V-Ray for Rhino is a highly accurate renderer for McNeel Rhinoceros, enabling designers to predict and present their designs with the highest level of realism and reduce the need of physical prototypes. V-Ray greatly increases Rhino’s ability to handle large scenes and can be used directly within Grasshopper.
V-Ray Next for Rhino is much more than a do-it-all renderer that creates gorgeous images of your designs. It’s also a full suite of tools to help you accomplish more in Rhino than ever before. V-Ray Next makes it easier to manage everything in your scene — even the crazy complex ones.
V-Ray Next is smart, too. It learns from your scene to make lighting faster. And it can set your camera exposure and white balance automatically. It’s fast. V-Ray Next for Rhino is 50% faster overall. GPU rendering is 2x faster. And it’s up to 7x faster with the new Adaptive Dome Light. V-Ray Next for Rhino extends what is possible in Grasshopper even further - now you can animate Grasshopper definitions as well as cameras and sunlight, and measure real-world illumination values — all right in Grasshopper.
V-Ray Next for Rhino is compatible with Rhino 5 and Rhino 6. V-Ray for Rhino is supported on Windows only.
