lights-vray-nuke
Accurate Lighting

Simulate realistic ray traced lighting and shadows with a wide range of light types including spot lights, area lights, HDR environments, Nuke lights and more.

global-illumination
Global Illumination

Render accurate indirect illumination with V-Ray’s precise ray traced GI. Now with light cache support.

materials-menu
Physically-based Materials

Create multilayered physical materials directly in Nuke. Choose from purpose-built shaders for car paint, SSS, skin and more.

node-based
Production-ready Textures

Choose from a number of production-ready texture types including tiled EXR & TX files, layered textures, ambient occlusion and procedural noise.

physical-camera
Cameras

Select from a variety of camera types including physical cameras, VR panoramas and Nuke projection cameras.

vr-camera
VR Cameras

Render to popular VR formats including spherical and cubic 6x1 panoramas.

geometry
Geometry

Import Alembic, FBX and OBJ geometry with Nuke's built-in ReadGeo node.

Nuke_VRScene_Geo
V-Ray Scene Assets

Extract and reuse individual objects from a V-Ray Scene (.vrscene) file. If you need more control, you can define a set of objects to generate a reusable and customizable VRayScene asset.

proxy-vray-nuke
Proxy Objects

Import and render memory-efficient proxy objects as Alembic or V-Ray mesh files.

nuke-particles
Instancing with Particles

Instance V-Ray proxy objects using Nuke particles.

volume-grid-vray
V-Ray Volume Grid

Import and render volume simulations from applications like Houdini. Supports OpenVDB, Field3D and Phoenix FD files.

Progressive Rendering

Fine-tune the look of your renders faster than ever. As you make adjustments to your scene, your rendering will update automatically.

deep-vray
Deep Rendering

Improved deep rendering capabilities with support for deep volumes. Save disk space by generating deep data directly inside Nuke.

render-elements
Render Elements

Generate beauty, matte and utility passes on the fly. V-Ray for Nuke includes more than 37 built-in render elements for ultimate control.

Full Light Select Render Element

Render individual or groups of lights as separate render elements, and accurately light mix in post with full support for global illumination, reflections and refractions.

Cryptomatte

Automatically generate ID mattes with support for transparency, depth of field and motion blur, speeding up workflows for compositors.

vrscene-node
V-Ray Scene Node

Import and render animated V-Ray scene (.vrscene) files.

translator-node
V-Ray Translator Node

Use the full power of V-Ray Standalone, including distributed rendering.

denoiser-vray
V-Ray Denoiser

Automatically reduce noise for cleaner renders. Denoise individual render elements, apply noise masks and denoise final deep composites.

Hair Workflows

Render complete 3D creatures and characters directly in Nuke. Import hair geometry using V-Ray proxy objects, and assign V-Ray Hair material for optimized shading.
