Lighting analysis tool: New Lighting Analysis render element helps to visualize the real-world illumination (Lux) values of any scene.

Physical hair material: Render more realistic-looking hair with accurate highlights and new glint and glitter controls.

Metalness: The V-Ray Material adds support for PBR shaders with new Metalness reflection controls.

GPU VRscans: VRscans are now compatible with V-Ray GPU for increased performance and flexibility.

Render faster

2x faster GPU rendering: Fast new GPU rendering architecture that now supports more high-end production features.

GPU volume rendering: V-Ray GPU now supports blazing fast rendering of volumetric effects like smoke, fire and fog.

GPU bucket rendering: Faster multi-GPU performance on workstations and distributed rendering, plus added support for Cryptomatte render elements.

Smarter effects

New lens effects: New glare and bloom lens effects have been fully redesigned to be faster and more accurate.

Rolling shutter: Emulate the warped motion blur effects common in digital video and cell phone cameras.

Toon shader: Easily create non-photorealistic, cartoon and cel-shading effects. Now with new options for advanced line control.
