Overview

These features are supported by V-Ray for Unreal. Currently supported versions of Unreal Engine are 4.25.4, 4.26.2 and 4.27.2

For best results when importing vrscene files make sure your scenes are authored and optimized for V-Ray GPU 5, V-Ray GPU Next or V-Ray GPU 3.6.

All supported features from Unreal Engine are listed in the Rendering table below.

Only Render nodes for V-Ray 5 are supported.

V-Ray for Unreal only supports normal maps in tangent space.

V-Ray for Unreal uses only the V-Ray Hybrid engine.
