Review: V-Ray for Blender


Curious about V-Ray? Kent Trammell gives a brief overview and lists pros and cons.

Blender is officially friends with an industry titan.

V-Ray is an industry-standard commercial render engine with a long history and water-tight reputation. It’s an extremely versatile renderer with widespread use in architectural visualization, animation, game cinematics, VFX, advertising, and more. If you have any doubts about V-Ray’s capability, watch “Above Everything Else” by Alex Roman or the latest V-Ray Showreel.

And now Blender is officially supported for V-Ray by Chaos Group, thanks to Andrey Izrantsev!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
