- Resumable Rendering
Stop your render at any point and pick up where you left off.
- Global Illumination
Choose from several global illumination options – exact, approximate or a hybrid of both.
- Accurate Lights
Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image- based lighting. With area lights, sun & sky and IES lights, you can render artistically – and accurately.
- Photorealistic Camera
Real-world camera controls let you work like a photographer. Render images with detailed depth of field and cinematic motion blur.
- Interactive Lens Effects
Instantly add GPU-accelerated glare and bloom for added photorealism. Fine-tune lens effects interactively while you render.
- Memory-Efficient Textures
Work with production-ready, multiresolution tiled textures from your favorite applications, like MARI, Mudbox and Zbrush.
- Physically-based Materials
Create any type of physical material. From multilayered car paint to accurate subsurface scattering, you can make any material imaginable.
- Virtual Reality
Experience your project in virtual reality. Create content for popular VR headsets with 6×1 cubic and spherical stereo camera types.
- Alsurface Material
General-purpose shader by Anders Langlands includes built-in SSS controls; popular for skin.
- Specialty Geometry
Create unique geometry like infinite planes, metaballs and isosurfaces, particles and object cutaways with render-time booleans.
- Hair & Fur
Render realistic hair efficiently and flicker-free. V-Ray includes procedural fur, optimized hair shaders, and supports 3ds Max Hair&Fur, HairFarm and Ornatrix.
Render fog, smoke and atmospheric effects that respond correctly to light. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and PhoenixFD.
- Render Elements
37 unique beauty, utility and matte passes give you more control over your rendered images for compositing.
- V-Ray Frame Buffer
Review, analyze and post process your renders directly in V-Ray’s advanced frame buffer. You can be sure your images will match your final output.
