What is V-Ray?

Chaos® V-Ray® is a 3D rendering plugin available for all major 3D design and CAD programs. It works seamlessly with 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, Houdini, Maya, Nuke, Revit, Rhino, SketchUp, and Unreal.

With V-Ray, artists and designers can explore and share their projects and render high-quality 3D visualizations.

V-Ray has a large community of users and is recognized for its incredible versatility. V-Ray has been honored with a Sci-Tech Academy Award® and an Engineering Emmy Award® for bringing fully ray-traced photorealistic CGI to the film and television industries.

Photorealistic ray-traced rendering.

V-Ray differs from other rendering solutions in that it includes both CPU and GPU+CPU hybrid rendering options. V-Ray renderer uses adaptive ray tracing technology and proprietary scene intelligence to create photorealistic imagery and animations. It accurately calculates the distribution of light as well as the physical properties of any material.

Industry-leading 3D rendering software.

Trusted by 92 of the top 100 number architecture firms, and integrated into the pipelines of the biggest film and visual effects companies, V-Ray is built to handle the toughest scenes and biggest projects.
