Chaos Group Releases V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino

Popular Renderer for Rhino Gets Major Overhaul Across the Board; Speed, Workflow, Lighting, and Material Improvements; Free for V-Ray 1.5 for Rhino Customers

Sofia, Bulgaria 9 December 2013 – Today marks the launch of V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino, the newest update to Chaos Group’s high-performance rendering engine for designers. With up to 30x faster V-Ray RT performance, V-Ray Express tools and HDR Light Studio live connection with Light Paint, this release aims to promote creativity and artist-friendly workflows for Rhino users.

Behind every new V-Ray release, you’ll find in-depth feedback from artists and designers. V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino is no different. By partnering with the people that use the software the most, Chaos Group’s development team has been able to ensure that the intuitive and simplified rendering process they envisioned lines up with the creative control their users want.

“V-Ray for Rhino has been our renderer of choice at Minimal since the day the company was formed,” says Dustin Brown, Lead Designer at MNML. “The material system is extremely powerful, lighting is quick and customizable, and network rendering works transparently within our design process, even for still images. It helps us spend more time designing and less time visualizing – and that is exactly what we want.”

Big new and improved features in V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino include:

  • V-Ray RT Interactive responses and a streamlined scene composition with GPU ray tracing up to 30 times faster from directly inside the Rhino viewport.
  • V-Ray Material A brand new compact and optimized material for V-Ray that includes parameters to adjust diffuse, reflection, and refraction.
  • V-Ray Express Users can easily access more than 200 materials and interchangeable lighting setups to create realistic studio scenes and illuminate models faster than ever.
  • HDR Light Studio Support Live connection HDR Light Studio with Light Paint feature accessed directly within Rhino, providing the most intuitive and creative way to light a design.

“We are very excited that, for the very first time, HDR Light Studio can be accessed from within an actual 3D design environment through the new V-Ray for Rhino live connection,” said Mark Segasby, co-founder and CEO of Lightmap Ltd. “Everything you need to bring your vision to life is all in one Rhino scene file now – from your 3D forms to material/finishes to the lighting. It just makes sense.”

“Our focus on full integration makes sure our customers never lose precious work hours to inefficiency,” says Corey Rubadue, Product Manager at Chaos Group. “Our commitment to the design community is unwavering, and we believe the faster speeds, easy controls and access to content will only accelerate their projects and products.”

Chaos Group has also prepared a long list of dedicated resources that will help new V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino users. Those materials include: help documentation, introductory videos, a dedicated forum, and a dedicated product page.
