Exocortex launches V-Ray cloud rendering in Clara.io

Exocortex has officially launched V-Ray cloud rendering within Clara.io, its ambitious browser-based 3D modelling and animation package, following a lengthy ‘soft launch’ period.

Clara.io’s implementation of V-Ray features “one-click scene setup”, support for proxy objects, background rendering, a library of over 1,000 preset materials, and support for .vismat and .vrmat material presets.

Exocortex has also just launched its own 3DStream technology, which embeds interactive V-Ray cloud render streams into web pages, and “opens up a new frontier of consumer pre-purchase experiences”.

Clara.io is still officially in beta. The service is free to use, and runs on any modern browser.
