V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino

 

Chaos Group has launched V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino, the newest update to the high-performance rendering engine for designers. With up to 30x faster V-Ray RT performance, V-Ray Express tools and HDR Light Studio live connection with Light Paint, this release aims to promote creativity and artist-friendly workflows for Rhino users.

 

“V-Ray for Rhino has been our renderer of choice at Minimal since the day the company was formed,” says Dustin Brown, Lead Designer at MNML. “The material system is extremely powerful, lighting is quick and customizable, and network rendering works transparently within our design process, even for still images. It helps us spend more time designing and less time visualizing – and that is exactly what we want.”

 

 

New features in V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino include:

 

 

  • V-Ray RT – Interactive responses and a streamlined scene composition with GPU ray tracing up to 30 times faster from directly inside the Rhino viewport.

  • V-Ray Express – Users can easily access more than 200 materials and interchangeable lighting setups to create realistic studio scenes and illuminate models faster than ever.
