What's New in V-Ray 3.6

Chaos Group has released V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp, the latest update for its professional rendering plugin. Built with the Chaos Group's industry-leading technology, V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp simplifies the design process for architects and designers, offering photorealistic visuals and easy-to-use concept controls for construction. This latest update brings a simplified interface, improved GPU rendering and support for SketchUp 2018.

With a complete set of creative tools, V-Ray allows you to render anything and everything - from fast design models to the most detailed 3D scenes.

New stuff in V-Ray 3.6

Viewport rendering: With the new Viewport rendering, you can easily select and render multiple regions at the same time, and quickly blend between your V-Ray render and the SketchUp model using +/- hot keys to control opacity.

Powerful GPU Rendering: Faster and more powerful GPU processing, with additional support for aerial perspective, displacement, underground dispersion, matte / shadows and more.

Hybrid GPU + CPU Rendering: The V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.

Adaptive Lights: For scenes with lots of lights, the new adaptive light mode can help you reduce rendering times by up to 700%.

Intelligent Interface: The entire V-Ray interface for SketchUp is now cleaner and simpler, with better support for 4K monitors.

File Manager: Manage all your scene files in one place. Define file paths, create scene files and track resources such as textures, IES files and proxy objects.

V-Ray Color Picker: New color picker that is simple and powerful. Select color values ​​in the Screen sRGB (0-255) or Rendering (0.0-1.0) color space.

Scene Import: Import and render V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) from other applications, such as 3ds Max, Rhino and Revit.

Sun Studies: Create sunlight and shadow studies with SketchUp sun animation.

Mist: Give your scenes depth with new realistic 3D fog and light scattering effects.

New Texture Maps: Adjust the look of your scene with new texture maps of procedural and gradient noise.

2D Displacement: Quickly add surface details without extra modeling with optimized 2D displacement - perfect for architectural materials like bricks and stones.

Animated Proxy Objective: Easily add pre-animated 3D objects like people on foot and trees blowing in the wind with animated V-Ray proxies.

Proxy Presentation: Control the appearance of V-Ray proxies in the SketchUp display window. Select from Entire Mesh, Binder Box, Point (Origin) and the new low Poly Proxy preview mode.

Best Viewporter Material: Get a more accurate preview of your V-Ray materials in the SketchUp display window.

Improved Denoiser: The Denoiser V-Ray is now easier to configure and you can refine settings even after rendering.
