This looks good. I’ve got a copy of V 2.0 which I just didn’t end up using much. For those early adopters and BTesters how is this version? Stable? Fast with GPU rendering? and is the GPU strictly for tests or can you do finished work with it?

What is the cost of upgrading?


does GPU-rendering only work with CUDA or is openCL also supported?
if so, how does the performance compare?

@hitenter CUDA and CPU RT (Interactive) rendering is only supported at this time. OpenCL RT is something we are looking to add a later point.

@PaulS Yes you can create GPU production renders in V-Ray 3 For Rhino 3.


Great! How’s the speed compared to Arion and Octane?

Faster of course!

Are you talking about GPU?

@matt_newberg I hope that is V-Ray 3 for Rhino… not V-Ray for “Rhino 3” :slight_smile:


waiting long long time…:joy:
