As V-Ray 2.0 for 3ds Max officially begins shipping, the Chaos Group has released a set of ten new videos showing off features of the updated rendering package.
Highlights include the new stereoscopic rig and the Light Select workflow, which enables artists to adjust the contribution of individual lights to a scene without re-rendering, similar to Maxwell Render’s Multilight feature.
Other videos show off additions that will be welcome to long-term V-Ray users, including proper dispersion and a new car paint material. All very cool stuff. Check out the videos below.
