The Anytime Renderer

When we say it's the most complete lighting, rendering and shading toolkit on the market, we mean it. Every production type and size is covered in a system that is as friendly to a film production as it is to an arch-viz project. And for each type, users get a tool they can count on. Whether you put your trust in speed, quality or stability, V-Ray 3.0 is there when you need it. Wherever you need it.

Less Render Wander

Is the fact that V-Ray 3.0 gets you home faster the best part about the new update? Depends on who you ask. The new Progressive Production Renderer certainly does make life better for the time-taxed artists out there. Built on the same path tracing technology as V-Ray RT, the Progressive Renderer is compatible with all V-Ray production features - Irradiance Map, Light Cache, SSS, Render Elements - and is so simple that "one-click rendering" might just turn into your new best friend. Or the thing you can point to when you need to make it home in time for dinner.

Simple Set-ups

Simplicity will always sell because life is just too darn complicated. And honestly, the last thing an artist needs in their life is more complexity. They have enough hoops to jump through. To that end, V-Ray 3.0 is introducing a brand-new user interface that puts the essentials up front (think: speed, quality and quick settings) and puts the advanced features away in a place that's still easy to find. Faster work through better design. We think you'll like it.

Quick Where It Counts

Is it faster? Of course, V-Ray 3.0 is faster; that's priority #1. In fact, it's faster all across the board with 2-5x speed improvements for ray tracing, and up to 15x for hair. The real question now is: what will you do with all that extra time?

Misc Product Info

Technical Specifications:
V-Ray for 3ds Max comes with 1 GUI (Graphical User Interface) license and 1 Universal Render Node. This means that if you are in 3ds Max and rendering using the frame buffer, only one person can use that license at one time. If you are rendering single frame/image using distributed rendering, or if you are rendering one frame per machine for an animation, you can render on 1 machine. This machine can be the same machine where the GUI license is located or on another machine on your network.
Product Licensing:
V-Ray 3.0 license is not transferable to different companies or people
Supported Applications:
A computer with 3ds Max 2011/3ds Max Design 2011 or later, 64 bit versions only
System Requirements:

•  4 GB RAM and 4 GB swap minimum - recommended 8 GB or more RAM, 8 GB or more swap file;
•  Intel Pentium IV or compatible processor with SSE2 support;
•  Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, 64 bit versions only;
•  A computer with 3ds Max 2011/3ds Max Design 2011 or later, 64 bit versions only;

NUMA architecture is supported but not recommended*

Note: More efficient rendering on a NUMA machine is achieved with several copies of 3ds Max or DR render servers. In both cases each instance should be limited to one NUMA node because of the slower access that a core has to the rest of the RAM.
