V-Ray 5 brings a whole new rendering experience to Cinema 4D. With new smart tools and workflows, plus an intuitive interface, it’s faster and easier than ever. V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D goes beyond rendering with built-in compositing and interactive light mixing. Go beyond rendering, untap the power of V-Ray and work smarter.
New! Key features in V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D, update 1
Node-based material editing.
With support for Cinema 4D’s latest native node-based material editing system, you can now easily view and manage your entire V-Ray shading network — all the way from creating materials and textures to adding the finishing touches.
Multiple additive Dome Lights
You can now render multiple dome lights at the same time. Direct support in Light Mix makes it easier than ever to mix light sources and relight your scene even after you’ve rendered.
Add realism to your renders with V-Ray’s new progressively calculated caustics, helping you achieve real-world reflections and refractions faster. And it’s easier to set up, without the need for pre-calculated photon maps.
New V-Ray Material Translucency
It’s now easier than ever to render photorealistic skin, plastic, wax, and more. The updated V-Ray Material with builtin volumetric subsurface scattering lets you create translucent materials in just a few clicks.
Pixel-perfect masks in the V-Ray Frame Buffer
Fine-tune parts of your render using any of V-Ray’s masking render elements—Cryptomatte, MultiMatte, and Object/ Render/ Material IDs. No need to rerender or go to another app.
Render realistic hair and fur faster than ever before using V-Ray’s procedural fur. Simulate realistic grass, fabrics, carpets, hair and much more.
Create quick cutaways and section renders with V-Ray Clipper. Convert any scene object to a clipper.
V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D key features
The new layer-based compositor allows you to combine render passes, set blending modes and adjust colors without going to a separate app.
Now from a single render, you can create dozens of lighting scenarios. Change the color and intensity of lights instantly without having to render again.
GPU + CPU Rendering
Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.
GPU Production Rendering
Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU. Now even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.
Fast Interactive Rendering
Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.
Easily harness the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.
Render stills and animations alike in the cloud, at the push of a button — now with full support for Chaos Cloud, our cloud rendering service.
Render realistic fog, smoke and atmospheric effects. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini,FumeFX and Phoenix FD.
Auto Exposure and White Balance
The V-Ray Camera can automatically set exposure and white balance for you, so you don’t have to do it manually.
The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence that instantly reduces noise while you render.
Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It’s faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.
Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.
Improved V-Ray Dirt
Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.
New Sun and Sky Model
Capture the light of magic hour. The improved Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon
Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.
Car Paint 2 Material
Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.
Physical Hair Material
Achieve more realistic results with the new physically accurate V-Ray Hair Material.
Аdd variety to your scenes by randomizing colors and textures with V-Ray MultiSub Texture.
VRscans Material Library Support
Get access to a library of over 1,000 unbelievably real materials — a great asset to helpyou with your V-Ray visualizations.
