With new Viewport rendering, you can easily select and render multiple regions at once, and quickly blend between your V-Ray render and SketchUp model using +/- hotkeys to control opacity.

Powerful GPU Rendering

POWERFUL GPU RENDERING

Faster, more powerful GPU rendering with added support for aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows, and more.

GPU Hybrid

HYBRID GPU+CPU RENDERING

V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.

Adaptive Lights D

ADAPTIVE LIGHTS

For scenes with lots of lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you cut render times by up to 700%.

Smart UI

SMART UI

The entire V-Ray for SketchUp interface is now cleaner and simpler, with better support for 4K monitors.
