BENEFITS OF USING V-Ray for Revit
See your designs in real-time
Visualizing your Revit projects in real-time has never been easier. Now with V-Ray Vision, you can see your designs in real-time while you work in Revit. Move around your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras—all with a live real-time view of your model.
Rendering that's as real as it gets
See exactly how your project will look. With true-to-life lights, cameras, and materials, rendering with V-Ray is as real as it gets. It’s as close as you can come to the real thing before it’s built.
Bring your models to life
Choose from an array of high-quality 3D assets—including detailed models of furniture, trees, cars, and people—to bring your project to life. The all-new Chaos Cosmos asset browser lets you easily place render-ready content right into your Revit model.
What’s new with V-Ray 5 for Revit?
V-Ray 5 for Revit now includes V-Ray Vision for real-time visualization. An intuitive new Light Mix tool to simplify how you light your model. A new V-Ray Frame Buffer where you can fine-tune and finish your renders. Plus over 650 3D assets you can place in exteriors and interiors.
Real-time in V-Ray for Revit is here
With V-Ray Vision you can enjoy a realistic real-time view of your model while you work. You can walk around to get a better sense of your design and take better decisions.
Enter the Chaos Cosmos
Now, V-Ray for Revit comes with a brand new curated asset library – Chaos Cosmos, that helps you better tell your story. Easily create real-world context for your model’s interior and exterior by adding high-quality entourage from the essential categories – furniture, accessories, lighting, vegetation, vehicles and people.
Explore lighting like never before
With the new Light Mix feature, you can experiment with all the light sources in your model after you have rendered. Group your lights, tweak their brightness or change their color to find what best fits your space.
Post-process inside Revit
Our redesigned Frame Buffer comes with powerful new features that take you beyond just rendering. You don’t need a separate app for compositing or color corrections — they can be handled with V-Ray and saved as presets for future projects.
Sketch your ideas with a click
The new global Contours setting helps you give a sketch-like look to your concepts. Apply them to the whole model automatically or use them selectively to highlight certain objects.
Streamlined Proxy Material setup
We’ve simplified the proxy material assignment process with the V-Ray Asset Editor. Assign materials in the Editor once, save them along with the mesh file and you can reuse this configuration in any project.
Add realism to Revit materials
Now Displacement is not limited only to V-Ray materials — it’s an asset of its own that’s easy to apply to native materials.
Creative freedom with Sun & Sky
Studying your design’s interaction with natural light has never been easier. With more control over the sky generation parameters and access to our improved sky model, your sunrises and sunsets will never look better.
Randomize textures for realism
Use the UVW Placement asset to randomize patterns and colors of V-Ray materials as they would appear in the real world.
Coat & Sheen layers
Quickly create polished surfaces of your materials with the new Coat layer. Utilize the new Sheen layer to create realistic fabrics such as velvet, satin or silk.
Dirt & weathering
Add weathering effects to any surface of your model with the improved V-Ray Dirt texture.
Improved material library
Save time by downloading our render-ready Material library, containing over 500 high-resolution 4K textures such as glass, metal, wood and many more
