Real-time and photoreal rendering in one.
V-Ray® for Revit is a versatile visualization toolset that brings you the best of both worlds—real-time visualization and photorealistic rendering. It’s everything all in one. And all in Revit. From beginner to pro, Chaos® V-Ray has all the tools you need to visualize your Revit projects from start to finish.
See your designs in real-time.
Visualizing your Revit projects in real-time has never been easier. Now with V-Ray Vision, you can see your designs in real-time while you work in Revit. Move around your model, apply materials, set up lights and cameras—all with a live real-time view of your model.
Rendering that’s as real as it gets.
See exactly how your project will look. With true-to-life lights, cameras, and materials, rendering with V-Ray is as real as it gets. It's as close as you can come to the real thing before it’s built.
Bring your models to life.
Choose from an array of high-quality 3D assets—including detailed models of furniture, trees, cars, and people—to bring your project to life. The all-new Chaos Cosmos asset browser lets you easily place render-ready content right into your Revit model.
V-Ray and Revit are the perfect team.
Revit is the world's most widely used BIM software for architecture and design. And V-Ray is the world's #1 rendering software for architectural visualization. The two together are the perfect combination to take your designs and presentations to the next level.
See what's new.
V-Ray 5 for Revit now includes V-Ray Vision for real-time visualization. An intuitive new Light Mix tool to simplify how you light your model. A new V-Ray Frame Buffer where you can fine-tune and finish your renders. Plus over 650 3D assets you can place in exteriors and interiors.
With V-Ray Vision, you get real-time high-quality visual feedback of your model as you build it. Additionally, you can easily export images or 360 panoramas. Materials, cameras and lighting set up in V-Ray Vision can easily be scaled to photorealism.
Render-ready 3D assets
Our integrated asset library, Chaos Cosmos, enables you to search and add render-ready objects to your model directly in Revit. With accurate scale, automatic LODs and interoperability across 3ds Max, SketchUp and Rhino, Chaos Cosmos assets are an essential addition to any Revit pipeline.
CPU, GPU & Hybrid rendering
V-Ray comes with two powerful rendering engines. You can choose between super-fast GPU and CPU or Hybrid rendering to best suit your project needs and requirements.
The NVIDIA AI Denoiser uses artificial intelligence to remove noise in an instant. And the V-Ray Denoiser supports denoising individual render channels to simplify compositing.
Render interactively while you design. Fine-tune lights, materials and cameras and see the results right away.
Rendering on the Cloud is just one click away.
Powerful and scalable distributed rendering system that's simple and fast. Get an extra speed boost with V-Ray Render nodes.
Choose from many unique beauty, utility and matte passes to give you more control over your rendered images in compositing.
Automatically analyzes your scene to optimize rendering so you get the best quality in less time.
Set up individual lighting, mood, and composition per view in the same Revit model. Easily share render settings across teams and projects.
Leave V-Ray to render your project images while you are away. Batch rendering helps you schedule multiple views for rendering with a click of a button.
V-Ray adds extra realism to Revit’s Solar Study. Explore and visualize the impact of natural light and shadows on your designs across a variety of timespans.
Please make sure that your system fulfills theserequirements before installing V-Ray. Note that V-Ray is only supported for 64bit operating systems and 64 bit versions of Revit.
