V-Ray 3.5 for 3ds Max up to 7x faster thanks to new adaptive lights!
Chaos Group released V-Ray 3.5 for 3ds Max, a free update to the leading CPU and GPU renderer. With the addition of nine major features and a number of performance improvements, V-Ray 3.5 is the fastest and most powerful version yet. To solve the long-time challenge of rendering scenes with many lights, Chaos Group's R&D team has written a new Adaptive Lights algorithm that drastically speeds up render times. After extensive testing on architectural interiors and large environments with hundreds or even thousands of lights, benchmarking results show that Adaptive Lights can be up to seven times faster, depending on the scene. Now artists can work with a virtually unlimited amount of light sources, rendering scenes that were previously impossible. The new version also features fully interactive production rendering with immediate feedback; new, physically-accurate reflection model Glossy Fresnel; the ability to stop and continue rendering at any point, preserving work and saving time; Live VR rendering; and more! V-Ray 3.5 for 3ds Max is a free update for all V-Ray 3.x customers. [source]
