- Real-world cameras
Work like a photographer, with controls for exposure, white balance, depth of field and more.
- Automatic exposure & white balance
Capture the perfect exposure every time. The new Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance camera controls make rendering as simple as point and shoot.
- Lens effects
Add that extra touch of photorealism with real-world camera lens effects such as bloom and glare.
- Virtual Reality
Experience your designs at 1:1 scale. Create content for popular VR headsets with 6×1 cubic and spherical stereo camera types.
Materials and textures
- Physical materials
Create great looking materials that look exactly like the real thing.
- Material library
Download over 500 4K-quality architectural materials from our library on demand. Glass, metal, wood — any texture you need for your model is available and render-ready.
- Native materials support
Render an enhanced version of your Revit materials automatically.
Add images to paintings, signs, screens and more. V-Ray for Revit has full support for Revit Decals.
Give your model a sketch-like look. Use the global contour settings to create every outline automatically or the Contour material attribute to highlight a certain region.
- Coat & Sheen materials
Use these two new layers to add distinct effects to V-Ray materials. The Coat layer creates polished surfaces while the Sheen layer is perfect for realistic fabrics such as silk or velvet.
Use the UVW Randomization asset to create realistic materials by randomizing patterns and colors. The Stochastic Tiling functionality removes texture tiling seams.
- Weathering and dirt
Easily add weathering effects to any surface of your model with the V-Ray Dirt texture with complete control over its position and amount.
The V-Ray Material adds native support for metallic reflections (Metalness) for greater compatibility with PBR materials from applications like Substance Designer.
- Texture maps
Create realistic and unique shaders using any texture map or one of V-Ray’s many built-in procedural textures – Gradient, Temperature, Tri-Planar, etc.
- Material overrides
Make the most out of your early designs and get a feel of your project by quickly rendering cardboard models.
- Chaos Scans
1000+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray.
- Environment Fog
Quickly add realistic atmospheric depth and haze and use true 3D fog with realistic light scattering.
- Aerial perspective
Simulate natural looking skies with realistic atmospheric depth.\
- Volumetric materials
Realistic material light scattering and translucency.
- Geometry replacements
Work smart without altering your BIM database. Use your Revit families as stand-ins for all V-Ray objects.
- V-Ray Proxies
Use your Revit families as stand-ins for V-Ray proxy objects. These are memory efficient models of highly detailed objects like trees and cars.
- V-Ray Grass & Fur
Render realistic grass, carpets or fabric.
- Randomize proxy objects
Add variety to your V-Ray entourage such as plants and trees by randomizing their scale and rotation.
- V-Ray Scene
Link and render V-Ray scenes from other applications such as 3ds Max, Rhino, and SketchUp. Share complete ready-to-render V-Ray for Revit files.
Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling when creating materials such as brick and stone. The displacement asset can be applied to both V-Ray materials and Revit materials.
- Section Box
Render sections easily with full support for Revit’s native section box.
- Infinite Ground Plane
Create context for your project with a click of a button.
