Chaos group launched V-ray for Unreal 1 to fetch v-ray scenes from sketchup directly into unreal engine

Chaos recently introduced V-Ray for Unreal 1 to deliver V-Ray scenes from Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya, Trimble SketchUp, and McNeel Rhino directly into Unreal Engine, a series of 3D content development tools from Epic Games that produces photorealistic rendering in real time.

The users will be able to render ray-traced, photorealistic images with V-Ray directly from Unreal.

V-Ray for Unreal Update 1 provides support for native Unreal materials, so anybody having a secured Unreal pipeline can render animations, still images, and more as a whole, with 100% ray-traced precision.

This feature facilitates the designers to avail various V-Ray techniques like photorealistic light baking and interactive rendering, devoid of modifying their workflows.

The update offers specific benefit for CAD users by providing 1:1 support for Datasmith material translations. Datasmith belongs to a collection of tools and plugins which allow the artists and designers importing the data into Unreal Engine; it supports CAD and digital content development sources along with Autodesk 3ds Max.

Update 1 also provides viewport rendering, therefore the users can render interactively, with the effects of light and material adjusts rapidly which are shown in the Unreal viewport. If required, the users can activate V-Ray to generate photorealistic ?beauty shots? and reference checks from inside Unreal. Physically based lighting offers the designers with the most realistic view of how their assets will be demonstrated in a real-world situation.

?V-Ray for Unreal contains improved KPF?s visualization process from offline rendering to VR and AR, facilitating the users to obtain superior, faster results with fewer applications. The light baking functionality facilitates baking large scenes with greater quality. Rendering can be performed on CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs, or a combination thereof.

The light baking (quantifying lighting and shadow effects before time while rendering an object) is now as much as 60% faster, whereas retaining quality levels.

Pricing: V-Ray for Unreal Update 1 is free for existing customers; new seats can be brought $80 (monthly) or $470 (annually). Education pricing of $99 is accessible for students, educators, and universities.
