V-Ray 5.2 for SketchUp available!

V-Ray 5.2 for SketchUp available!

V-Ray 5.2 for SketchUp is officially available for download now and now contains scatter, Chaos Vantage Live Link, Cosmos materials, decals and several improvements to V-Ray Vision.

What's New

  • Scatter — Add hundreds of objects on any surface in an intuitive and memory-efficient way. Users can disperse multiple objects simultaneously and control their size, orientation, and density for maximum realism.
  • Chaos Vantage Live Link — The most complex scenes can now be explored in pure ray traced real-time with zero setup. Users can navigate and interact with the model’s true lighting and materials, and create animations and images with ease. An NVIDIA® RTX card is required to make the most of Vantage.
  • Chaos Cosmos materials — Chaos' collection of render-ready content now also contains materials, which users can use out-of-the-box and also customize their color, bump, gloss and more.
  • V-Ray Material improvements — The new thin-walled reflection control allows users to effortlessly create complex transparent and translucent materials.
  • Decals — Easily project unique materials onto objects of any shape to create effects like graffiti on a wall, markings on a road, or logos on a product.
  • More artistic control in post — The V-Ray Frame Buffer now has a sharpen and blur effect to polish final renders
  • Render log — A detailed view of the rendering process making debugging and error reporting easier.
  • New possibilities in V-Ray Vision
    • Standalone app export - Share a project via an executable file which recipients can open even without having a V-Ray license so they can enjoy the full functionality of V-Ray Vision - including navigation controls, color correction parameters and more!
    • Video export in WebM format.
    • Sun animations from SketchUp can now be loaded into Vision for lighting studies.
    • Preset grass can now be added to any surface for more realistic terrains.
    • IES light profiles can now be used for more realistic presentations in Vision.
    • And more performance and quality improvements.
