New: Chaos Group V-Ray Next for Rhino is Now Available + Webinar Info
Chaos Group has just released V-Ray Next for Rhino (v4), the first smart renderer made for designers. V-Ray Next is faster, smarter and more powerful than ever. See what’s new!
Chaos Group V-Ray Next for Rhino
Tailored tools have expanded the core capabilities of Rhino and Grasshopper, linking photorealistic rendering, scene intelligence and asset management into a powerful new workflow that centralizes the design/visualization experience.
V-Ray Next is faster everywhere you look. Thanks to the optimized materials and overall performance gains in V-Ray Next, rendering speeds are now up to 50 percent faster than before. Improvements to GPU rendering offer another 200 percent, further extended through V-Ray Scene Intelligence, which can show specific improvements up to 7x.
V-Ray Scene Intelligence, introduced in V-Ray Next, automatically analyzes a 3D scene at the start of a render to optimize some of the most common decisions a designer will make. For instance, the new Adaptive Dome Light (ADL) now offers more accurate, image-based environment lighting that’s up to 7x faster. This is especially helpful for interiors, where it removes the need to add separate light portals at windows and openings.
V-Ray Scene Intelligence has also improved the V-Ray camera, which can now set exposure and white balance automatically, allowing for picture-perfect renders every time. No-input denoising is also available through the new NVIDIA AI denoiser, which eliminates image noise almost instantly, giving an immediate sense of lighting. This type of denoising is perfect for interactively fine-tuning the look of a scene.
Powerful Asset Management
The new asset management system acts as a new project control center, helping designers streamline workflows and coordinate across projects. Now, you can manage all of their V-Ray scene assets in an intuitive way, and use the live preview function to fine-tune the look of lights, textures and materials from a central location.
Unparalleled Grasshopper Support
V-Ray Next for Rhino launches with the most comprehensive Grasshopper toolset on the market, bringing new abilities to the parametric design tool. With live interactivity, designers can use V-Ray from within Grasshopper to produce stunning visualizations of abstract curves and repeating patterns, without exporting anything back to Rhino. Users can also now animate sunlight, cameras and Grasshopper definitions from the V-Ray timeline. Definitions stay parametric throughout the rendering process, in both Grasshopper and Rhino.
Additional Features Include:
Enhanced GPU Rendering – Designers can now access the full power of GPU rendering in V-Ray, adding support for bucket rendering, volumetric effects such as smoke and fog and compatibility with VRscans, Chaos Group’s library of physically accurate, scanned materials.
More Accurate Viewport Previews – Improved accuracy in the Rhino viewport with enhanced reflections, refractions, bump maps and more.
Automated Rendering with V-Ray Batch – With access to V-Ray Swarm, it’s now easier to render snapshots and variations of a project, as well as views from multiple Rhino files.
New Lighting Analysis Tool – Visualize a scene’s real-world illumination values (lux) using the new lighting analysis render element.
New Scripting Support – Use RhinoScript or Python to automate V-Ray tasks and properties, or access V-Ray capabilities not present in the UI.

Chaos Group V-Ray Next for Rhino Webinar
Tuesday April 9, 2019
Join this webinar to discover how the powerful new additions in V-Ray Next for Rhino deliver great-looking results right out of the box.
On Tuesday, April 9, CG Specialist Cory Holm will host a free webinar to show you how the powerful new additions in V-Ray Next for Rhino can supercharge the design process and boost your productivity.
Topics covered will include:
- Asset library management
How to manage assets of any type in an intuitive and customizable folder structure. See how to create custom libraries to share between projects, visualize shader hierarchies, and preview your materials, lights, textures and render elements in a single viewer.
- New Grasshopper functionality
How to set up an animation in Grasshopper with the new V-Ray Timeline node. Plus, send camera and sun animations from Grasshopper to Rhino.
- New denoising possibilities
How the new NVIDIA AI Denoiser will remove noise nearly instantly while rendering and make close to real-time iterations.
- Scene Intelligence
How to render your scenes up to 7x faster using the new Adaptive Dome Light. You’ll also see how Scene Intelligence will optimize rendering using automatic analysis of your scene. Plus, see the new automatic camera exposure and white balance settings in action, which will help you to render correctly exposed and color-balanced images.
- 2x Faster V-Ray GPU
How GPU rendering is now twice as fast, on average, thanks to V-Ray Next’s new rendering architecture.
- Chaos Cloud rendering
How simple it is to submit render jobs to Chaos Cloud directly from V-Ray for Rhino’s interface.
