Learn how easy it is to stage your scene with Chaos Cosmos assets. Render them as they are or customize their materials to suit your project. You’ll also learn tips about the optimal way to share Cosmos-rich scenes with your colleagues.

How to explore your scenes in real-time with V-Ray Vision

Find out how to make the most of V-Ray’s lightweight viewer in your everyday work. Navigate your scenes like a game. Set up exposure and temporal anti-aliasing for best visual fidelity. Visualise Chaos Cosmos assets without overloading your hardware. Quickly and easily export animations, flythroughs, simulations and more.

How to use custom HDRI libraries in Light Gen

Use your collected HDRIs to light your scenes with Light Gen. Pick your favorite skies and light up your designs in seconds. Creating different lighting scenarios has never been easier.

Getting started with Chaos Vantage

Take your design to the next level with Chaos Vantage. The new live link takes even your most complex scenes to pure ray-traced real-time with zero setup. Navigate and interact with your model’s true lighting and materials, and create animations, flythroughs, simulations and more, with ease.

Applying Chaos Cosmos materials in your scene

Chaos’ curated collection of render-ready V-Ray content adds a new category — materials. Make use of an extensive range of tiles, wooden floors, brick walls, and more. Use the Cosmos materials out-of-the-box or customize their color, bump, gloss, and more.

How to build realistic terrain with Scatter

Use the new scattering tool to quickly and easily add extensive entourage. Add hundreds, thousands, or even millions of Chaos Cosmos models and objects to any surface without encumbering SketchUp or Vision. Control their density, size and orientation and create realistic terrain for your exterior scenes.

How to work with V-Ray Decal

With V-Ray Decal you can add realistic detail to any surface material. Stack them upon one another, project them over multiple scene objects, and invest time in creativity, not additional UVW work.

The new live link takes even your most complex scenes to pure ray-traced real-time with zero setup. Navigate and interact with your model’s true lighting and materials, and create animations and images with ease.  MORE INFO
