V-RAY WORKFLOW ACROSS DCC PRODUCTS
V-Ray for Houdini can further enhance 3ds Max, Maya, and Katana workflows with the addition of V-Ray for 3ds Max,
Maya, and Katana. More lighting and shading options can be added during the compositing stage by using V-Ray for Nuke.
V-Ray for Houdini supports VRScans which allows for the most physically accurate materials to be used
Production-proven rendering. Powerful CPU and GPU-accelerated rendering built for the demands of high-end production.
Volume rendering. Fast and accurate rendering of native Houdini volumes and OpenVDB caches.
V-Ray Scene exchange. Transfer and override the properties of V-Ray scenes from other apps like Maya and 3ds Max.
Physical hair. Create realistic-looking hair* with accurate highlights using the V-Ray Physical Hair material. *Currently supports hair as SOP geometry
Instancing. Instance any object type (including volumes) using Packed Primitives, Instancer and “instancepath” attributes.
Particles. Drive shader parameters such as color, alpha and particle size through custom per-point attributes.
Packed primitives. Efficient handling of Houdini’s native packed primitives for instancing at render time.
