What's New in V-Ray Next Build 4.20.01 for SketchUp




V-Ray Next Build 4.20.01 for SketchUp comes with several new features and improvements that make rendering your SketchUp creations easier than ever. Here are some of the highlights:


  • RTX support: You can now boost your V-Ray GPU performance with NVIDIA RTX technology, which utilizes the ray tracing capabilities of the latest NVIDIA graphics cards. This means faster and more accurate rendering results with less noise.



  • Proxies with materials: You can now import or create a proxy mesh asset and V-Ray will automatically generate a set of material slots, making it easier to manage materials. A proxy mesh is a simplified representation of a complex object that reduces the memory usage and render time of your scene.



  • Color assistant: You can now choose the exact color you need with the right hue, saturation and value variation with the Color Assistant, V-Ray Color Picker's new extension. This tool helps you create harmonious color schemes and avoid color clashes.



  • Improved materials: The underlying shading structure of all scene materials has been optimized, so advanced attributes can now be added or removed without cluttering the material properties. You can also use the new VRscans material, which includes a triplanar texture projection mode, removing the need for UV mapping of objects that use the material. VRscans are realistic scanned materials that offer unmatched realism and quality.



  • Unified installer: You can now enjoy a smooth, single-step installation of all the components included in the V-Ray package. You don't have to worry about installing separate modules or plugins anymore.



  • Color themes: You can now choose between two color themes for the V-Ray user interface: Dark or Bright. The Bright theme is a new option that offers a lighter and more contrasted look.



  • Partial scene export: You can now export only the current selection as a .vrscene file containing its applied materials, lights and other V-Ray special objects. This feature is useful for transferring parts of your scene to another application or rendering service.
