see the Sampler Info Render Element page.

2 – It is supported in V-Ray for 3ds Max 2019. Some OSL maps are not supported yet.

3 – Falloff map does not support Shadow/Light type.

4 – Substance2 is supported.

5 VRayCryptomatte RE is supported when rendering with Bucket Image Sampler.

6VRayLightMix will give an output the way it is set in the original scene, and its settings cannot be further edited directly in the cloud environment.

7 – Support is confirmed for tyFlow v0.16122 [BETA] (June 13 2021). There may be occasional failures with other versions while the product is still in Beta and major changes to it happen.

8 – Using HDRI Environment from Max native osl maps can produce a different result when rendering with Chaos Cloud Rendering.

9 – Gradient Ramp as bump texture is not supported.

10 – Currently, Anima 4D people export to Chaos Cloud Rendering produces large size files and their upload to the cloud might be sluggish.

11BerconGradient Lighting, Random, Particle age, Particle speed and Particle size types are not supported. Normal and Distance types To Object and Object Z are not supported.

12 – "Limit to visibility" feature is not supported in animations and with multiple cameras with Forest Pro version 7.

13 – VRayObjectID is always rendered with Integer (no Anti-Aliasing) mode in Chaos Cloud Rendering.

14 – RailClone mapping features are not supported in Chaos Cloud Rendering with RailClone's Use Instancing Engine option enabled. More details are available at Itoo's RailClone requirements page under V-Ray RT/GPU.

15 – Animation of cloud parameters is currently not supported.

16 – Note that the noise pattern renders differently in Chaos Cloud/V-Ray Standalone. Use the VRayNoiseTex instead to keep consistent results.

17 – Irradiance Map GI engine is deprecated. It doesn't support some of the new V-Ray features and will be soon removed as an option.

18 – Note that the Seed parameter of the Cellular map renders differently on Chaos Cloud and V-Ray Standalone.


Additional Notes


  • Currently, Chaos Cloud Rendering does not support animated formats for input.
  • Starting with V-Ray 6, update 1, VFB Render region option is supported.
