New V-Ray 3.3 for Maya boasts major speed enhancements
Chaos Group has announced a new version of V-Ray for Maya that includes a broad sprinkling of new features and enhancements. The foremost of these is a focus on rendering speed, with a typical 20-50% boost over previous versions of V-Ray, rendering the same scene. At the same time, Chaos Group has rebuilt its image sampler with a new “Variance-based Adaptive Sampler” that is the best yet to detect noise and sample noisy areas efficiently. It also automatically evaluates and samples lights and materials for a consistent noise quality throughout your rendering.
