See what’s new in V-Ray 3.6 for Rhino
MORE POWERFUL GPU RENDERING: Faster, more powerful GPU rendering adds support for on-demand mip-mapping, aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows and more.
HYBRID GPU+CPU RENDERING: Now V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including both GPUs and CPUs.
ADAPTIVE LIGHTS: In scenes with many lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you speed up render times by up to 700%.
LIGHT INSTANCES: Lights can now be instanced and controlled as a single light in the Asset Editor.
STREAMLINED UI: The entire V-Ray for Rhino interface has been updated and streamlined for a more intuitive, user-friendly workflow.
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 COLOUR PICKER: New colour picker allows you to select colour values in Screen sRGB (0–255) or Rendering (0.0–1.0) colour space.
V-RAY SCENE IMPORT: Import and render V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) from other applications such as 3ds Max, Revit, and SketchUp.
FOG: 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 modeling using the new optimized 2D displacement. It’s 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 Rhino viewport. Select from Whole mesh, Bounding box, Point (Origin), Custom preview, and a new low poly Proxy preview mode.
IMPROVED DENOISING: The V-Ray Denoiser is now easier to set up and you can refine settings even after you render.
ANIMATIONS: V-Ray 3.6 for Rhino introduces a new simplified workflow for rendering light studies, turntables and fly-through animations.
V-RAY FOR GRASSHOPPER: V-Ray for Grasshopper is now quicker and simpler with new preset lighting and material setups. Grasshopper objects can be rendered directly as part of the Rhino scene without baking geometry.
