V-Ray for 3ds Max is an Academy Award-winning, industry-standard, production-proven rendering software. Known for its versatility and ability to handle any type of project — from scenes with massive geometry and many lights to a single building or simple interiors — V-Ray is preferred by many 3D artists. It is used by 95% of the top AEC firms worldwide and in countless films.
V-Ray’s modern and efficient material library workflow, faster look-development with material presets, and flexible post-processing features can save users time, take them beyond just rendering and help them focus on artistic exploration — from a single creation tool. V-Ray for 3ds Max is the world’s most complete 3D rendering software for high-end visualization and production.
What it’s used for
|Architectural visualization||Game cinematics|
|Automotive and product design||Visual effects in film and television|
|Industrial design||Virtual reality|
V-Ray for 3ds Max users
▪ They are usually highly technical and can work well with advanced settings in 3ds Max and V-Ray.
▪ These artists have a good understanding of space, form and function.
▪ They deliver high-quality designs that go beyond customers’ expectations.
▪ They are also responsible for multiple visualization projects at a time and are looking to develop an efficient, streamlined workflow.
▪ They usually have too much to do within a limited time period.
▪ Software quality, and the efficiency and reliability it brings to workflows, is more important to these users than cost.
Key benefits for users
|Easily handle their toughest scenes. V-Ray is built|
to handle the biggest projects and scenes with
massive geometry and thousands of lights. Users
can render anything and everything with V-Ray.
Utilize their hardware for maximum performance.
|V-Ray helps users deliver projects faster and|
meet the tightest deadlines. V-Ray’s GPU and CPU
rendering capabilities bring a speed boost to any
production and lets users cut render times.
|Create interactive experiences in real-time — in a|
100% raytraced environment. With Chaos Vantage
users can present their ideas in 100% ray-traced
quality without the need of extra optimizations and
conversions. Make project changes directly in 3ds
Max and validate your designs on the spot.
|Post-process their renders without the need for a|
separate tool. The redesigned V-Ray Frame Buffer
with light mixing and layered compositing means
users only need to use one tool for rendering and
post-processing — no need to go back and forth
between different apps.
|Free up their machine with quick and easy cloud|
rendering. Users can turn their computers into
supercomputers with Chaos Cloud — the cloud
rendering built right into V-Ray. They can keep working
on their designs while rendering on the cloud.
|Streamline their pipeline across different platforms.|
With the wide range of platforms that V-Ray supports,
it’s easy to merge assets or exchange projects
for material coordination and consistency across
platforms. For example, users can share materials or
render geometry from V-Ray for Rhino to V-Ray for
3ds Max, or vice versa.
Interoperability with other V-Ray products
V-Ray for 3ds Max can further enhance a Rhino or SketchUp workflow with the addition of V-Ray for Rhino or V-Ray for SketchUp.
▪ Fluid, fire and smoke simulations can be added with Chaos Phoenix.
▪ More lighting and shading options can be added during the compositing stage by using V-Ray for Nuke.
▪ Professional image sequencing can be added with PdPlayer.
▪ V-Ray for 3ds Max supports VRscans which allows for the most physically accurate materials to be used.
▪ V-Ray supports many tools and provides optimized support for numerous third-party plugins.
▪ Chaos Cloud gives one-click access to cloud rendering directly from V-Ray’s UI.
