V-Ray Architecture Showreel 2022
Create any type of fluid simulation with Phoenix FD.
Launch a rocket. Sink a ship. Melt chocolate. Or pour the perfect pint. Phoenix FD is the all-in-one fluid dynamics simulation tool for artists. Create realistic fluid effects such as fire, smoke, liquids, oceans, mist and more. Fast setup, built-in presets and easy controls are here to help.
Phoenix FD is available for Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya.
INCREDIBLY FAST GPU RENDERING
Fine tune the look of your scenes in real time with the power of GPUs. Build materials, dial in cameras, and adjust lights interactively in the viewport. Switch to Production Mode when you’re ready to render final images.
Choose from several global illumination options – exact, approximate or a hybrid of both.
Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image- based lighting. With area lights, sun & sky and IES lights, you can render artistically – and accurately.
Create any type of physical material. From multilayered car paint to accurate subsurface scattering, you can make any material imaginable.
Work with production-ready, multiresolution tiled textures from your favorite applications, like MARI, Mudbox and Zbrush.
Work like a photographer. Real-world camera controls let you capture images with detailed depth of field and cinematic motion blur.
VR & SPECIALTY CAMERAS
Experience your project in virtual reality. Create content for popular VR headsets, like Samsung Gear VR, with 6x1 and spherical stereo camera types.
Render massive scenes with proxy objects. V-Ray proxies efficiently replace complex scene geometry and load only at render time.
Create unique geometry like infinite planes, metaballs and isosurfaces, particles and object cutaways with render-time booleans.
HAIR & FUR
Render realistic hair efficiently and flicker-free. V-Ray includes procedural fur, optimized hair shaders, and supports 3ds Max Hair&Fur, HairFarm and Ornatrix.
Render fog, smoke and atmospheric effects that respond correctly to light. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and PhoenixFD.
37 unique beauty, utility and matte passes give you more control over your rendered images for compositing.
V-RAY FRAME BUFFER
Review, analyze and post process your renders directly in V-Ray’s advanced frame buffer. You can be sure your images will match your final output.
