V-Ray for Maya


Product Overview:

V-Ray® for Maya is the preferred rendering engine for the Film & VFX industry. The rendering engine delivers uncompromised stability, interactivity, ease of use and unprecedented speed and the vast multitude of features makes it the premier choice for the discerning professionals. V-Ray for Maya enables the rendering of even larger scenes with greater complexity and artists can rely on a faster rendering process.

Key Features

New in V-Ray 3.6 for Maya:

POWERFUL CPU RENDERING - Render superior images and animations fast with V-Ray’s highly-optimized and adaptive ray tracing technology.

SIMPLE USAGE - NEW FULL AUTOMATIC SAMPLING - Get an additional speed boost with GPU-accelerated look development and final frame rendering.

INCREDIBLY FAST GPU RENDERING - V-Ray uses physically-correct ray tracing methods to precisely calculate lights and reflected light (“GI”) as we see it in reality . You can choose from several global illumination options – precise path tracing, approximate or a hybrid of both.

ACCURATE LIGHTS - Render natural, artificial and image-based lighting with a wide range of light types, shapes and controls.

GLOBAL ILLUMINATION - Choose from ray traced and hybrid global illumination methods for the perfect balance of quality and speed.

PHYSICAL CAMERAS - Create physically-based materials with multiple layers – now with GTR/GGX shading for great looking reflections.

UNIQUE SHADERS - For specialized materials, choose from a collection of purpose-built shaders for subsurface scattering, skin, hair and more.

EFFICIENT TEXTURES - Work with multi-resolution tiled textures from top applications MARI, Mudbox and Zbrush.

HAIR & FUR - Render realistic hair with support for Maya hair and fur, XGen, Ornatrix, Shave and a Haircut, and Yeti.

VOLUMES - Render optimized volumetric effects and import OpenVDB files from Realflow and Houdini.

RENDER ELEMENTS - Output a complete set of beauty, utility, and matte passes for total control in compositing.

V-RAY FRAME BUFFER - Track render history, fine tune colors, and match final output with advanced color management.

PROXY OBJECTS - Fit massive scenes into memory and cut render times using load-on-demand proxy objects.

CLIPPER WITH RENDER-TIME BOOLEANS - Create complex cutaways and sections using any mesh object.

TRIPLANAR MAPPING - Quickly apply seamless textures without UVs.

ROUNDED CORNERS - Generate perfectly smooth edges at render-time with no extra modeling.

VIRTUAL REALITY - Render VR-ready content for popular headsets like Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear VR.

DENOISER - Automatically remove noise and cut render times by up to 50%.

ATMOSPHERIC PERSPECTIVE + NEW HOSEK SKY - Simulate natural looking skies with realistic atmospheric haze.

VRSCANS MATERIAL LIBRARY SUPPORT - 400+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray. Learn more
