V-Ray for Revit 2023
V-Ray for Revit is widely recognized for its ability to produce highly realistic architectural renderings. Its seamless integration allows users to work directly within the Revit environment, and its innovative features enable advanced visualization without modifying the original BIM data. Whether in the early stages of design or finalizing the project, Chaos V-Ray provides a comprehensive set of tools to effectively visualize your Revit projects.
With V-Ray Vision, you get real-time high-quality visual feedback of your model as you build it. Additionally, you can easily export images or 360 panoramas. Materials, cameras and lighting set up in V-Ray Vision can easily be scaled to photorealism.
Our integrated asset library, Chaos Cosmos, enables you to search and add render-ready objects to your model directly in Revit. With accurate scale, automatic LODs and interoperability across 3ds Max, SketchUp and Rhino, Chaos Cosmos assets are an essential addition to any Revit pipeline.
V-Ray comes with two powerful rendering engines. You can choose between super-fast GPU and CPU or Hybrid rendering to best suit your project needs and requirements.
The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence to remove noise in an instant. And the V-Ray Denoiser supports denoising individual render channels to simplify compositing.
Render interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights, materials and cameras and see the results right away.
Rendering on the Cloud is just one click away.
Powerful and scalable distributed rendering system that's simple and fast. Get an extra speed boost with V-Ray Render nodes.
Choose from many unique beauty, utility and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.
Automatically analyzes your scene to optimize rendering so you get the best quality in less time.
Set up individual lighting, mood, and composition per view in the same Revit model. Easily share render settings across teams and projects.
Leave V-Ray to render your project images while you are away. Batch rendering helps you schedule multiple views for rendering with a click of a button.
V-Ray adds extra realism to Revit’s Solar Study. Explore and visualize the impact of natural light and shadows on your designs across a variety of timespans.
V-Ray naturally fits into Revit's UI and complements your Revit workflow without altering your BIM database.
Create, edit, save and manage your V-Ray materials all in one place with the Asset Editor. Assign materials to a new proxy object, save it in the Editor and reuse this configuration in any project.
Take your Revit renders to the next level. With the Appearance Manager, you can set basic Revit assets to automatically switch to more realistic V-Ray assets at render time.
Track history of your rendered images, fine-tune their color parameters and save them directly to your Revit project. Use the new layer-based compositor to do color corrections of final renders and save your presets for future projects.
Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image-based lighting.V-Ray automatically converts all Revit lights to V-Ray ones and further extends Revit's lighting capabilities.
Experiment and adjust your model’s lighting after you have rendered. Tweak the brightness and color of individual or groups of light sources to find the best rendition for your space.
This lighting algorithm dramatically speeds up rendering in scenes containing many lights. And you can render image-based lighting much faster with the new Adaptive Dome Light. It’s exceptionally quick for interiors and substantially speeds up your rendering.
Easily visualize real-world illumination values (lux) with the new Lighting Analysis render element.
Take advantage of our improved sky model to present your design in its best light when the sun is at the horizon. Alternatively, use the sky generation parameters for full creative control.
Render photorealistic rooms and interiors with powerful and fast global illumination.
Work like a photographer, with controls for exposure, white balance, depth of field and more.
Capture the perfect exposure every time. The new Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance camera controls make rendering as simple as point and shoot.
Add that extra touch of photorealism with real-world camera lens effects such as bloom and glare.
Experience your designs at 1:1 scale. Create content for popular VR headsets with 6x1 cubic and spherical stereo camera types.
Materials and textures
Create great looking materials that look exactly like the real thing.
Download over 500 4K-quality architectural materials from our library on demand. Glass, metal, wood — any texture you need for your model is available and render-ready.
Render an enhanced version of your Revit materials automatically.
Add images to paintings, signs, screens and more. V-Ray for Revit has full support for Revit Decals.
Give your model a sketch-like look. Use the global contour settings to create every outline automatically or the Contour material attribute to highlight a certain region.
Use these two new layers to add distinct effects to V-Ray materials. The Coat layer creates polished surfaces while the Sheen layer is perfect for realistic fabrics such as silk or velvet.
Use the UVW Randomization asset to create realistic materials by randomizing patterns and colors. The Stochastic Tiling functionality removes texture tiling seams.
Easily add weathering effects to any surface of your model with the V-Ray Dirt texture with complete control over its position and amount.
The V-Ray Material adds native support for metallic reflections (Metalness) for greater compatibility with PBR materials from applications like Substance Designer.
Create realistic and unique shaders using any texture map or one of V-Ray’s many built-in procedural textures - Gradient, Temperature, Tri-Planar, etc.
Make the most out of your early designs and get a feel of your project by quickly rendering cardboard models.
1000+ scanned materials. Import and render directly in V-Ray.
Quickly add realistic atmospheric depth and haze and use true 3D fog with realistic light scattering.
Simulate natural looking skies with realistic atmospheric depth.
Realistic material light scattering and translucency.
Work smart without altering your BIM database. Use your Revit families as stand-ins for all V-Ray objects.
Use your Revit families as stand-ins for V-Ray proxy objects. These are memory efficient models of highly detailed objects like trees and cars.
Render realistic grass, carpets or fabric.
Add variety to your V-Ray entourage such as plants and trees by randomizing their scale and rotation.
Link and render V-Ray scenes from other applications such as 3ds Max, Rhino, and SketchUp. Share complete ready-to-render V-Ray for Revit files.
Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling when creating materials such as brick and stone. The displacement asset can be applied to both V-Ray materials and Revit materials.
Render sections easily with full support for Revit's native section box.
Create context for your project in a click of a button.
