V-Ray Next for SketchUp is more than just a rendering engine. Designed to fit right within your SketchUp workflow, V-Ray Next for SketchUp gives you the added power to quickly and easily create photorealistic renders. Whether you want to show off a new model or visualise your most detailed 3D scene, V-Ray Next for SketchUp will help take your work to the Next level.


V-Ray Next for SketchUp features greatly improved workflow, making it easier and faster than ever to interact with your SketchUp scene, organise your assets, set up lighting, and render your best work. Smarter tech like 3D Scene Intelligence can now automatically analyse and optimise your renders for you, plus take advantage of many performance optimisations for both CPU and GPU rendering. What’s more, on average GPU rendering has been accelerated to be twice as fast as before.

V-Ray rendering technology is recognised by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. In 2017 V-Ray received a Sci-Tech Academy Award for its role in the widespread adoption of photorealistic ray tracing in feature film. V-Ray has been used on over 150 films, such as blockbusters Beauty and the Beast, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnorok. The same core technology used to render these films is used to power V-Ray for SketchUp.


V-Ray is also used on hit television series such as Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Stranger Things.


V-Ray is used by 92 of the top 100 architecture firms in the world.

V-Ray Next for SketchUp is immediately compatible with the new SketchUp 2020, as well as versions 2016-2019.

New Features

Viewport rendering

With new Viewport rendering, you can easily select and render multiple regions at once, and quickly blend between your V-Ray render and SketchUp model using +/- hotkeys to control opacity.

Powerful GPU rendering

Faster, more powerful GPU rendering with added support for aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows, and more.

Hybrid GPU+CPU rendering

V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.

Adaptive Lights

For scenes with lots of lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you cut render times by up to 700%.

Smart UI

The entire V-Ray for SketchUp interface is now cleaner and simpler, with better support for 4K monitors.

File manager

Manage all of your scene files in one place. Set file paths, create scene archives, and keep track of assets like textures, IES files, and proxy objects.

V-Ray Color picker

New color picker that’s simple and powerful. Select color values in Screen sRGB (0–255) or Rendering (0.0–1.0) color space.

V-Ray Scene import

Import and render V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) from other applications such as 3ds Max, Rhino, and Revit

Sunlight studies

Create sunlight & shadow studies with SketchUp sun animation.


Give your scenes depth with new realistic 3D fog and light scattering effects.

New texture maps

Fine-tune the look of your scene with new gradient, colour temperature and procedural noise texture maps.

2D displacement

Quickly add surface detail without extra modelling with optimised 2D displacement — perfect for architectural materials like brick and stone.

Animated proxy objects

Easily add pre-animated 3D objects like walking people and trees blowing in the wind with animated V-Ray proxies.

Proxy previews

Control the look of V-Ray proxies in the SketchUp viewport. Select from Whole mesh, Bounding box, Point (Origin), and the new low poly Proxy preview mode.

Better viewport materials

Get a more accurate preview of your V-Ray materials in the SketchUp viewport.

Better denoising

The V-Ray Denoiser is now easier to set up and you can refine settings even after you render.
