V-Ray for Rhino offers visualization professionals a state-of-the-art solution that generates high-quality images of unparalleled realism. The plug-in works with Robert McNeel & Associates’ Rhinoceros, which is one of the most popular Windows-based NURBS modeling tools available today.
Rhino users in all fields – from engineering and product design to 3D animation – rely on V-Ray as a quick, easy and cost efficient way to render their most cutting-edge images.

V-Ray RT® – Interactive responses and a streamlined scene composition with GPU ray tracing up to 30 times faster from directly inside the Rhino viewport.
V-Ray Wrapper Material – Can be used to specify additional properties per material. You can now create true matte materials which show the background as opposed to the base material.
HDR Light Studio Support* – Live connection to HDR Light Studio with Light Paint feature accessed directly within Rhino, providing the most intuitive and creative way to light a design.
*The V-Ray for Rhino HDR Light Studio live connection is only supported on Rhino 5 64-bit and requires a license of HDR Light Studio 4.3 or higher.
Dome Light – create simple, artifact-free image-based lighting using the Dome Light. Its powerful importance sampling analyzes HDR images and optimizes light tracing and GI precision.
V-Ray Proxy – an indispensable tool for managing scene memory and efficiently rendering massive amounts of geometry. V-Ray Proxy objects are dynamically loaded and unloaded at render-time, saving vital RAM resources.
Lens Effects (Glare / Bloom ) – simulate the natural lens effects that occur when photographing highlights.
Dispersion – trace and refract light based on its wavelength.
