V-Ray render farms

Why choose a V-Ray render farm?

V-Ray, by Chaos, is a top-notch architectural rendering and visualisation software. It’s used to create high-quality 3D visualizations in multiple industries such as product design, furniture and even 3D art.  The first version of V-Ray came out in 2000 and it has been updated and improved over the years so that it works as a plugin for over 10 kinds of software. V-Ray offers two rendering engines: CPU and GPU. The CPU version of the V-Ray renderer is simply called “V-Ray”, while the GPU version is called “V-Ray GPU”. V-Ray can integrate with 3ds Max, Sketchup, Maya, Rhino 3D, Unreal, Nuke, Cinema 4D, Houdini, Blender and so on.

Sometimes it can take a long time to render your work with just the rendering engine, so using a cloud rendering farm speeds up the process. Chaos offers V-Ray Benchmark – a performance measurement tool that assesses the hardware’s speed specifically when working with V-Ray. The benchmark includes two test scenes: one for V-Ray and another one for V-Ray GPU.

5 features of V-Ray rendering

  1. Need for additional hardware if your project is complex and needs to be processed within a short amount of time.
  2. Render times can be long without efficient hardware, render farms offer superior speed and performance.
  3. V-Ray GPU takes advantage of the graphics card, but it relies on the CPU.
  4. V-Ray GPU is not officially supported on macOS; choosing a render farm using GPU solves this.
  5. Since GPU technology is still far behind in terms of memory, using V-Ray GPU render engine requires an efficient NVIDIA graphics card.

System requirements for V-Ray

  • Processor: 1st Gen Intel® Core™ or compatible processor with SSE4.2 support (x64)
  • RAM: Minimum 8 GB RAM, recommended 64 GB RAM
  • Operating system: Windows 10 or Windows 11 operating system.
  • Autodesk® 3ds Max: 3ds Max® 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 (64-bit)
  • GPU Acceleration: NVIDIA GPUs of Maxwell generation or later with the latest recommended video driver (for both CUDA and RTX – enabled cards). V-Ray Vision requires a Graphics card with DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 and Shader Model 5.0 capabilities.
