Introducing Chaos Vantage.
(previously Project Lavina)

Explore your most complex 3D production scenes ray traced in real-time. With Chaos® Vantage, there are no time-consuming conversions. Simply drag and drop your complete V-Ray scene into Vantage and start exploring. There’s also a direct live link available from 3ds Max, so you can use it just like a viewport.


Chaos Vantage requires an NVIDIA RTX series GPU.

Features

Zero setup.

Drag and drop your V-Ray® scene into Chaos Vantage and start exploring. Unlike other real-time solutions, there’s no geometry to optimize, UVs to unwrap, or lighting to bake.

Go big!

Chaos Vantage is built to handle huge scenes and billions of polygons. It’s the fastest way for you to see your most detailed V-Ray scenes in real-time.

Easy to navigate.

Navigating your scene is easy. Use controls similar to your 3D app, or move around just like playing a game. Walk up stairs and avoid walking through walls with automatic collision detection.

100% ray-traced quality.

With fully raytraced and real-time rendering, Chaos Vantage uses physically based cameras, lights, materials, and global illumination for the most realistic results. 

Simple and fast animation.

Perfect for previsualization, you can create, edit, and render animation right from Chaos Vantage. Easily animate between cameras, apply transitions, arrange your sequence in the Animation Editor.

I use Chaos Vantage to get a very fast and high-quality overview of lighting design and materials while discussing architectural concepts

with my colleagues. It's very easy to use which is important to me while working in a high-pace environment.
