V-Ray for 3ds Max
Chaos Group releases V-Ray 3.6 for 3ds Max, an update to its leading renderer that introduces new hybrid rendering technology, improved compositing output, and compatibility with Autodesk 3ds Max 2018.
V-Ray’s new hybrid rendering technology adds CPU support to its NVIDIA CUDA-powered GPU renderer. Now, with V-Ray Hybrid artists will have greater flexibility to render a scene using GPUs, CPUs or a combination of both. The rendered images will be identical, regardless of hardware. This allows artists to use any and all hardware, from high-powered GPU workstations to CPU render nodes.
Full Light Select Render Element – Render individual lights or groups of lights as separate render elements, with full support for global illumination, reflections and refractions for accurate light mixing in post.
Cryptomatte – Automatically generate ID mattes with support for transparency, depth of field and motion blur. This will speed up workflows for compositors working in Nuke or Fusion
NVIDIA NVLink – Supports shared GPU memory across NVLink compatible graphics cards
V-Ray for Maya
Production-proven CPU & GPU rendering for animation and visual effects for film, television and virtual reality. V-Ray 3.6 for Maya adds hybrid rendering, improved compositing output, and support for Maya 2018.
V-Ray’s new hybrid rendering technology adds CPU support to its NVIDIA CUDA-powered GPU renderer. V-Ray Hybrid maximizes your computing power by rendering on GPUs, CPUs or a combination of both and the rendered images will be identical, regardless of hardware.
Better Compositing- With an improved Light Select Render Element in V-Ray 3.6, you can now render the full contribution of any light, or group of lights, including global illumination, reflections and refractions for easy mixing in post.
Cryptomatte automatically generates ID mattes with support for transparency, depth of field and motion blur. If you’re composting in NUKE or Fusion, Cryptomatte is a great time-saver.
V-Ray 3.6 for Maya is a free update for all V-Ray 3.x customers.
