What is V-Ray?


As you probably already know, Vray is a render plugin. It's a plugin, which means that it adds functionality to an existing program. Vray's features mainly aim at creating photorealistic images, together with improving rendering speed. Currently V-Ray is available for the following software products:

There is a standalone version available aswell.


Most of Vray's features can be found in the render setup dialog (F10), but many other additions are distributed across the complete program. For example Vray adds its own materials and textures, light types, a fur generator, a toon style effect, displacement modifier, frame buffer, effects, etc.


Vray is created by Chaosgroup, a European company based in Bulgaria.
