THE INDUSTRY STANDARD
92 of the top 100 architecture firms in the world render with V-Ray every day.
POWERFUL ASSET MANAGEMENT
Streamline your workflow and keep track of your entire scene quickly and easily with the new and improved asset management tools in V-Ray Next for SketchUp. You can now search, select and preview assets — including full material setups — all from one location.
DEEP SKETCHUP CONNECTION
In addition to rendering, V-Ray Next for SketchUp adds new and improved tools to help you manage your scene, customize your viewport styles, and import V-Ray scenes from other 3D applications. And to expand your toolkit further, it includes improved network rendering and a new V-Ray toolbar to make it easy to access all your favorite tools.
EFFICIENT RENDER CONTROL
The new intuitive camera settings make it easy to render your next masterpiece with V-Ray Next for SketchUp. The updated layout for the camera controls let you manipulate the quick and advanced parameters at the same time. You can now specify custom pixel resolutions without bothering with the aspect ratio.
NEW MATERIALS AND TEXTURES
Now in V-Ray Next for SketchUp, the standard V-Ray Material is compatible with PBR metallic reflections that are popular in game engines and other tools such as Substance Designer. And for even greater control, you can also remap the RGB or HSV values of any texture.
AUTOMATIC EXPOSURE AND WHITE BALANCE
With the new Automatic Exposure option, V-Ray now uses adaptive learning techniques to help you render a perfectly exposed image each time. You can also rely on the new Automatic White Balance feature to automatically remove any warm or cold light tint coming from the sun or skylight.
ADAPTIVE DOME LIGHT
Adaptive Dome Light can automatically increase your render speed up to 7x faster depending on the scene. The ADL is exceptionally fast when working with interiors, and removes the need to add Portal Lights at windows and openings.
Render twice as fast with V-Ray Next for SketchUp. Speed and performance optimizations mean faster rendering. Plus, enjoy quicker-than-ever renders with additional GPU-ready features and improved Cloud compatibility.
With the new NVIDIA AI Denoiser, you can instantly remove noise while you render. And with the improved V-Ray Denoiser, you can denoise each render element for even more control in post-production.
Render interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights and materials and see the results right away. View the render result directly in the SketchUp viewport.
CPU, GPU & HYBRID RENDERING
V-Ray includes two powerful renderers in one. With CPU or GPU acceleration, you can use the best engine for your project and hardware. Hybrid GPU+CPU rendering is available too.
Automatically remove noise and cut render times by up to 50%. You can refine denoising after you render too.
Rendering on the Cloud is just one click away.
Powerful and scalable distributed rendering system that's simple and fast. Get an extra speed boost with V-Ray Render nodes.
Choose from many unique beauty, utility and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.
V-Ray for SketchUp interface is clean and simple, with support for 4K monitors.
Manage all of your scene files in one place. Set file paths, create scene archives, and keep track of assets like textures, IES files, and proxy objects.
New color picker that’s simple and powerful. Select color values in Screen sRGB (0-255) or Rendering (0.0-1.0) color space.
Track render history and fine-tune color, exposure, and more, directly in V-Ray’s frame buffer.
Render any type of natural or artificial lighting with a wide range of built-in light types.
For scenes with lots of lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you speed up render times by up to 7x.
SUN & SKY
