Update: Chaos V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max, Rhino and Sketchup Update 1 + Chaos Cosmos

vray 5 update 1

Chaos has released the first update for V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max, Rhino and Sketchup with a number of new and improved features.  They also have access to the new Chaos® Cosmos 3D asset library.

V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max

Chaos V-Ray for 3ds Max is the world’s most complete 3D rendering software for high-end visualization and production.

V-Ray for 3ds Max is a production-proven rendering software. Known for its versatility and ability to handle any type of project — from massive, dynamic scenes having thousands of lights to a sublime still life – it is the go-to solution for artists and designers across 3D industries.

What’s new in V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max, update 1?

V-Ray 5, update 1 brings even more workflow optimizations to help users save time and achieve photorealistic results fast. Mask support is now available in V-Ray Frame Buffer, allowing users to make pixel-perfect refinements without re-rendering. Progressive Caustics let users achieve photorealistic reflections and refractions even easier than before. Chaos Cosmos content library’s large collection of high-quality, render-ready 3D assets quickly adds believable entourage to interior or exterior scenes. And more.

Relight and composite from a single render.

  • Multiple additive Dome Lights – You can now render multiple dome lights at the same time. Direct support in Light Mix makes it easier than ever to fine-tune the results.
  • Pixel-perfect masks in the V-Ray Frame Buffer – Make pixel-perfect adjustments to your image without re-rendering. You can now use any of V-Ray’s masking render elements—Cryptomatte, MultiMatte, Wirecolor, and Object/ Render/ Material IDs—to select and fine-tune parts of your render.

Ultimate creative control in just a few simple steps.

  • Chaos Cosmos – Chaos Cosmos content library is a large collection of high-quality, render-ready 3D assets that quickly add believable entourage to your interior or exterior scene. With native V-Ray materials, they are easy to customize with the 3ds Max Material Editor.  Learn More
  • Advanced material override – The new material override option preserves a scene’s original opacity, bump, refraction and self-illumination, giving you even more creative control.
  • Аuto-translation of Physical Materials – Autodesk’s Physical Materials are auto-translated to V-Ray materials without additional conversions.

Superior quality, extra fast.

  • Progressive caustics – V-Ray’s new progressively calculated caustics achieve real-world reflections and refractions in less time. Easier to set up, without the need for pre-calculated photon maps.
  • New V-Ray Material translucency – Create true translucent materials with the updated V-Ray Material. Now with built-in volumetric subsurface scattering, it’s easier than ever to render realistic skin, plastic, wax, and more.
  • Improved V-Ray Material in viewport – Representations of V-Ray materials in 3ds Max viewports are now closer to the final render, giving you a better idea of how your results will look.
