HDR Light Studio leads the list of features that extend the rendering workflow inside Rhino.
Chaos Group has released V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino, an update it describes as “a major overhaul.” Additions to materials, lighting options, and a new HDR Light Studio extend the ability of Rhino users to create photo-realistic or non-realistic creative images from their models.
Significant additions or changes 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 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.
V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino is now available for Rhino versions 4 and 5. Unlike most software products today, V-Ray requires a hardware key to license its software. V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino customers will have the option to purchase a new hardware key or install the license on an existing one. Registered users have access to a free demo through the V-Ray 2.0 for Rhino product page.
