What's New in V-Ray 6 for SketchUp

V-Ray & Enscape compatibility
With V-Ray 6, you can transfer your real-time scenes from Enscape and continue building on your work to take it to the highest possible level of photorealism. With support for Enscape materials, lights and compatible 3D models, V-Ray ensures that all design decisions are kept throughout the project.

V-Ray Enmesh
Create complex geometric patterns over object surfaces to make panels, fences, fabrics, and more in an automated and memory-efficient way.

Share your work and collaborate on the cloud. With Chaos Cloud Collaboration you can upload your images and panoramas straight from the V-Ray Frame Buffer and significantly speed up the approval process.

Distance Texture
Vary effects such as displacement or procedural fur based on proximity to create a realistic correlation between the elements in your composition. Create a well-trodden path through your procedural lawn, or form dark spots under downspouts.

Iridescent materials
Easily create iridescent materials such as soap bubbles, oil spills, and more with the new Thin Film option available in the V-Ray Material.

Finite Dome Light Mode
Fine-tune the scale and add depth to the environment of your project when using image-based lighting with this new V-Ray Dome Light mode.
