The beta, known as Project Lavina, was released earlier this year.
Chaos Vantage Features
Drag and drop your V-Ray scene into Chaos Vantage and start exploring. Unlike other real-time solutions, there’s no geometry to optimize, UVs to unwrap, or lighting to bake.
Chaos Vantage is built to handle huge scenes and billions of polygons. It’s the fastest way for you to see your most detailed V-Ray scenes in real-time.
Easy to navigate.
Navigating your scene is easy. Use controls similar to your 3D app, or move around just like playing a game. Walk up stairs and avoid walking through walls with automatic collision detection.
100% ray-traced quality.
With fully raytraced and real-time rendering, Chaos Vantage uses physically-based cameras, lights, materials, and global illumination for the most realistic results.
Simple and fast animation.
Perfect for previsualization, you can create, edit, and render animation right from Chaos Vantage. Easily animate between cameras, apply transitions, arrange your sequence in the Animation Editor.
Get a live raytraced view of your scene with a live link from 3ds Max. Changes you make in your 3ds Max scene will instantly appear in Chaos Vantage.
