Chaos Group has launched V-Ray 2.0, its rendering engine for Rhino. The new release includes faster V-Ray RT performance, V-Ray Express tools and an HDR Light Studio live connection with Light Paint.
V-Ray RT provides interactive responses and a streamlined scene composition with GPU ray tracing up to 30 times faster from directly inside the Rhino viewport, the company says. V-Ray Material is a new compact and optimized material for V-Ray that includes parameters to adjust diffuse, reflection, and refraction.
With V-Ray Express, users can access more than 200 materials and interchangeable lighting setups to create realistic studio scenes and illuminate models. A live connection to HDR Light Studio with Light Paint can be accessed directly within Rhino.
“Our focus on full integration makes sure our customers never lose precious work hours to inefficiency,” says Corey Rubadue, product manager at Chaos Group. “Our commitment to the design community is unwavering, and we believe the faster speeds, easy controls and access to content will only accelerate their projects and products.”
