V-Ray 6 for SketchUp & V-Ray 6 for Rhino — beta programs live

Join the beta and discover the most powerful visualization workflow for AEC. Seamlessly transfer Enscape scenes into V-Ray and quickly add intricate detail.



Your sneak peek at V-Ray 6

The V-Ray 6 for SketchUp and V-Ray 6 for Rhino releases are coming soon, but you can join our beta program to try it before anyone else and help us fine-tune the software. You’ll be able to seamlessly bring your real-time Enscape scenes into V-Ray and continue creating at the highest possible level of photorealism.

Plus, V-Ray 6 is packed with new tools and features, including the ability to create complex patterns, cloudy skies, realistic materials quickly and easily — and lots more.



Here’s what to expect from the beta:


V-Ray & Enscape compatibility

Introducing the most powerful visualization workflow in the AEC industry. With V-Ray 6, it’s simple to transfer real-time scenes from Enscape and continue building on work to take it to the highest possible level of photorealism.

With support for Enscape materials, 3D models, and lights, V-Ray ensures that all design decisions are kept throughout the project development stages, and collaboration between designers and visualization specialists goes as smoothly as ever before.

No dead ends. No starting over. A seamless end-to-end design process.


Streamline your workflow

  • Procedural clouds Add just the right clouds for any scene without spending hours browsing through HDRI libraries. The new procedural cloud system is a flexible and memory-efficient way to create any cloudy sky and animate it for impressive timelapse presentations.

  • V-Ray Enmesh Create complex geometric patterns over object surfaces to make panels, fences, fabrics, and more in an automated and memory-efficient way.

  • Finite Dome light Fine-tune the scale and add depth to the environment of projects when using image-based lighting with this new V-Ray Dome Light mode.


Enhanced Material Creation

  • Distance Texture Vary effects, such as displacement or procedural fur, are based on proximity to create a realistic correlation between the elements in a composition. Create a well-trodden path through a procedural lawn or form dark spots under downspouts.

  • Enhanced Dirt texture Place dirt with higher precision by adding or excluding objects.

  • Better translucent materials Render translucent materials like frosted glass or marble faster with the V-Ray Material’s improved subsurface scattering mode.

  • Iridescent materials Easily create iridescent materials such as soap bubbles, oil spills, and more with the new Thin Film option available in the V-Ray Material.

  • More accurate reflections Metals and rough reflective materials render more accurately thanks to a new energy preservation technique.


Other

  • Pause your renders Pause and resume renders at any time.

  • Asset tags Group assets using the new tags system in the Asset Editor to improve scene organization in complex projects.

  • All assets inside Chaos Cosmos V-Ray’s built-in material library is now part of Chaos Cosmos, so it’s easy to find and manage all assets in a single location.

  • ACEScg Color Management Take advantage of a wider color palette for render output with the industry-standard ACEScg color encoding system.
