Chaos Group releases V-Ray for Unreal,the fastest way for architecture, automotive and visual effects users to create immersive experiences from their V-Ray content. With V-Ray for Unreal, artists and designers can bring V-Ray scenes from 3ds Max, Maya, Rhino and SketchUp directly into the Unreal Editor easily, without needing to learn a new workflow. Once there, users will have access to the full power of V-Ray Next technology, making the process of creating accurate ray-traced visuals possible directly from Unreal Engine.
V-Ray for Unreal consolidates two separate workflows, making it easier to tap into the power of a game engine through a creative process users already know and trust. After designing a scene in V-Ray, V-Ray for Unreal imports every part of the scene file into the Unreal Editor. V-Ray lights and materials are automatically converted into their real-time equivalents and maintain a smart connection to the originals ensuring high-fidelity stills and animations at render time.
The official launch will introduce V-Ray Light Baking, a powerful feature that lets users bake V-Ray lights (including IES) directly into Unreal with full GPU acceleration. Unlike other light baking implementations, V-Ray Light Baking maintains V-Ray accuracy, ensuring a lifelike, physically based result for real-time experiences and VR.
V-Ray for Unreal will also introduce a new pipeline for CAD designers, who want to utilize the power of V-Ray rendering in their designs.
"By combining Datasmith and V-Ray for Unreal, industrial designers can easily add the accuracy of photorealistic ray tracing to their interactive designs without requiring V-Ray in their CAD tool. V-Ray for Unreal Engine unlocks new workflows that will fundamentally change how people visualize and experience their designs," said Ken Pimentel, senior product manager at Epic Games. "Now, all designers can benefit from both real-time interactivity and production-proven ray tracing within the Unreal Editor."
