Chaos Vantage is the fastest route to real-time. It is a technology for exploring and manipulating V-Ray scenes in real-time within a 100% ray traced environment. Artists and designers simply drag and drop their V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) to explore them immediately in real-time – without wasting time optimizing geometry, unwrapping UVs or light baking. Once in Vantage, users have the freedom to define and recall views and scene states, create immersive experiences and better communicate their designs.
This rich experience can be part of a live 3ds Max session, which is also coming to our other V-Ray 5 integrations throughout 2021.
What is Chaos Vantage used for?
- Design exploration for personal understanding or informal, internal review
- Design validation and presenting designs to either a supervisor or a client
- Photorealistic previsualization
- Quick rendering of final images and animations, where users want to present their design with great quality
- Greatly shortens the feedback iteration phase

Chaos Group products are licensed via an online licensing system. It used to be licensed with hardware lock (USB dongle), but that system is being phased out. Online licensing requires Internet access. Licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. For offline use, licenses may be checked out for up to 15 days at a time.
In exceptional cases, dongle licensing can still be offered. Contact us for more information.
