Upgrade to V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max

Update to V-Ray 5 gives you full access to new and improved features. V-Ray for 3ds Max is an Academy Award-winning, industry-standard, production-proven rendering software. Known for its

versatility and ability to handle any type of project — from scenes with massive geometry and many lights to a single building

or simple interiors — V-Ray is preferred by many 3D artists. It is used by 95% of the top AEC firms worldwide and in countless

films.

V-Ray’s modern and efficient material library workflow, faster look-development with material presets, and flexible post processing features can save users time, take them beyond just rendering and help them focus on artistic exploration — from

a single creation tool.

V-Ray for 3ds Max is the world’s most complete 3D rendering software for high-end visualization and production

What's New in V-Ray 5

LIGHT MIX

Explore different lighting options from a single render. Interactively adjust lights, without re-rendering with the LightMix render element.

LAYERED COMPOSITING

The new Layer compositor lets you fine-tune your images directly in the V-Ray Frame Buffer — without the need for a separate post-processing app.

EXTRA COMPOSITING CONTROL

Output any lighting contributions with Light Path Expressions for fine-grained control in compositing. Use boolean operations to easily combine LPEs, or quick start with built-in presets.

FASTER V-RAY PROXY WORKFLOW

Improve viewport and render speed with the new VRay Proxy node - а simplified single geometry node structure with easy-to-use, rule-based material and visibility assignments.

ACESCG COLOR SPACE

Select industry-standard ACEScg for rendering with automatic color space adjustment for textures, dispersion, sun & sky, and light temperature colors.

ENHANCED GPU RENDERING

Power up your renders with all-new GPU features, including 2D displacement, support for OSL textures, memory tracking and initial out-of-core implementation to handle your largest scenes.

COAT LAYER

Add reflective coatings directly in V-Ray Material so you can render faster and more efficiently than using a blend material.

SHEEN LAYER

Render soft microfiber fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with new Sheen options in the V-Ray Material.

NEW SUN AND SKY MODEL

A new Sun & Sky analytical model dramatically improves lighting at sunrise and sunset.

BLUE-NOISE SAMPLING

Achieve better noise distribution with fewer samples.

MATERIAL PRESETS

Save time setting up 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.

TEXTURE RANDOMIZATION

Add variety to your scene with the new VRayUVWRandomizer map or the new enhanced VRayMultiSubTex controls.

STOCHASTIC TEXTURE TILING

Automatically remove texture tiling artifacts with the new Stochastic tiling option on the VRayUVWRandomizer.
