Great news for all V-Ray users — Chaos Group has just released V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D. This first in-house developed version of their rendering plugin includes many new features from both V-Ray 5 and V-Ray Next, making this release essentially two upgrades of V-Ray for Cinema 4D in one.
V-Ray 5’s built-in compositing and interactive light mixing enable users to fine-tune and finish their renders without having to re-render or go to a separate app. For fast interactive rendering and final production rendering, V-Ray can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both. With V-Ray’s distributed rendering, users can render faster using multiple machines. Render jobs can also be sent directly to Chaos Cloud, Chaos Group’s cloud rendering service. Users can now take advantage of V-Ray tools that help them work smarter. This includes automatic camera exposure and white balance, instant AI-driven noise reduction, and much more.
Professional 3D rendering software for Cinema 4D artists and designers
V-Ray for Cinema 4D puts industry-standard technology for photorealistic 3D rendering into the hands of Cinema 4D artists and designers. With smart tools and powerful rendering capabilities, V-Ray’s combination of speed and creative control is perfect for any project.
Bring ideas to life
With V-Ray’s complete set of lighting, shading, and award-winning rendering tools, you can bring any idea to life.
Built to handle it all
Built to handle your biggest projects, including scenes with massive amounts of geometry and thousands of lights.
Get the job done with ease
Artist-friendly tools and an intuitive interface help you work smarter, making it easy to get the job done.
V-Ray’s GPU and CPU rendering capabilities bring a speed boost to any production. With fast interactive rendering, you’ll see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.
Ready to scale
Harness the power of multiple computers to render high-resolution images with V-Ray’s distributed rendering. Or take your rendering to the cloud with direct access to Chaos Cloud.
Go beyond rendering
V-Ray 5 is more than a renderer. Built-in compositing and interactive light mixing let you fine-tune and finish your renders in the V-Ray Frame Buffer without going to a separate app.
GPU + CPU rendering
Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray, you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.
GPU production rendering
Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU. Now even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.
Fast interactive rendering
Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.
Easily harness the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.
Render stills and animations alike in the cloud, at the push of a button — now with full support for Chaos Cloud, our cloud rendering service.
Render realistic fog, smoke and atmospheric effects. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and Phoenix FD.
Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It’s faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.
Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.
Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.
Car Paint 2 Material
Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.
Improved V-Ray Dirt
Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.
Physical Hair Material
Achieve more realistic results with the new physically accurate V-Ray Hair Material.
New Sun and Sky Model
Capture the light of magic hour. The new Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.
Add variety to your scenes by randomizing colors and textures with V-Ray MultiSub Texture.
VRscans Material Library Support
Get access to a library of over 1,000 unbelievably real materials — a great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations.
Native Support for Cinema 4D Noises
Enhance your renderings with different noise patterns and detailed surfaces. Now with less memory consumption.
Light Path Expressions
For the ultimate control in compositing, you can create your own render passes with Light Path Expressions.
See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you’ll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.
Out-of-core GPU Rendering
This initial implementation of out-of-core rendering can help you render scenes that are larger than the memory of your GPU.
