    Choose from a library of over 500 render-ready textured materials including metals, glass, wood, and more.

  • Pixel-perfect masks in the V-Ray Frame Buffer
    Make pixel-perfect adjustments to your scene without re-rendering. Use any of V-Ray's masking render elements - Cryptomatte, MultiMatte, and Object/ Render/ Material IDs - to select and fine-tune parts of your render.

  • VRayEnvironmentFog color transparency
    Chaos has added colored transparency to VRayEnvironmentFog, making specific setups, like underwater shots, easier to create, more realistic, and faster to render.

  • Opacity Cutout Conversion
    Convert opacity-mapped objects to actual geometry for faster rendering. This new feature will save time when rendering broad-leaved trees or other vegetation.

  • New V-Ray Material translucency
    Create true translucent materials with the updated V-Ray Material. Now with built-in volumetric random walk subsurface scattering, it's easier than ever to render realistic skin, plastic, wax, and more.
