About V-Ray for Unreal. As one of the world's most popular physically-based renderers, V-Ray is used daily by top design studios, architectural firms, advertising agencies, and visual effects companies around the globe. Chaos Group also noticed the rapid adoption of Unreal Engine by many of these firms to create interactive or immersive experiences, so for them to produce V-Ray for Unreal was a logical step. Having been in beta since March, the full product launch came one week before Autodesk University 2018.

Whether it's architectural visualization, automotive, or visual effects, every industry has its own challenges. The one common need for any artist or designer, though, is a smooth workflow, and reliable results across all their entire toolset. That, and excellent results.

In this case, that smooth workflow means being able to easily repurpose V-Ray scenes created in 3ds Max, Maya, Rhino, or SketchUp in Unreal Engine, without needing to learn new rendering paradigms. With V-Ray for Unreal, lights and materials are automatically converted into their real-time equivalents for UE workflows, but they maintain a smart connection to the originals-so you can continue to create full-quality ray-traced renders directly from the Unreal Editor with the same content.

Importantly, the software also introduces V-Ray Light Baking, enabling artists and designers to bake V-Ray lights (including IES) directly into Unreal with full GPU acceleration, for the highest-quality real-time illumination. This ensures that the lighting in the V-Ray rendering is well matched to the real-time experience in Unreal Engine.

With support for 3ds Max, Revit, and SketchUp Pro (not to mention a wide range of CAD formats), Unreal Studio is an ideal partner to V-Ray for Unreal. Its Datasmith feature set not only provides import capabilities but also data optimization tools, which can be used in parallel with V-Ray for Unreal. Along with Datasmith, it offers one-to-one ticketed support, targeted learning, and industry-relevant templates and assets.
