V-Ray Next for 3ds Max, Update 2 Now available!

The Next Generation of Rendering is here! V-Ray Next Scene Intelligence delivers faster ray tracing, cleaner sampling, and more accurate rendering. That means you work smarter — not harder — by automating steps that used to take up valuable time.

WHAT’S NEW?

WORKFLOW OPTIMIZATIONS

IPR updates, Debug Shading, and a new Memory Tracking report to save time and optimize your scenes.

  • Debug shading. Easily isolate textures, materials, and geometry to help debug large shading networks in V-Ray IPR and V-Ray GPU IPR.
  • Color corrections in viewport IPR. Apply V-Ray Frame Buffer color corrections directly in the Viewport IPR.
  • Memory tracking. Optimize your scene with the new memory usage report for textures and objects.

V-RAY GPU BOOST

Boost your render time with the popular alSurface shader for skin and VRayDistanceTex map.

  • V-Ray GPU support for alSurface material. A general purpose shader with layered SSS and glossy fresnel reflections on V-Ray GPU.
  • V-Ray GPU support for VRayDistanceTex. Faster setup of your scene’s shaders and render effects based on geometry with V-Ray GPU.

SMARTER EFFECTS

Spice up your projects with cel-shading effects or take advantage of the new lens effects to simulate real-world camera styles.

  • V-Ray Toon Shader. Quickly add cartoon and cel-shading effects to your 3D projects.
  • Dust and Scratches lens effect. Simulate real-world camera lens effects with new procedurally generated Dust and Scratches.
