Release Notes: V-Ray 6

 

Go anywhere your imagination takes you.

Create faster and render better than ever before. Populate your scenes with millions of 3D objects to create natural-looking landscapes and realistic environments quickly and easily. Generate detailed surfaces using repeating geometric patterns at no extra memory cost. Create beautiful custom skies with procedural clouds, collaborate in the Cloud, and much more.

 


 

 

Build worlds

Create anything imaginable with new tools, allowing you to quickly and easily build worlds - without limits.

 

 


 

Chaos Scatter

Populate your scenes with millions of objects in just a few clicks. Our new scatter tool allows you to quickly and easily create forests, fields, crowds, and more, without using lots of memory. Download free 3D models and scatter presets from Chaos Cosmos to get started.

See Chaos Scatter




 

V-Ray Enmesh

Tile 3D geometry patterns across objects to create complex surfaces with lots of detail for stunning close-up shots. Enmesh is ideal for creating intricate panels, fences, fabrics, and so much more, and it uses much less memory than displacement or copying by hand.

See V-Ray Enmesh




 

V-Ray Decal with Displacement

You can now use V-Ray Decal to add displacement to any surface for even more realistic cracked walls, rocks, embossed lettering, and more.

See V-Ray Decal




 

V-Ray Proxy Object Hierarchy

Easily turn an individual object’s visibility or material override on or off with the new V-Ray Proxy hierarchical view. Set custom order by name, and streamline your geometry exchange and custom library workflows.

See VRayProxy




 

Collaborate as you create

Fast-forward your project’s reviews and approvals.

 


 

Chaos Cloud Collaboration

Get rapid, consolidated feedback on your work’s progress. Upload your renders to Chaos Cloud Collaboration right from V-Ray’s Frame Buffer, and share your work with clients, team members, and other stakeholders for easy review, markup, and comments at any time.




 

Streamline your workflow

Get the job done faster and save time to be creative.

 


 

Procedural clouds

Craft just the right cloudy sky for your environment in just a few clicks with V-Ray Sun and Sky’s new procedural clouds system. Easily simulate a variety of cloud types and weather conditions, from partly cloudy to overcast. Render realistic stills, or dynamic timelapses.

See VRaySun




 

Finite dome light mode

Elevate your HDRI environment renders with the new, more flexible ground projection capabilities of the V-Ray Dome Light. Set the scale of a dome light, and have full control over blend settings with the new finite mode.

See V-Ray Dome Light




 

Faster UI draw times

Get a smoother experience when working with shading networks. V-Ray’s materials and textures interface now comes with much faster load times.




 

Light Mix light selection

Easily access scene lights with the option to select them directly from the Light Mix interface.

See VRayLightMix




 

Texture batch load

Add variety to your scene even faster than before and create shader variations in no time with the new texture batch load option inside VRayMultiSubTex.

See VRayMultiSubTex




 

Shading - powered up

Speed up shading and create even more physically accurate materials.

 

Enhanced V-Ray Material energy preservation

Render metals and rough reflective surfaces even more accurately using the new energy compensation method.




 

Thin Film layer

Easily create iridescent materials such as soap bubbles, oil spills, and more with the new Thin Film option available in the V-Ray Material.

See VRayMtl Thin Film




 

V-Ray Material Faster SSS

Render translucent materials even faster with a brand-new V-Ray Material subsurface scattering mode. Plus, low-poly translucent objects render more smoothly.

See Translucency




 

And more!

 

VFB Panorama Viewer

Now you can preview your spherical panorama renders while rendering, right from your V-Ray Frame Buffer.
