V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max - Beyond Rendering!

V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max - Beyond Rendering!

Design8 is excited to introduce V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max! V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max lets you do more with your renderer than ever before. Composite renders and interactively relight your scenes in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer. Set up materials fast with new presets and over 500 ready-made shaders. V-Ray 5 helps you save time and make your renders look even better.

What's New - V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max

  • Light Mixing
    Explore lighting possibilities interactively in real-time. Use LightMix in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer to freely experiment with lighting changes after you render, save out permutations, and push back improvements you’d like to have in your scene.
  • Layered Compositing
    The new Layer compositor lets you fine-tune and finish your images directly in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer — without the need for a separate post-processing app.
  • Material Manager
    Efficiently browse from a library of over 500 render-ready materials including metals, glass, wood and more.
  • Material Presets
    Save time creating common materials with presets for aluminum, chrome, glass and more.
  • Material Previews
    New rendered material swatches show you exactly what your materials will look like.
  • Coat Layer
    Add reflective coatings directly in the updated V-Ray Material, saving you both material creation and rendering time vs. using Blend material.
  • Sheen Layer
    Create soft microfiber fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen options in the updated V-Ray Material.
  • Texture Randomization
    Add variety to your scene with the new VRayUVWRandomizer map and enhanced VRayMultiSubTex controls.
  • Stochastic Texture Tiling
    Automatically remove texture tiling artifacts with the new Stochastic tiling option on the VRayUVWRandomizer.
  • Extended V-Ray Dirt
    Weathered streaks and dirt in crevices are now easy with the enhanced V-Ray Dirt, which now employs both ambient and inner occlusion.
  • New Sun and Sky Model
    Reproduce the subtleties of twilight when the sun is below the horizon with the new Sun and Sky model.
  • Light Path Expressions
    Use the behavior of light, rather than just geometry, to produce flexible masks for very efficient compositing. Built-in presets make getting started easy, while scripting is there for ultimate control.
  • Blue-Noise Sampling
    Achieve better noise distribution with fewer samples.
  • Native ACEScg Support
    Select industry-standard ACEScg for rendering with automatic color space adjustment for textures, dispersion, sun & sky, and light temperature colors.
  • Initial Out-of-Core
    Initial out-of-core implementation to handle your largest scenes.
