V-Ray 1.5 for Rhino, upgrade now

V-Ray 1.5 for RhinoSome of the key features of the new V-Ray 1.5 for Rhino:

V-RayRT® - a revolutionary rendering engine providing instant feedback and streamlining scene setup. Because V-Ray RT is built upon the same robust core as V-Ray, it is seamless to transition between V-Ray RT and production rendering.

Dome Light - create simple, artifact-free image-based lighting using the Dome Light. Its powerful importance sampling analyzes HDR images and optimizes light tracing and GI precision.

V-Ray Proxy - an indispensable tool for managing scene memory and efficiently rendering massive amounts of geometry. V-Ray Proxy objects are dynamically loaded and unloaded at render-time, saving vital RAM resources.

Lens Effects (Glare / Bloom ) - simulate the natural lens effects that occur when photographing highlights.

Dispersion - trace and refract light based on its wavelength.

Retrace Threshold - reduce Light Cache artifacts and improve the appearance of glossy reflections and refractions when using the time saving feature - Use light cache for glossy rays.

Ambient Occlusion - generate shading based on an object’s proximity, and enhance GI details without significantly increasing render time.

VRayDirt - simulate shading around corners and crevices of objects based on a radial distance. VRayDirt can be used to produce a variety of effects, including ambient occlusion renderings.

Interpolation (Reflections and Refractions) - accelerate rendering by approximating and caching the effects of glossy reflections and refractions.

IES Light - use photometric data to provide accurate light definition.

Sphere Light - create spherically shaped area lights.
