Features in version 5

  • V-Ray Vision*
    You know the real-time preview. But this is new! Visualize your designs instantly in real time, while working through SketchUp. Navigate around your model, add materials, set lamps and cameras - all in a real-time view of your scene.
    *- V-Ray Vision is currently not available for Mac, it will be added in a later version.
  • Light Mix
    Once your render is finished you can interactively change the brightness and color of each lamp - without having to render again!
  • VRayUVWRandomizer
    A clearly repeating pattern is a thing of the past because of this tool. It lets you randomize the placement of textures criss-cross and includes Stochastic Tiling.
  • Improved Sun & Sky model
    Render your scene in the perfect light! The improved Sun & Sky model is more accurate, with a better looking sunrise and sunset. Even when the sun sinks below the horizon.
  • Optimized V-Ray Core
    V-Ray 5 offers a faster and better rendering experience.
  • New software architecture
    Much faster loading and exporting of scenes thanks to the revised V-Ray backend.
  • Light Gen Tool
    Set the exposure by simply selecting one of the automatically generated thumbnails. The thumbnails have been rendered in a number of scenarios based on ambient light. Choose and you're ready to render.
  • Direct Post-Processing in V-Ray
    A new V-Ray Frame Buffer with built-in compositing, so you can make color corrections, combine render elements and save them as presets for future use - all without the need for another application.
  • New Layered V-Ray Material
    The V-Ray Material now has built-in coating and shine layers (Sheen). Coat makes it easy to create materials with reflective coatings such as varnished wood, and Sheen makes it easy to create fabrics such as silk, satin and velvet.
  • Improved contour rendering
    The general Contour control gives you more control over the line work, making it easier than ever to give your renders an illustrative look.
  • Dirt and weathering
    It's not all gold that shines... 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.
  • New documented API
    For developers who want to create or connect tools for V-Ray for SketchUp, Chaos Group has added a new, fully documented API to make it as simple as possible. 


VRscans is a library with hundreds of lifelike materials based on the physical material. The scanned materials can be used directly in your VRAY render (SketchUp, Rhino and 3D Studio). The continuously growing library includes samples of car paint, fabric, leather, plastic and much more.
