V-ray for Maya

Chaos Group provides state of the art rendering solutions for the Visual FX, Film, Media and Entertainment, Architecture, Automotive design, Product design, Television, and other industries. The V-Ray rendering engine was acknowledged for its ability to deliver high quality photorealistic images in the shortest time possible. This state of the art raytracing technology is capable of reducing costs in every production pipeline due to the doubled rendering power and saving in terms of human, time and CPU resources.

Now, V-Ray for Maya enables the rendering of even larger scenes with greater complexity and artists can rely on a faster rendering process. The comprehensive list of features provided by V-Ray for Maya includes true 3D Motion Blur, Sun & Sky procedural lighting system, Physical camera for matching life footage, Environment Fog, a set of Sub-Surface Scattering shaders and many others. V-Ray for Maya is an indispensable tool that is always there to help artists transform even the most ambitious creative visions into reality for both less time and lower cost without sacrificing quality.

V-Ray is compatible with the following:

  • Autodesk Maya 2008

  • Autodesk Maya Complete 2009

  • Autodesk Maya Unlimited 2009

  • Autodesk Maya 2010 (32-bit and 64-bit)

  • Autodesk Maya 2011 (32-bit and 64-bit)

  • Autodesk Maya 2012 (32-bit and 64-bit)

  • Autodesk Maya 2013 (32-bit and 64-bit)

  • Autodesk Maya 2014 (32-bit and 64-bit) (New)

V-Ray supports both 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

New features list

  • Python callback for access to and modification of the translated V-Ray scene before rendering – this powerful feature allows you to directly modify the V-Ray scene before rendering to fit V-Ray seamlessly into your production pipeline; to access the full features of the V-Ray rendering engine and its plugins, even if they are not exposed in the user interface; to add your own custom V-Ray plugins without the need to code Maya plugins and much more.
  • Support for the Substance textures in Maya 2011.5 and Maya 2012 - use the new V-Ray 2.0 with the Substance textures in Maya 2011.5 and Maya 2012 to create a wide range of procedural shaders for your projects.
  • V-Ray RT and V-Ray RT GPU - the new interactive technology running both on CPUs and GPUs speeds up the shading and lighting stages of your production. With the new V-Ray 2.0 you can take full advantage of our state of the art interactive renderer. It can also be used for fast off-line rendering with support for motion blur on both CPU and GPU, and displacement, subdivision surfaces, hair and fur on the CPU.
  • Faster rendering of dynamic geometry (displacement, fur, proxies, hair etc) - new internal optimizations have led to even faster rendering of dynamic geometry like displacement, proxies, fur and hair etc.
  • Faster rendering of render-time subdivision surfaces, VRayFur and Maya hair - the new improved core of V-Ray 2.0 can render VRayFur, Maya hair and render-time subdivision surfaces much faster.
  • VRayCarPaint material - create realistic car paint shaders complete with "Base", "Flakes" and "Coat" layers. Full mapping support allows for amazing flexibility and a wide range of effects.
  • VRayToon shader - add amazing cartoon-like feeling to your renderings.
  • Support for dispersion in refractions for VRayMtl - this option uses the new capabilities for wavelength-dependent raytracing of the V-Ray core and allows you to create stunning close ups of refractive objects with caustics that dazzle the eye.
  • Automatic support for both Mari- and Mudbox-style tiled textures - V-Ray 2.0 can automatically load the correct texture bitmaps depending on the UV tiles of the rendered object.
  • PTex textures - with V-Ray 2.0 you can stop worrying about UV coordinates and use PTex textures instead. This state of the art technology allows the artist to be absolutely free in his or her creative process and skip the boring UV unwrapping.
  • Lens distortion through Nuke displacement maps - the VRayPhysicalCamera can use displacement maps from Nuke to completely mach the distortion of your real cameras.
  • Option to turn off camera motion blur - V-Ray 2.0 gives you a separate control to enable or disable the motion blur coming from the movement of the camera.
  • Support for rendering of Maya fluids - the new V-Ray 2.0 recognizes and renders Maya fluids directly, with full support for GI and light scattering inside the volume.
  • Support for the Maya stereo camera in batch render mode - render your stereoscopic animations with V-Ray 2.0 and Maya batch render mode.
  • The ply2vrmesh tool can convert RealFlow .bin files to .vrmesh files - with the new version of the ply2mesh tool V-Ray 2.0 users can render very large RealFlow simulations as VRayProxy objects with significantly improved memory efficiency.
  • Extended irradiance map viewer tool – allows the incremental merge of irradiance map files to avoid redundant information; preview of light cache files; manual deletion of unwanted samples, and usage of OpenGL display lists for more interactivity.
  • Img2tiledexr tool for mass conversion of many common image formats to tiled OpenEXR files.
  • Output of multi-channel scanline OpenEXR files with data-window - removes the need to manually convert the multichannel OpenEXR files produced by V-Ray to scanline-based OpenEXR files for efficient processing by compositing applications.
  • Shutter efficiency for motion blur – render more realistic motion blur with manual control over the camera shutter efficiency.
  • and many other fixes and improvements...
