For more information regarding Chaos Cosmos Content System, refer to Chaos Cosmos documentation.
Chaos Cosmos Content System delivers a 3D content library of high-quality 3D content selected from the rich V-Ray ecosystem. It allows V-Ray users, from their respective V-Ray products, to browse, place, and render 3D assets in their projects. The asset categories span across Furniture, Accessories, People, Vegetation, Vehicles, HDRIs, and more. In addition, the assets work seamlessly in the different Chaos renderers (V-Ray, V-Ray GPU, and Vision) and host apps (3Ds Max, Cinema 4D, Revit, Rhino, Sketchup, Maya, Houdini, etc).
