Chaos Group has released V-Ray 1.5 for Rhino, bringing a range of advanced rendering options to users of Robert McNeel & Associates’ industrial modelling software.
Many of the new tools will be familiar to anyone who has been following updates to V-Ray for 3ds Max over the past few years, including the V-Ray RT real-time preview renderer, V-Ray Proxy and the VRayDirt shader.
The update also adds support for dome, sphere and IES lights; dispersion; ambient occlusion; and lens bloom.
V-Ray 1.5 for Rhino is available now for Rhino 4.0 on Windows 2000 and above. Beta versions of Rhino 5.0 are supported in a ‘results may vary’ kind of way; but there’s no OS X version yet.
A single licence has a MSRP of $960.
