GPU + CPU Rendering
Optimised CPU rendering in V-Ray for Cinema 4D provides all-new speeds, plus enjoy blazing-fast GPU rendering for previews and final-frame renders. V-Ray’s feature-full production toolset delivers high-quality, physically accurate images and animation.
V-Ray’s automated sampling with variance-based adaptive ray-tracing offers dramatically improved workflow and eliminates the need for fine-tuning complex settings. Just choose the GI engine type, render time — and render! And enjoy the instant feedback via V-Ray’s progressive rendering.
Accurate Lighting & Global Illumination
V-Ray uses physically accurate ray tracing to precisely calculate lights and real-world reflected lights and global illumination. Choose from precise path tracing, approximate — or use a hybrid of both.
Physically Based Materials
V-Ray for Cinema 4D offers real-world and multi-layered BRDFs for the creation of physically accurate materials. V-Ray’s special BRFD materials give you access to all the tools you could need.
V-Ray’s real-world camera system lets artists work like photographers to achieve realistic depth-of-field and cinematic motion blur. You can also output to virtual reality with the VR 360 stereo camera.
New UV Manager & Triplanar
The new UV manager brings UV channels to Cinema 4D, allowing artists to use unlimited UVs per shader for complete UV-mapping control. Or, use Triplanar mapping for texturing without UVs.
Powerful Proxy Objects & Instancing
V-Ray Proxy objects replace complex scene geometry and load only at render time. And for added realism, you can add random material variations to V-Ray Proxy objects and render instances.
New Sky Models & Faster Volume Rendering
V-Ray offers several sky models for the realistic lighting of scenes — including Hosek sky with atmospheric haze. Volumetric environment fog now renders even faster to help you quickly generate clouds, volume lights and more
Maxon Hair, Fur & Grass Support
V-Ray for Cinema 4D supports Maxon Hair via V-Ray’s memory-efficient hair procedurals, as well as V-RayFur. The V-Ray Hair BRDF also provides physically accurate hair shading for great-looking results.
New Vfb: Lut Control, Denoiser & Lens Effects
The advanced V-Ray Frame Buffer offers high-level tools including color correction, exposure, white balance, LUT support, V-Ray Lens Effects and the VRayDenoiser, and is available on both Windows and MacOS.
Real-Time Clipper & Render-Time Booleans
V-Ray boasts a real-time clipper allowing you to cut geometry — even proxies, multiple times — and offers an option to use custom geometry for Booleans. Architectural section renderings are now a breeze!
Extended Render Elements & Id Passes
V-Ray offers an extensive set of render elements and object/material ID selection channels via its multipass feature for professional post-production pipelines. Rendering lights on separate layers is also supported.
V-Ray Distributed Rendering
With V-Ray’s Distributed Rendering, you can use the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.
