Go anywhere your creative instincts take you and build anything imaginable — faster than ever before.
Quickly and easily create anything from vast, complex environments to intricate geometric patterns. Shade faster, create even more physically accurate materials. And, when you’re ready, fast-forward your collaboration, reviews and approvals — all in one place. And much more!



Build worlds / Create worlds

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




Chaos Scatter

Create forests, fields, crowds, and more using our new scatter tool. It's fast, easy, and it lets you add lots of detail to your scene without using lots of memory. Download one of our free scatter presets from Chaos Cosmos to get started.

See Chaos Scatter


V-Ray Enmesh

With Enmesh, you can think of geometry like a texture — but rather than repeating an image over a surface, it uses tileable geometry. Enmesh is ideal for creating patterns such as fences and fabrics, and it uses much less memory than displacement or copying by hand.

See VRayEnmeshMod


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 VRayDecal

V-Ray Proxy Object Hierarchy

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

See VRayProxy
