V-Ray 5 for Rhino

V-Ray for Rhino is the most complete visualisation tool for McNeel Rhinoceros. Now designers and architects can view their design in real-time, create renders as-real-as-can-be and apply finishing touches within the application. The unparalleled Grasshopper integration further streamlines the design development process, saving users time and improving their efficiency.

The new V-Ray Vision 3D viewer enables users to visualise scenes within a real-time rasterised environment and watch them evolve instantly as new objects, materials or lights are introduced. This new feature significantly improves efficiency in the initial design development stages where rapid experimentation is key. Feedback from managers and clients can also be applied immediately, speeding up the approvals.

Achieving photorealism is where V-Ray 5 for Rhino shines. With realistic lights and environments, real-world cameras and effects, as well as an ever-expanding library of high resolution materials and textures, any artistic vision can be turned into reality. Designers can make use of presets or tweak multiple parameters to their liking, making V-Ray suitable for users at any level.

V-Ray 5 takes users beyond rendering. The completely redesigned Frame Buffer allows for post-processing and eliminates reliance on external applications. New powerful colour correction, compositing and lighting capabilities refine final images without the need to re-render.

V-Ray 5 for Rhino, what’s new

From real time to photoreal and beyond

V-Ray 5 enables users to design in Rhino and Grasshopper like never before. With V-Ray Vision, concepts can be visualised in real-time as they develop. Scenes can be lit automatically. Photoreal renders can be post-processed without third-party applications.

Why choose V-Ray 5 for Rhino?

V-Ray enables architects and designers to:

  • Visualise designs in real real-time
  • Explore endless lighting variations automatically with the Light Gen
  • Extend magic hour with the new sun and sky system
  • Create multiple lighting scenarios from a single render without re-rendering with Light Mix
  • Post-process renders directly in V-Ray
  • Render generative geometry directly within Grasshopper
  • Save time with the improved and more-efficient material workflow
  • Make materials look more realistic with new randomness controls
  • Add more variety to scenes through new material layers

V-Ray 5 for Rhino Key Features

Rendering — With V-Ray Vision users can visualise their work in real-time. The CPU and GPU render engines can handle the most demanding projects while giving users flexibility.

  • V-Ray Vision
  • CPU rendering
  • GPU rendering
  • Denoising
  • Interactive rendering
  • Animation

Lighting — An array of natural and artificial lights can be utilised to render realistic exteriors or interiors. Smart and powerful tools speed up rendering time while users retain full creative control.

  • Light Gen tool
  • Accurate lights
  • Light Mixing
  • Image based lighting
  • Global Illumination

UI — V-Ray is part of Rhino, providing a structured asset management system and easy access to all controls and tools. Grasshopper integration allows users to complete their visualisation tasks procedurally.

  • Smart Asset Editor
  • Asset previewer
  • File manager
  • Frame buffer

Camera — With physical cameras and effects, users can work to capture the perfect exposure — just like a photographer would.

  • Real-world cameras
  • Interactive lens effects
  • VR
  • Automatic exposure & white balance

Materials & textures — Realistic texture can be added to any Rhino model by choosing from a vast library of preset materials or customising them to achieve the desired effect. Coated metal, varnished wood, velvet, satin; anything is possible.

  • Physical materials
  • Procedural textures
  • Native materials support
  • Material library
  • VRscans
  • Weathering and dirt

Atmospheric & volumetric effects — Depth can be given to exterior scenes by introducing realistic atmospheric effects and material light scattering and translucency.

  • Fog
  • Aerial perspective
  • Volumetric materials

Geometry management — There are a number of memory-efficient ways in which V-Ray can create and modify geometry objects that appear only at render time.

  • Proxy objects
  • Section cuts
  • V-Ray Scene Import & Export
  • Grass & fur

The fact that V-Ray is in Grasshopper now helps us to make all this visualisation way faster without needing very heavy files with baked geometry.
