V-Ray Nuke 30 Day Evaluation

The V-Ray for NUKE 30 Day Evaluation grants full access to V-Ray 3.7 for NUKE for 30 days with no charge. Experience V-Ray for NUKE in its entirety with no purchase. V-Ray for NUKE integrates photorealistic ray traced rendering to produce high caliber content including your lighting and compositing renderings. The combination of NUKE’s Industry standard compositing package and V-Ray’s production quality ray traced render gives artists and designers the best of both worlds.

Key Differentiators

  • Quality: Top artists and studios use V-Ray every day to render world-class imagery and visual effects.

  • Power: V-Ray adds production proven lighting, shading and rendering capabilities to NUKE’s powerful compositing toolset.

  • Speed: Make look development decisions on the fly and save time. Render directly in post and output final frames more quickly. Creative control: V-Ray for NUKE gives you full control over lighting, shadows, reflections and more – without the need to send it back to 3D.

  • Smart integration: V-Ray fits seamlessly into NUKE’s native node-based workflow.

For compositors V-Ray for NUKE

  • Expands the 3D capabilities of NUKE, so compositors can light, render, and composite in one application.
  • Gives compositors better control over lighting, materials, render passes, and final shot output.
  • Lets compositors create any render element they need on the fly, such asrender passes and mattes
  • Allows compositors to adjust and match 2D and 3D elements simultaneously.
  • Gives compositors more creative freedom and artistic control.
  • Offers a familiar node-based workflow, which makes it easier to adopt.

Major Features

Powerful Ray Traced Rendering

V-Ray for NUKE brings powerful adaptive ray traced rendering to any compositing pipeline. It's the most full-featured rendering solution for NUKE, NUKEX and NUKE Studio

Node-Based Integration

With a full suite of advanced rendering tools and support for NUKE's native features, V-Ray for NUKE is a natural evolution of the compositing workflow.

Accurate Lighting

Simulate realistic ray traced lighting and shadows with a wide range of light types including spot lights, area lights, HDR environments, NUKE lights and more.

Other Key Features

  • Add VRayVolumeGrid node: Load caches with simulated volumetric data and tweak how they render inside NUKE.
  • Support for VRayDenoiser and Denoiser Render element: Denoise images within NUKE, and take advantage of additional channels generated from V-Ray.

  • Improved Deep Rendering: V-Ray for NUKE now generates better deep data that can be further composited in NUKE's deep workflow.

  • Support for TriPlanar Texture: Quickly assign bitmap and other 2D textures on objects that don't have suitable UV coordinates.

  • Support for Light Cache: V-Ray's signature light cache, which speeds up global illumination, is accessible in V-Ray for NUKE.

  • VRayFalloff texture: The resulting map can simulate the falloff of opacity, reflection, and refraction for surfaces where these properties vary depending on the surface's angle to the camera, such as curved glass or water.

  • Improved Render Elements integration: Now it's easier to match and composite channels with render elements rendered in V-Ray for NUKE.

  • VRayClipper node: VRayClipper is a geometric primitive that can clip away parts of the scene with a simple plane or defined mesh object. It is a render-time effect and does not modify the actual scene geometry in any way.

Online Licensing

Chaos Group now offers 2 licensing options: Dongle Licensing and Online Licensing.

With online licensing there is no wait to receive a physical dongle, and licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. Online licensing is fast and secure, and your customers will be able to access their new software much faster – without the back and forth of WBC and RTU files.

Please note that for now online licensing is available only for purchases of new licenses.
