Eye candy: Chaos Group’s 2017 V-Ray Showreel

Chaos Group has released its 2017 V-Ray Showreel: its latest annual round-up of the best visual effects and game cinematics work created using the renderer.

Of the movies featured, the biggest is undoubtedly Rogue One, in the shape of ILM’s visual effects, although Scanline VFX’s impressive city destruction scenes from Independence Day: Resurgence also make the cut.

There are also some high-profile broadcast projects, like Aaron Sims Creative’s work on Stranger Things, and some great commercials: you can watch a breakdown of Unit Image’s standout spot for Canal here.

It’s also interesting to see some more stylised work in there, like Buck’s spot for Sherwin-Williams – and, as ever, some of the highlights come from cinematics: particularly Blur Studio’s character trailers for Far Cry 5.
