V-Ray for MODO

Product Overview:

V-Ray is a rendering plug-in for Modo. In addition to supporting most standard Modo features, V-Ray supports many third-party plug-ins. V-Ray for Modo includes two renderers:

  • V-Ray, which utilizes all V-Ray's features.
  • V-Ray RT, a real-time renderer. V-Ray RT can update the rendering as you make changes to the scene. V-Ray RT renders most V-Ray and Modo features with a few exceptions.

All the V-Ray options are available within the Modo user interface, including indirect illumination and the creation of V-Ray maps, and materials. While V-Ray will render standard Modo features, the V-Ray options are designed to work with the V-Ray render engine to improve both image quality and render times.

Rendering settings for V-Ray can be found in two locations in Modo:

Additionally, V-Ray for Modo comes packaged with several standalone Rendering Tools and Utilities to assist in the rendering process.
