Unbelievably real materials

Ready-to-use materials for your V-Ray 3D projects.

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.

Faster workflow

Photorealism with a simple drag-and-drop. Shaders that took hours to perfect are now ready in a couple of clicks.

V-Ray native

Chaos Scans are engineered by the same team that created V-Ray. The two products work together seamlessly.

Wide choice

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.

Key features

GPU support

Chaos Scans are now compatible with V-Ray GPU for increased performance and flexibility.

Volumetric translucency

Chaos Scans materials can now capture translucency in volumetric materials with varying thickness.

Incredibly photoreal

Chaos Scans uses high-quality hardware to capture the material’s texture in exceptional quality. No loss of detail, fidelity, or color.

Physically accurate

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.

Render Elements

Chaos Scans now support separation into several render elements: clear coat reflections, direct light, indirect lighting by spawned rays, opacity and received caustics stored.

Triplannar mapping

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.

Seamlessly tileable

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.

Physical materials

Render a wide variety of physical materials including plastic, leather, stone, metal, wood, and fabric.

Car paints

Simulate the look of highly-detailed car paint, complete with orange peel and clear coat.

Reflective & holographic materials

Render complex reflective and holographic surfaces.

Translucent materials

The industry's first technology capable of scanning & rendering translucent materials.
