V-Ray NEXT for 3ds Max

Introducing the next generation of rendering.

V-Ray Next Scene Intelligence delivers faster ray tracing, cleaner sampling and more accurate rendering. That means you work smarter — not harder — by automating steps that used to take up valuable time.

Key Features

New in V-Ray NEXT for 3ds Max:

POWERFUL SCENE INTELLIGENCE - Automatically analyzes your scene to optimize rendering — so you get the best quality in less time. See Adaptive Dome Light and Automatic Camera Exposure.

ADAPTIVE DOME LIGHT - Faster, cleaner and more accurate image-based environment lighting. Up to 7x faster than before.

POINT & SHOOT CAMERA - Perfect renders are as easy as taking a snapshot with new Automatic Exposure & White Balance.

2X FASTER GPU RENDERING - Fast new GPU rendering architecture with support for more of your favorite high-end production features.

GPU VOLUME RENDERING - V-Ray GPU now supports blazing fast rendering of volumetric effects like smoke, fire and fog.

NVIDIA AI DENOISER - Instantly remove noise while rendering. Based on AI-accelerated denoising technology by NVIDIA.

LIGHTING ANALYSIS - Accurately measure the light levels in your scene using new lighting analysis tools.

PHYSICAL HAIR MATERIAL - Render more realistic-looking hair with accurate highlights and melanin color controls.

V-RAY SWITCH MATERIAL - Apply several materials to the same object and select the one you want at render time.

V-RAY PLUGIN MATERIAL & TEXTURE - Load any texture or material that’s available in V-Ray Standalone and render it in V-Ray Next.

DENOISED RENDER ELEMENTS - Denoise individual render elements for added control in compositing. Supports animation.

LAYERED ALEMBIC WORKFLOWS - Supports Alembic 1.7 and layers for efficient handling and updating of Alembic data.

NEW V-RAY SDK - V-Ray's core rendering engine has been optimized for extra speed and added flexibility.

LOCALIZED TOOLTIPS - Tooltips are now in multiple languages: Japanese, Korean, Russian, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

CLOUD-READY - New utility checks your scene to see if it's ready to render on the cloud with Linux and V-Ray Standalone.
