Powerful rendering for compositing artists
V-Ray’s industry-standard ray-traced renderer inside NUKE’s industry-standard compositing package gives artists the best of both worlds.
Top artists and studios use V-Ray every day to render world-class imagery and visual effects.
V-Ray adds production-proven lighting, shading, and rendering capabilities to NUKE’s powerful compositing toolset.
Save time by making look development decisions on the fly, and output final frames faster by rendering directly in post-production.
V-Ray for NUKE gives you full control over lighting, shadows, reflections, and more – without the need to send it back to 3D.
V-Ray fits seamlessly into NUKE’s native node-based workflow.
