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.

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 future—all without needing another app.

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.

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 material library

The updated material library enables you to download remotely over 500 render-ready, high-resolution textures and materials including metals, glass, wood and more.

New layered V-Ray material

The V-Ray Material now includes built-in Coat and Sheen layers. Coat makes it easy to create materials with reflective coatings like varnished wood, and Sheen makes it easy to create fabrics like silk, satin, and velvet.

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.

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.

Add randomness for realism

To create more realistic materials, we’ve added new tools that randomize textures and colors. The VRayUVWRandomizer lets you randomize texture coordinates and includes Stochastic Tiling that automatically fixes repeating textures.

Improved Sun and Sky model

Render your scene at the perfect light of magic hour. The Improved Sun & Sky model is more accurate, with a better looking sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.

Network Rendering

Use the full computing power of your network to render single or multiple images all at once.

Advanced textures

Create realistic and unique materials using any texture map or one of V-Ray’s many built-in procedural textures.

Render Elements

Render your scene as separate passes for more artistic control in your image-editing software.

Frame Buffer

Track render history and fine-tune color, exposure, and more directly in V-Ray’s frame buffer.
