V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp — Now Available!



Product Overview:


SketchUp® users in all fields depend on V-Ray® as a quick, easy and cost- efficient way to render their most cutting-edge images. Developed by the Chaos Group, V-Ray for SketchUp works with Trimble’s SketchUp, one of the most popular 3D modeling tools available today. V-Ray 3 for SketchUp is a brand new rendering experience redesigned from the ground up. The new user interface is clean and simple. With quick presets and streamlined controls you can focus on being creative, without worrying about the technical stuff.

New Features


V-Ray for SketchUp has a rich set of features, making high quality visualization fast and easy. Here are some of the new features:

VIEWPORT RENDERING - With new Viewport rendering, you can easily select and render multiple regions at once, and quickly blend between your V-Ray render and SketchUp model using +/- hotkeys to control opacity.

POWERFUL GPU RENDERING - Faster, more powerful GPU rendering with added support for aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows, and more.

HYBRID GPU+CPU RENDERING - V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.

ADAPTIVE LIGHTS - For scenes with lots of lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you cut render times by up to 700%.

SMART UI - The entire V-Ray for SketchUp interface is now cleaner and simpler, with better support for 4K monitors.

FILE MANAGER - Manage all of your scene files in one place. Set file paths, create scene archives, and keep track of assets like textures, IES files, and proxy objects.

V-RAY COLOR PICKER - New color picker that’s simple and powerful. Select color values in Screen sRGB (0–255) or Rendering (0.0–1.0) color space.

SUNLIGHT STUDIES - Create sunlight & shadow studies with SketchUp sun animation.

FOG - Give your scenes depth with new realistic 3D fog and light scattering effects.

NEW TEXTURE MAPS - Fine-tune the look of your scene with new gradient, color temperature and procedural noise texture maps.

2D DISPLACEMENT - Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling with optimized 2D displacement — perfect for architectural materials like brick and stone.

ANIMATED PROXY OBJECTS - Easily add pre-animated 3D objects like walking people and trees blowing in the wind with animated V-Ray proxies.

PROXY PREVIEWS - Control the look of V-Ray proxies in the SketchUp viewport. Select from Whole mesh, Bounding box, Point (Origin), and the new low poly Proxy preview mode.

BETTER VIEWPORT MATERIALS - Get a more accurate preview of your V-Ray materials in the SketchUp viewport.

BETTER DENOISING - The V-Ray Denoiser is now easier to set up and you can refine settings even after you render.
