V-Ray 5 for Unreal has released, and now architects and designers can explore V-Ray scenes in Unreal with more precision, take advantage of time-saving workflows, and enjoy improved compatibility with other V-Ray 5 applications.
Set V-Ray Light Bake’s parameters to optimise lightmaps for specific projects, perform colour corrections and composite layers of renders directly in the V-Ray Frame Buffer, and make use of fast denoising during interactive rendering on any CPU configuration with the Intel Open Image Denoise engine.
- Physical Materials & Translation Automatically converts V-Ray materials to approximate Unreal materials. Original V-Ray materials are used when rendering.
- V-Ray Light Baking bakes your ray-traced lighting with V-Ray for the highest quality real-time illumination.
- Accurate Lighting in your Unreal scenes with physically accurate, ray-traced lighting from V-Ray.
- Global illumination renders realistic bounced light using V-Ray’s Brute force and proprietary Light cache global illumination.
- GPU+CPU Rendering lets you render on all your hardware — with support for CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs, or a combination of both.
- Viewport Rendering interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights and materials and instantly view V-Ray results directly in the Unreal viewport.
- Cryptomatte automatically generates and stores object or material-based masks. It’s perfect when you need to accurately select objects in post-production.
- Support for the latest & greatest adds extra realism to Unreal’s latest features including Sun & Sky, Mesh light and Landscape. Explore and visualise the impact of natural light and shadows on your designs, turn any object into an efficient light source, render a variety of terrains.
- Chaos Cloud offers fast, simple cloud rendering and light baking, directly from Unreal Engine. Chaos Cloud handles everything for you automatically — from licensing and uploading your scenes to distributing your job across virtual machines.
