Free V-Ray for Revit update includes Adaptive Lights, improved Swarm and Revit 2018 support
This update includes the new Adaptive Lights algorithm, which renders up to seven times faster on some scenes. In addition, Chaos have made several improvements to V-Ray Swarm, the elastic distributed rendering platform, including installation customization, support for Linux and MacOS operating systems and a greater support for a variety of network configurations.
Most models will have to deal with surface continuity at some point, as it is very rare to have an object made out of one single surface. This webinar will cover Position (G0), Tangency (G1) and Curvature (G2) continuity, learning about matching and blending surfaces together using a desired continuity at each side. We will also be using tools to analyse both continuity and quality of surfaces.
The model used for this webinar is a boat hull, where smooth transitions and surfaces are required.
It is strongly recommended to watch the webinar on curves before attending/watching this one!
A solid knowledge of Rhino is required. No microphone or webcam are required. The seminar is not platform dependent; it is aimed at both Windows and Mac users.
The Tech Team experts of McNeel Europe will conduct the webinar in different languages. Remember that all previous webinars can be viewed here.
E-on software, in association with Nvidia, Wacom, HP, Pixologic, ArtStation, CGChannel, CGSociety, Cornucopia3D, Geekatplay, AsileFX, QuadSpinner, Routledge, Gnomon School, Bournemouth University and Ecole George Melies are honoured to invite you to participate in the “3D Environment Competition 2017”.
With judges that are leading experts in the major fields of the 3D entertainment industry, and with over $30,000 worth in prizes, this competition is the biggest they have ever organised!
Create an image of any kind of environment!
Images can be in any style and genre, realistic or imaginary, as long as the natural environment is visually predominant. You can use imported objects and figures, but keep in mind that the judges will focus primarily on the quality of the 3D landscape.
Main and Academic Categories
For the first time, the competition will have 2 distinct categories, with specific prizes for both.
The main category is opened to every Artist (professionals and hobbyists), and the second category will be dedicated to Students.
To keep things simple, all entrants will submit their entry to the same gallery, however, Students must add an Academic watermark to their submission to be considered for the e-on Academic category.
You may use your application of choice, in combination with any of the e-on software products. This includes any version of VUE (Esprit, Studio, Complete, Infinite or xStream), including the free Personal Learning Edition and the free VUE Pioneer.
The 3D Environment competition is open to everyone, hobbyists and professionals alike. The judging will be based solely on the quality, originality and artistic merit of the images, not on the software used to create them.
In the first stage of the competition, e-on’s Picture of the Day contest team will select 10 finalists from all submissions in each category. The finalists’ images will be displayed on the e-on website, with links to their personal website/gallery. In the second stage, our judges will pick the winners out of the finalists.

Yes. It’s here. V-Ray 3 for SketchUp is officially released today. With it comes compatibility with SketchUp 2017, something most people have been crying out for. Beyond this there are actually many more substantial changes. With this iteration, V-Ray for SketchUp radically improves live adjustments and utilises GPU power.
As with all upgrades, V-Ray for SketchUp incorporates the latest V-Ray render engine and this includes support for the latest hardware architecture and new and developing graphics card technology. The interface has been rebuilt to be easier and quicker to use, with changes to enhance fast set up. There are also better underlying improvements for error handling and features most people won’t see but which should result in improved stability and performance.
With the release of V-Ray 3 for SketchUp, Chaos will now offer an online licensing option as well as the USB dongled licenses. Electronic licenses are currently not available for upgrades.
The basic V-Ray 3 for SketchUp Workstation license no longer includes any additional render nodes. For those users taking advantage of v2’s render nodes, it will be necessary to upgrade based on need. Five and ten render node addons are available as standard, more on request.
30 Day Free Trial
