Chaos Vantage 2
Chaos Vantage is a technology for exploring and presenting V-Ray scenes in real-time within a 100% ray-traced environment. Artists and designers simply drag and drop or live link their V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) to explore them immediately in real-time – without wasting time optimizing geometry and materials, unwrapping UVs, or light baking. Once in Vantage, users have the freedom to define and recall views and scene states create immersive experiences, and better communicate their designs.
With support for an array of essential production rendering features, Chaos Vantage enables users to present their ideas with close-to-production images and video even at the previz stage while taking only a fraction of the render time.
Key benefits for users
Drag and drop your V-Ray scene into Chaos Vantage and start exploring. There’s no geometry and materials to optimize, UVs to unwrap, or lighting to bake.
Chaos Vantage handles gigantic scenes and billions of polygons and high-res textures without a problem. Test it with your most detailed production scenes.
Chaos Vantage uses physically based lighting, materials, and global illumination to create results with photorealistic accuracy — perfect for design validation.
Work in parallel.
Instant sync of changes to your content with a live link to 3ds Max, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, and Cinema 4D. Speed up previz setup and rendering, and transfer any changes you make back to your DCC.
Navigate your scene just like playing a game. There’s even automatic collision detection useful for climbing stairs and being blocked by walls — perfect for over-the-shoulder presentations.
Create and render animated sequences directly in Chaos Vantage. Create your pitch and tell your story in real time within Vantage. You can quickly render it offline for even better quality.
What’s new in Chaos Vantage 2?
Chaos Vantage 2 adds powerful capabilities that enable users to convey their design even more effectively. With the help of scene states, it’s easy to toggle between different moods and variations of their project and turn design validation presentations into interactive storyboards. Users can now visualize realistic vegetation moving in the wind and animated people interacting with their design. With support for popular render elements like “back to beauty” and material and object masks, they can composite their images and image sequences in image-editing applications.
Present scene variants with ease
Speed up the design validation process by creating different variations of your project. Assign varying lights, materials, and even object transformations to different cameras and call them up with ease during presentations.
Bring your project to life
Animate people and vegetation to create even more captivating stories. With support for deformed meshes via Live Link, you can add that wow factor to your presentation and demonstrate how your project interacts with its environment.
Add finishing touches to your Vantage images with ease by making use of the most popular render elements, such as “Back to beauty,” as well as material and object mattes (masks).
