V-Ray 5 for C4D is here!

Updated: Nov 25, 2021

We’re happy to share that Chaos Group just released V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D beta. It comes with built-in compositing, interactive light mixing, dozens of new features and more. V-Ray 5 is a whole new rendering experience that's coming soon to Cinema 4D.

Check out the Key Features below:

Tools that take you beyond rendering Fine-tune and finish your renders right in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer. No other apps needed.

  • BUILT-IN COMPOSITING The new layer-based compositor allows you to combine render passes, set blending modes, and adjust colors without going to a separate app.

  • LIGHT MIX Now from a single render, you can create dozens of lighting scenarios. Change the color and intensity of lights in real-time without having to render again.

Render faster than ever

  • GPU + CPU RENDERING Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.

  • GPU PRODUCTION RENDERING Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU. Now even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.

  • FAST INTERACTIVE RENDERING Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.

Let V-Ray do the work for you Take advantage of tools that help you work smarter, not harder.

  • AUTO EXPOSURE AND WHITE BALANCE The V-Ray Camera can automatically set exposure and white balance for you, so you don't have to do it manually.

  • AI DENOISING The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence that instantly reduces noise while you render.

Get creative, stay creative

Expand your creative toolkit with all the right tools for the job.

  • COAT LAYER Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It's faster to set up and faster to render than a blend material.

  • SHEEN LAYER Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin, and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.

  • METALNESS Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.

  • CAR PAINT 2 MATERIAL Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.

  • IMPROVED V-RAY DIRT Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.

  • NEW SUN AND SKY MODEL Capture the light of magic hour. The improved Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.

Fewer settings, more creative control With a new look and feel, V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D is easier than ever.

  • LIGHTS Lights are now much simpler to set up with a significantly improved user interface.

  • RENDER, MATERIAL AND CAMERA SETTINGS Improved UI settings and new dynamic parameters can help you cut set up time in half.

  • RENDER ELEMENTS Easily manage and arrange render elements by grouping them into folders with a simple drag and drop.


  • LIGHT PATH EXPRESSIONS For the ultimate control in compositing, you can create your own render passes with Light Path Expressions.

  • BLUE-NOISE SAMPLING See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you'll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.

  • OUT-OF-CORE GPU RENDERING This initial implementation of out-of-core rendering can help you render scenes that are larger than the memory of your GPU.
