NVIDIA® Iray is a highly interactive and intuitive physically based rendering technology that generates photorealistic imagery by simulating the physical behavior of light and materials. Unlike traditional production renderers, Iray delivers results reflecting real-world behaviors. Designers don't need expert knowledge of computer graphics techniques to quickly achieve photorealistic results.
Iray progressively refines its image until completion, providing consistent results from interactive editing to final frame. It's a highly predictive approach that marries with the scalable, world-class performance across NVIDIA GPUs to give constant feedback and rapid results. This slashes the time needed to perfect scenes and deliver images rivaling photographs.
Who is Iray for?
Iray is primarily for designers and visual effects artists working with 3D content who require predictable photorealistic imagery. It delivers immediate visual feedback that results in stunning imagery for everything from architecture, engineering, and design to marketing and advertising visual effects.
NVIDIA continually evolves Iray's feature set to improve the physically- based 3D and VR-rendering workflows of designers and digital artists.
- Physically-Based Lighting
Iray is a high-performance, global illumination rendering technology that generates imagery by simulating the physical behavior of light interaction with surfaces and volumes. Images are progressively refined to provide full global illumination—including caustics, sun studies, and luminance distributions.
- Iray and VR
VR support within Iray ranges from panoramic snapshots to fully immersive Iray VR experiences. VR snapshots are created with spherical lenses that are actually just one of the many new physical & industry lenses available to use from any Iray camera location. Iray VR produces an immersive photorealistic world that you can walk about using a head-mounted display(HMD) to examine your scene from every vantage point. Iray VR will soon be available to any Iray solution that can send a job to a NVIDIA Quadro® VCA or a DGX-1™.
- Interactive 3D Rendering
Iray is built for interactivity and delivers immediate visual feedback throughout the entire design process. The Iray interactive rendering mode uses advanced approximation algorithms to mimic realism while minimizing unwanted noise. This maximizes performance during interaction.
- Physically-Based Materials
NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL) defines the properties of materials for Iray. These range from the color of surfaces to their reflection or refraction properties, light emission of surfaces, and scattering and absorption properties of volumes. They even include additional geometric properties of surfaces—such as cut-outs, displacements, or bump maps—that are commonly not modeled in the primary geometric description.
New in Iray 2015 is support for measured materials using the X-Rite Appearance Exchange Format (AxF). Plus, it offers the MDL's fully programmable support for procedurally generated textures and functions with full GPU acceleration.
- Light Path Expressions (LPE)
Iray offers compositing elements that isolate lighting components using a technique called Light Path Expressions that are rendered in parallel and saved to output buffers. LPEs can be defined on a per object and per light basis, allowing for complete creative control in post using standard imaging or compositing software.
