V-Ray for 3ds Max is an Academy Award-winning, production-proven rendering software. Known for its versatility and ability
to handle any type of project, V-Ray is considered an industry-standard in architecture, advertising, design, and visual effects.
V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max is the most complete 3D rendering software for artists and designers. V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max’s modern and efficient material library workflow, faster look-development with material presets, and flexible post-processing features can save users time, take them beyond just rendering and help them focus on artistic exploration — from a single creation tool.
Explore lighting possibilities interactively in real-time. Use LightMix in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer to freely experiment with lighting changes after you render, save out permutations, and push back improvements you’d like to have in your scene.
The new Layer compositor lets you fine-tune and finish your images directly in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer — without the need for a separate post-processing app.
Efficiently browse from a library of over 500 render-ready materials
including metals, glass, wood, and more.
Save time creating common materials with presets for aluminum, chrome, glass, and more. Presets for most used hair colors have also been added.
New rendered material swatches show you exactly what your materials will look like.
Add reflective coatings directly in the updated V-Ray Material, saving you both material creation and rendering time vs. using Blend material.
Create soft microfiber fabrics like velvet, satin, and silk with the new Sheen options in the updated V-Ray Material.
Add variety to your scene with the new VRayUVWRandomizer map and enhanced VRayMultiSubTex controls.
Automatically remove texture tiling artifacts with the new Stochastic tiling option on the VRayUVWRandomizer.
Weathered streaks and dirt in crevices are easy with the enhanced V-Ray Dirt, which now employs both ambient and inner occlusion.
Reproduce the subtleties of twilight when the sun is below the horizon with the new Sun and Sky model.

In my previous blog, we saw how we could use Project Boulder for Infraworks 360 to simulate a storm surge similar to the one experienced during Hurricane Sandy and observe its effects on Lower Manhattan. What if we now wanted to start conceptualizing ideas for designing a system to protect the areas most affected by the storm surge? How would we approach that design process and how could we communicate it effectively?
