Sophisticated physically-based rendering seamlessly integrated into Cinema 4D
Optimized for both CPUs and GPUs, V-Ray for Cinema 4D allows 3D artists and designers to render unsurpassed quality, quickly, even when working with complicated 3D projects.
V-Ray for Cinema 4D includes a full-featured tool with lighting, shading and rendering, giving artists ultimate creative control over the whole process, from real-time look development to the last frame.
Now Supports Cinema 4D R21!
V-Ray is today one of highest render quality tools available for production. It is widely used by professional CG artists and visualizations firms worldwide. Its proven, beautiful and super realistic image quality, at unsurpassed render speed, attracts many users from all areas. V-Ray for Cinema 4D is the Cinema4D native incarnation of this great engine. It enables you to use V-Ray directly within Cinema4D using the typical C4D like workflow. V-Ray is the de-facto standard in architecture & design visualization, car rendering, TV commercials, and many more areas, like in recent Hollywood Movies like 3D Blockbuster AVATAR. Its good, its fast, its stable!

GPU + CPU RENDERING
Optimized CPU rendering in V-Ray for Cinema 4D provides all-new speeds, plus enjoy blazing-fast GPU rendering for previews and final-frame renders. V-Ray’s feature-full production toolset delivers high-quality, physically accurate images and animation.
V-Ray’s automated sampling with variance-based adaptive ray-tracing offers dramatically improved workflow and eliminates the need for fine-tuning complex settings. Just choose the GI engine type, render time — and render! And enjoy the instant feedback via V-Ray’s progressive rendering.
ACCURATE LIGHTING & GLOBAL ILLUMINATION
V-Ray uses physically accurate ray tracing to precisely calculate lights and real-world reflected lights and global illumination. Choose from precise path tracing, approximate — or use a hybrid of both.
PHYSICALLY BASED MATERIALS
V-Ray for Cinema 4D offers real-world and multi-layered BRDFs for the creation of physically accurate materials. V-Ray’s special BRFD materials give you access to all the tools you could need.
V-Ray’s real-world camera system lets artists work like photographers to achieve realistic depth-of-field and cinematic motion blur. You can also output to virtual reality with the VR 360 stereo camera.
NEW UV MANAGER & TRIPLANAR MAPPING
The new UV manager brings UV channels to Cinema 4D, allowing artists to use unlimited UVs per shader for complete UV-mapping control. Or, use Triplanar mapping for texturing without UVs.
POWERFUL PROXY OBJECTS & INSTANCING
V-Ray Proxy objects replace complex scene geometry and load only at render time. And for added realism, you can add random material variations to V-Ray Proxy objects and render instances.
NEW SKY MODELS & FASTER VOLUME RENDERING
V-Ray offers several sky models for the realistic lighting of scenes — including Hosek sky with atmospheric haze. Volumetric environment fog now renders even faster to help you quickly generate clouds, volume lights and more.
MAXON HAIR, FUR & GRASS SUPPORT
V-Ray for Cinema 4D supports Maxon Hair via V-Ray’s memory-efficient hair procedurals, as well as V-RayFur. The V-Ray Hair BRDF also provides physically accurate hair shading for great-looking results.
NEW VFB: LUT CONTROL, DENOISER & LENS EFFECTS
The advanced V-Ray Frame Buffer offers high-level tools including color correction, exposure, white balance, LUT support, V-Ray Lens Effects and the VRayDenoiser, and is available on both Windows and MacOS.
REAL-TIME CLIPPER & RENDER-TIME BOOLEANS
V-Ray boasts a real-time clipper allowing you to cut geometry — even proxies, multiple times — and offers an option to use custom geometry for Booleans. Architectural section renderings are now a breeze!
EXTENDED RENDER ELEMENTS & ID PASSES
V-Ray offers an extensive set of render elements and object/material ID selection channels via its multipass feature for professional post-production pipelines. Rendering lights on separate layers is also supported.
V-RAY DISTRIBUTED RENDERING
With V-Ray’s Distributed Rendering, you can use the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.
