V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max now available

1200x628

The world's most complete 3D rendering software for high-end visualization and production.


V-Ray for 3ds Max is a production-proven rendering software. Known for its versatility and ability to handle any type of project — from massive, dynamic scenes having thousands of lights to a sublime still life - it is the go-to solution for artists and designers across 3D industries.  


Award-winning rendering technology for any project.

For truly photorealistic renders, you want a raytracer that’s built for quality, optimized for speed, and ready to scale. V-Ray gives you the power to work with lightning-fast interactive and heavyweight production rendering—all while getting the most from your CPU and GPU hardware.

Built to handle your toughest scenes.
When you’re working with the biggest scene you’ve ever seen, you need a renderer that won’t let you down. Billions of polygons? Thousands of lights? V-Ray can handle it all. Render anything and everything with V-Ray. Adaptive Lights, Proxy Objects, Distributed Rendering— an arsenal of production-proven features when you need them.

Post-process your renders without the need of a separate tool.
V-Ray equips you with a complete set of lighting, shading, and rendering tools—all integrated with 3ds Max. The redesigned V-Ray Frame buffer with light mixing and layered compositing means you only need to use one tool for more than just rendering — no need to go back and forth between different apps.

Work seamlessly with other software.
V-Ray is compatible with all the most popular 3ds Max plugins — Substance, Forest Pack, Railclone, Ornatrix, Tyflow, Phoenix FD, and more. V-Ray is also the perfect fit for any pipeline with support for open standards such as Alembic, OSL, OpenColorIO, and now ACEScg.


What's new in V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max

V-Ray 5 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.

GO BEYOND RENDERING
Post-process your projects in V-Ray

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.

EXPLORE CREATIVITY WITHOUT LIMITS
Optimize your workflow

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.


AND MORE


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.

Try now. Save time, optimize your workflow, and get creative.
