Product Overview:


With significant workflow optimizations & faster rendering, V-Ray 5 is smarter, faster and more powerful than ever.

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:

Rendering

REAL-TIME RENDERING
With V-Ray Vision*, you can visualize your designs in real-time while you work in SketchUp. Move around your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras—all in a live real-time view of your scene.
*V-Ray Vision for MacOS will be supported in an upcoming release.

CPU, GPU & HYBRID RENDERING
V-Ray comes with two powerful rendering engines. You can choose between super fast GPU and CPU or Hybrid rendering to best suit your project needs and requirements.

DENOISER
Remove noise and dramatically cut the render times. With V-Ray Denoiser, you can denoise each render element in post-production. And with the NVIDIA AI Denoiser, V-Ray delivers instant feedback with less noise, while you design interactively.

INTERACTIVE RENDERING
Render interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights and materials and see the results right away. View the render result directly in the SketchUp viewport.

RENDER ELEMENTS
Choose from many unique beauty, utility and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.

V-RAY SWARM
Powerful and scalable distributed rendering system that's simple and fast. Get an extra speed boost with V-Ray Render nodes.

CHAOS CLOUD
Rendering on the Cloud is just one click away.
