What's New in V-Ray 6 for 3ds Max

Lighting Analysis Tools
Accurately measure the light levels in your scene using the lighting analysis tools.

Atmospheric Light Contribution Control
Improved control to speed up your lighting setup. Easily tweak how much an individual light illuminates the environment fog around it.

Auto-translation of Physical Materials
Autodesk's Physical Materials are auto-translated to V-Ray materials without additional conversions.

Clipper with Render-Time Booleans
Create complex cutaways and sections using any mesh object.

Pixel-perfect masks in the V-Ray Frame Buffer
Make pixel-perfect adjustments to your image without re-rendering. You can now use any of V-Ray's masking render elements—Cryptomatte, MultiMatte, and Object/ Render/ Material IDs—to select and fine-tune parts of your render.

Adaptive Lights
Faster, cleaner and more accurate rendering in scenes containing many lights and image-based environment lighting.

Physically Based Materials
From multilayered car paint to accurate subsurface scattering and in the aLsurface shader, you can create any material imaginable.

Finite Dome Light Mode
Elevate your HDRI environment renders with the new, more flexible ground projection capabilities of the V-Ray Dome Light. Set the scale of a dome light, and have full control over blend settings with the new finite mode.
