Chaos Vantage 2: Explore and Present V-Ray Scenes in Real-Time
Experience the power of real-time exploration and presentation of V-Ray scenes with Chaos Vantage 2. This cutting-edge technology allows artists and designers to effortlessly immerse themselves in a fully ray-traced environment, without the need for time-consuming optimizations or baking processes. By simply dragging and dropping or live linking V-Ray scenes (.vrscene), you can instantly delve into your designs, compare variations, define views, and communicate your ideas with unmatched clarity. There’s also a direct live link available from 3ds Max, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, and Cinema 4D, so you can use it just like a viewport.
With the release of Vantage 2.0, we are introducing changes to our product pricing. Vantage 2.0 will now be sold as a separate product going forward and will no longer be included in V-Ray® Premium or Enterprise subscription plans.
