Yesterday, November 15, Chaos Group announced the latest version of its professional rendering plug-in. Built on industry-leading Chaos Group technology, V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp simplifies the design process for architects and designers by offering photorealistic visualizations and easy-to-use controls from concept to design. This most up-to-date version offers a streamlined interface, enhanced GPU rendering and SketchUp 2018 support. We present to you some of the new features:
With new Viewport rendering, you can easily select and render multiple regions at once, and quickly blend between your V-Ray render and SketchUp model using +/- hotkeys to control opacity.
Faster, more powerful GPU rendering with added support for aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows, and more.
V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.
For scenes with lots of lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you cut render times by up to 700%.
Create sunlight & shadow studies with SketchUp sun animation.
Give your scenes depth with new realistic 3D fog and light scattering effects.
Import and render V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) from other applications such as 3ds Max, Rhino, and Revit.
The V-Ray Denoiser is now easier to set up and you can refine settings even after you render.
