Use unbelievably real materials.
Complex materials made simple. Materials that can take you hours to create by hand have been scanned to perfection. Over 1000 pre-made materials that are included and ready to drop into your next project.
Chaos Scans library
The Chaos Scans Library contains a variety of pre-scanned materials ready to be applied to 3D visualizations in 3ds Max, Maya, Rhino, SketchUp, Revit, Cinema 4D, Modo and Houdini. The growing collection includes samples of car paint, fabric, leather, wood, plastic, metal and more. Our extended trial gives you the Chaos Scans plugin and unlimited access to the Chaos Scans library free for 90 days.
Chaos Scans service
If you are working with tight deadlines and need to create many complex 3D materials for automotive, product design or fashion projects then the Chaos Scans service is the perfect match for you. We scan your physical material samples to create a highly accurate, ultra-photorealistic digital material for use in 3D projects.
More than textures
Chaos Scans provides a photorealistic level of quality and real-world responses to lighting conditions.
Stock or custom
Chaos Scans shine right out of the box. Use them as perfect copies of real materials, or as accurate references to build your own.
Photorealism with a simple drag-and-drop. Shaders that took hours to perfect are now ready in a couple of clicks.
Chaos Scans are engineered by the same team that created V-Ray. The two products work together seamlessly.
Choose from а wide variety of ready to use materials. Or send us your own samples and we can scan them for you.
Part of V-Ray Collection
A great asset to help you with your V-Ray visualizations. Included in the ultimate
3D rendering and simulation toolset.
Chaos Scans are now compatible with V-Ray GPU for increased performance and flexibility.
Chaos Scans materials can now capture translucency in volumetric materials with varying thickness.
Chaos Scans uses high-quality hardware to capture the material’s texture in exceptional quality. No loss of detail, fidelity, or color.
Chaos Scans are created from thousands of images, capturing a material's bidirectional texture function (BTF), recreating a material's true surface appearance and response to light.
Chaos Scans now support separation into several render elements: clear coat reflections, direct light, indirect lighting by spawned rays, opacity and received caustics stored.
Chaos scans mateirals can now be applied by proprietary triplannar mapping, which removes the need for explicit UV mapping.
Easy to use
Chaos Scans require no prior material-building knowledge, or use of reference materials.
Chaos Scans materials repeat without joins.
Fine-tune the appearance of materials directly in Max or Maya.
Built for V-Ray
Render with V-Ray directly from your preferred content creation platform. Now available in 3ds Max, Maya, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, Modo and Houdini.
Render a wide variety of physical materials including plastic, leather, stone, metal, wood, and fabric.
