To bring a V-Ray scene into Unreal is simple.

Create the scene the same way you normally do using V-Ray for 3ds Max, Maya and SketchUp. Then, export a V-Ray scene from your host application and import it using V-Ray for Unreal.

That’s it, you’re in — without needing to be a game engine expert.

V-Ray for Unreal smart translation

When you import your scene, V-Ray for Unreal automatically converts your materials and lights into real-time equivalents for UE workflows.

At the same time, your original materials from V-Ray for 3ds Max, Maya and SketchUp remain connected to their real-time versions and are called up when you're ready to render.

V-Ray for Unreal photorealistic rendering

When you render with V-Ray for Unreal, you get the exact same photorealistic quality that V-Ray is known for.

V-Ray taps into the full combined power of your GPUs and CPUs for ultrafast ray tracing.

V-Ray for Unreal gateway to VR

Once your V-Ray scene is imported, you'll be ready to take full advantage of the VR capabilities in the Unreal Editor.

V-Ray for Unreal makes it fast and easy to create high quality, immersive VR.
