V-Ray 5 for Rhino
The all-in-one visualization solution for Rhino and Grasshopper.
V-Ray for Rhino is a 3D rendering software that combines real-time and photoreal rendering into one complete suite of visualization tools. From architecture to product design, it’s everything you need to bring your next design project to life.
Much more than a renderer. See your Rhino designs like never before. Visualize in real-time with V-Ray Vision. Light scenes automatically with Light Gen. Apply finishing touches to your photoreal renders in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer. And much more.
Visualize in real-time
Supercharge your Rhino and Grasshopper design workflow
V-Ray Vision lets you visualize your designs in real-time while you work in Rhino and Grasshopper. Build your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras—all with a live real-time view of your scene. And anytime you’re ready for photo quality renders, V-Ray is always there, ready to go.
V-Ray Vision helps you:
- Explore your model
- Collaborate on design decisions
- Easily save images and 360 panoramas
- Export real-time animations
Rendering and beyond
Powerful post-processing built in
Lighting made simple
Now with Light Mix, after your scene is rendered, you can instantly adjust the brightness and color of lights without having to render again. This lets you look at dozens of lighting scenarios from just a single render.
Add your finishing touch
With the new V-Ray Frame Buffer, you can do more in V-Ray than ever before. Make color corrections, combine render elements, adjust lighting, and add the final touches to your renders without needing a separate image editing app.
Seamless Grasshopper integration
Parametric design visualization
V-Ray for Grasshopper improvements
New live link between V-Ray Vision and Grasshopper lets you visualize your parametric designs in
real-time. V-Ray Clipper support makes it easy to render sections and cutaways. And Stereo Camera support now lets you render stereoscopic 3D images.
Smart tools to save time
Save time without sacrificing quality
Lighting that’s automatic
With the new Light Gen tool, lighting your Rhino scene is automatic. In minutes, Light Gen calculates multiple lighting options and shows them as thumbnails. Simply choose the look you want and render.
New V-Ray material layers
With new built-in Coat and Sheen layers added to the V-Ray Material, it’s faster and easier than ever to create materials with reflective coatings and soft fabrics such as silk, satin, and velvet.
High-resolution material library
Get a headstart on your next design project. V-Ray 5 for Rhino comes with access to over 500 render-ready materials with high-resolution 4K textures.
Complete creative control
The details make the difference
More accurate sun and sky
The new Improved Sun and Sky model is more accurate and looks great even at sunrise or sunset when the sun is at the horizon. You can also override the position of the sun and sky with new Custom Orientation controls
Add randomness for realism
New randomization tools make it easy to create subtle variations in textures and materials for added realism. Plus the new Stochastic tiling controls are a fast fix for repeating patterns.
Improved line rendering
To give your renders an illustrative look, now you can easily add linework with global contour controls and material overrides.
Dirt and weathering
The improved V-Ray Dirt texture can help give your Rhino model a weathered look. Easy controls let you vary the amount of dirt and streaks in corners or across entire surfaces.
