V-Ray for Katana


Product Overview:

V-Ray and Katana are cornerstones of Atomic Fiction's workflow. Chaos Group has an obvious passion for making amazing, production-focused tools and are constantly looking towards the future.

Key Features

New in V-Ray 3.6 for Katana:

POWERFUL PRODUCTION RENDERING - V-Ray for Katana delivers highly-optimized, adaptive ray traced rendering to meet the demands of professional animation and VFX. Render true cinematic quality with global illumination, depth of field and motion blur.

MASSIVE SCENES - V-Ray for Katana is built to handle huge workloads and massive scenes with heavy geometry and textures. V-Ray supports Katana’s native workflows and adds optimized instancing for even more performance.

GLOBAL ILLUMINATION - Choose from ray traced (unbiased) and hybrid (biased) global illumination methods for the best balance of quality and speed.

PHYSICAL LIGHTS - Simulate realistic natural, artificial, and image-based lighting with a wide range of light types and shapes, including area lights, mesh lights and more.

PHYSICALLY-BASED MATERIALS - Create physically-based materials with multiple layers – now with GGX highlights. And choose from a variety of purpose-built shaders for specialized materials.

OUT-OF-CORE TILED TEXTURES - Work with production-ready, multiresolution tiled textures in memory-efficient TX and OpenEXR formats.

V-RAY SCENE WORKFLOW - Bring in complete shading networks for V-Ray materials built in Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max. Export and render V-Ray scene files with V-Ray Standalone.

CHARACTERS & CREATURES - Create photoreal characters and creatures with V-Ray’s optimized tools and shaders for skin, ray traced SSS, hair and fur.

VOLUME RENDERING - Import OpenVDB, Field 3D, and PhoenixFD files with the V-Ray Volume Grid, and fine-tune rendered output with V-Ray's versatile volume shader.

RENDER ELEMENTS - Select from over 30 built-in render elements for complete control in compositing.
