We’d like to introduce V-Ray Next for Rhino, the first smart renderer made for designers.
V-Ray becomes a project control center and expands the capabilities of Rhino and Grasshopper with photorealistic rendering, scene intelligence, and asset management.
Everywhere you look V-Ray Next is faster. 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 7 times.
V-Ray Scene Intelligence, introduced in V-Ray Next, automatically analyzes a 3D scene to optimize some of the most common decisions a designer makes. For instance, the new Adaptive Dome Light (ADL) now offers more accurate, image-based environment lighting that’s up to seven times 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 renderings 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 scene’s look.
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. You 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.
