V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max, what’s new?

V-Ray 5 lets you do more with your renderer than ever before. Composite renders and interactively relight your scenes in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer. Set up materials fast with new presets and over 500 ready-made shaders. V-Ray 5 helps you save time and make your renders look even better ⁠— both on the CPU or GPU.

V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max helps you go beyond rendering

Post-process your projects in V-Ray

Light Mixing: Explore lighting possibilities interactively in real-time. Use LightMix in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer to freely experiment with lighting changes after you render, save out permutations, and push back improvements you’d like to have in your scene.

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

V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max: Explore Creativity Without Limits

Optimise your workflow

Material Manager: Efficiently browse from a library of over 500 render-ready materials including metals, glass, wood and more.

Material Presets: Save time creating common materials with presets for aluminium, chrome, glass and more. Presets for most used hair colours have also been added.

Material Previews: New rendered material swatches show you exactly what your materials will look like.

Coat Layer: Add reflective coatings directly in the updated V-Ray Material, saving you both material creation and rendering time vs. using Blend material.

Sheen Layer: Create soft microfibre fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen options in the updated V-Ray Material.

Texture Randomisation: Add variety to your scene with the new VRayUVWRandomizer map and enhanced VRayMultiSubTex controls.

Stochastic Texture Tiling: Automatically remove texture tiling artefacts with the new Stochastic tiling option on the VRayUVWRandomizer.

Extended V-Ray Dirt: Weathered streaks and dirt in crevices are now easy with the enhanced V-Ray Dirt, which now employs both ambient and inner occlusion.

New Sun and Sky Model: Reproduce the subtleties of twilight when the sun is below the horizon with the new Sun and Sky model.

And More

Light Path Expressions: Use the behaviour of light, rather than just geometry, to produce flexible masks for very efficient compositing. Built-in presets make getting started easy, while scripting is there for ultimate control.

Blue-Noise Sampling: Achieve better noise distribution with fewer samples.

Native ACESCG Support: Select industry-standard ACEScg for rendering with automatic colour space adjustment for textures, dispersion, sun & sky, and light temperature colours.

Initial Out-of-Core: Initial out-of-core implementation to handle your largest scenes.

V-Ray GPU: Award-winning rendering technology for any project.

For truly photorealistic renders, you want a raytracer that’s built for quality, optimised for speed, and ready to scale. V-Ray gives you the power to work with lightning-fast interactive and heavyweight production rendering—all while getting the most from your CPU and GPU hardware (See below)

V-Ray 5 for 3dsMax

V-Ray GPU is full-featured 3D GPU rendering software that delivers fast, photorealistic results and instant feedback while you work.

Maximise your hardware. Unlike other renderers, V-Ray® GPU maximises interactive performance by using all of your GPUs and/or CPUs — and delivers identical results.

What about my CPU render farm? No problem. Take advantage of GPU speeds on your local workstation and then render on CPUs in your render farm knowing you’ll get the same quality regardless of hardware configurations.
