Photorealistic Ray Tracer Adds Denoiser Masking, Cylindrical Decals and More to Streamline the Visualization Process
Today, Chaos releases V-Ray 6 for 3ds Max, update 1, bringing post-processing upgrades, advanced decal tools and time-saving GPU enhancements to the most complete rendering solution in the world. With more control, artists and designers can keep meeting a level of 3D demand that shows no signs of slowing down.
New masking support for Lens Effects and Denoiser layers gives 3D artists even more say over how their images come together. Whether it’s applying Lens Effects to specific lights and materials, or smoothing out part of the image, designers can now personalize their renders even faster. While in post, users can also start fine-tuning V-Ray Light Materials with Light Mix, making it easier to edit self-illuminating objects in a scene – even after rendering is complete.
For product visualizations and surfaces, update 1 brings cylindrical and bump upgrades to V-Ray Decal. Designers can now easily add anything to curved surfaces, from stickers and labels to surface imperfections. Bottles, jars, rockets, helmets, tanks – Decal’s projection will cover any curve in a few clicks. Additive bumps have also been added, so artists can blend surface and decal bumps to make highly realistic embossed logos, lettering, cracked paint, spray effects and more.
