// V-Ray for Cinema 4D KEY FEATURES

It's all-new in V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D

V-Ray® 5 brings a whole new rendering experience to Cinema 4D. With new smart tools and workflows, plus an intuitive
interface, it’s faster and easier than ever.

V-Ray 5 for Cinema 4D goes beyond rendering with built-in compositing and interactive light mixing.

Go beyond rendering

Interactive post-processing right in the new V-Ray Frame Buffer.

Now from a single render, you can create dozens of lighting scenarios. Change the color and intensity of lights instantly without having to render again.

Light Mix

The new layer-based compositor allows you to combine render passes, set blending modes and adjust colors without going to a separate app.

Built-in compositing

Unleash the power of V-Ray

Faster rendering than ever before

Take full advantage of your hardware. With V-Ray, you can render on GPUs, CPUs, or a combination of both.

GPU + CPU rendering

Vray cinema4d

Get a powerful speed boost with the GPU-accelerated performance of V-Ray GPU. Now even faster with an NVIDIA RTX card.

GPU production rendering

Vray cinema4d

Create the look you want without the wait. Interactive rendering lets you see the changes to your scene rendered on the fly.

Fast interactive rendering

Vray cinema4d

Easily harness the power of multiple machines working together to render images even faster.

Distributed rendering

Vray cinema4d

Render stills and animations alike in the cloud, at the push of a button — now with full support for Chaos Cloud, our cloud rendering service.

Chaos Cloud

Vray cinema4d

Render realistic fog, smoke and atmospheric effects. Bring in volume grid caches from Houdini, FumeFX and Phoenix FD.

Volume rendering

Work smart

Let V-Ray do the work for you.

The V-Ray Camera can automatically set exposure and white balance for you, so you don't have to do it manually.

Auto Exposure and White Balance

Vray cinema4d

The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence that instantly reduces noise while you render.

AI Denoising

Get creative

Expand your creative toolkit with all the right tools for the job.

Easily create layered materials with reflective coatings directly in the V-Ray Material. It's faster to set up and renders more quickly than a blend material.

Coat Layer

Vray cinema4d

Easily create materials for fabrics like velvet, satin and silk with the new Sheen layer added to the V-Ray Material.

Sheen Layer

Vray cinema4d

Metalness reflections are now supported directly by the V-Ray Material, making it fully compatible with PBR workflows.

Take your automotive renders to the next level with a new car paint material that includes more realistic flakes and uses less memory.

Car Paint 2 Material

vray cinema4d

Give surfaces a weathered look. With the improved V-Ray Dirt texture, you can add dirt to cracks and crevices, create procedural streaks, or cover an entire surface.

Improved V-Ray Dirt

Capture the light of magic hour. The new Sun & Sky model is more accurate and looks better at sunrise and sunset, even as the sun dips below the horizon.

New Sun and Sky Model

vray cinema4d

Add variety to your scenes by randomizing colors and textures with V-Ray MultiSub Texture.

Texture randomization

vray cinema4d

Get access to a library of over 1,000 unbelievably real materials — a great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations.

And more

Native Support for Cinema 4D Noises

Enhance your renderings with different noise patterns and detailed surfaces. Now with less memory consumption.

Light Path Expressions

For the ultimate control in compositing, you can create your own render passes with Light Path Expressions.

Blue-noise Sampling

See a cleaner render faster. With blue-noise sampling, you'll see less noise in your renders using the same amount of samples.

Out-of-core GPU Rendering

This initial implementation of out-of-core rendering can help you render scenes that are larger than the memory of your GPU.
