V-Ray 6 for SketchUp now available!

As of today, V-Ray 6 for SketchUp is officially available. In this news item we tell you all about this new release.

Which new features does V-Ray 6 have?

V-Ray 6 for SketchUp has the following improvements:

V-Ray & Enscape compatibility

With V-Ray 6 it is possible to directly convert real-time scenes from Enscape and make them as photo realistic as possible. Because Enscape materials, objects, and lights are supported, all design decisions are preserved during the different design stages. This ensures flawless collaboration between designers and visualization experts.

Procedural clouds

Add just the right clouds to any scene without spending hours browsing through HDRI libraries. The new procedural cloud system is a flexible and memory-efficient way to create any cloudy sky and animate it for impressive timelapse presentations.

V-Ray Enmesh

Create complex geometric patterns on object surfaces to make panels, fences, fabrics, and more in an automated and memory-efficient way.

Finite Dome light

Fine-tune the scale and add depth to the environment of projects when using image-based lighting with this new V-Ray Dome Light mode.

Distance Texture

Vary effects such as displacement or procedural fur based on proximity for a realistic correlation between elements in a scene. Create a well-trodden path through a procedural lawn or form dark spots under downspouts.

Better translucent materials

Render translucent materials like frosted glass or marble faster with the V-Ray Materials improved subsurface scattering mode.

Enhanced Dirt texture

Place dirt with higher precision by adding or excluding objects.

Iridescent material

Easily create iridescent materials such as soap bubbles, oil spills, and more with the new Thin Film option available in the V-Ray Material.

More accurate reflections

Metals and rough reflective materials are displayed more accurately thanks to a new energy conservation technique.
