Latest Features

Go beyond rendering. V-Ray 5 for SketchUp lets you do more in your renderer than ever before. See your designs in real-time with V-Ray Vision. Light scenes automatically with Light Gen. Relight your renders instantly with Light Mix. And fine-tune and finish your images without a separate app.

  • V-Ray Vision
    Now with V-Ray Vision* you can visualize your designs in real-time while you work in SketchUp. Move around your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras - all in a live real-time view of your scene. And when you're ready for photo quality renders, V-Ray is ready to go. With V-Ray Vision you can:
    • Explore your designs in real-time
    • Produce images from multiple camera angles
    • Create 360 panoramas
    • Render animations in real-time
    (*V-Ray Vision for MacOS will be supported in an upcoming release.)

  • Lighting Made Easy
    Adjust the lights in your scene even after you render. With Light Mix, once your scene is rendered, you can interactively adjust the brightness and color of any light without having to render again

  • Post-Process Your Renders Right In V-Ray
    V-Ray 5 features a new V-Ray Frame Buffer. With built-in compositing, you can make color corrections, combine render elements, and save them as presets to be used in the future - all without needing another app.

  • See Your Designs In Their Best Light
    Light Gen is a new V-Ray tool that automatically generates thumbnails of your SketchUp scene each one presenting a unique lighting scenario. Choose your favorite look and you're ready to render.

  • Improved Contour Rendering
    The global Contours control gives you more control over linework, making it easier than ever to give your renders an illustrative look.

  • Dirt And Weathering
    Give your SketchUp models a weathered look with the improved V-Ray Dirt texture. Add dirt and streaks anywhere - in corners or across entire surfaces.

  • V-Ray Core
    Optimized V-Ray core and improved V-Ray GPU for an even faster and more stable rendering experience.

  • New Software Architecture
    Much faster scene loading and scene export thanks to the newly refactored V-Ray backend.
