Key V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max benefits
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
