  • Improved Sun and Sky model
    Render your scene at the perfect light of magic hour. The Improved Sun & Sky model is more accurate, with a better looking sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.
  • Optimized V-Ray Core
    V-Ray 5 offers a faster and better rendering experience.
  • New software architecture
    Much faster scene loading and scene export thanks to the newly refactored V-Ray backend.
