Real-time rendering

With V-Ray Vision, you get real-time high-quality visual feedback of your model as you build it. Additionally, you can easily export images or 360 panoramas. Materials, cameras and lighting set up in V-Ray Vision can easily be scaled to photorealism.

Take your Revit renders to the next level. With the Appearance Manager, you can set basic Revit assets to automatically switch to more realistic V-Ray assets at render time.

Frame Buffer

Track history of your rendered images, fine-tune their color parameters and save them directly to your Revit project.

 
 
Lighting
House_night_01_Revit_Next.jpg
Accurate lighting

Simulate any type of natural, artificial, or image-based lighting.V-Ray automatically converts all Revit lights to V-Ray ones and further extends Revit's lighting capabilities.

vray-revit-lighting.jpg
Light mixing

This lighting algorithm dramatically speeds up rendering in scenes containing many lights.

Adaptive_Dome2_1380x760_Revit.jpg
Adaptive lights

Render image-based lighting much faster with the new Adaptive Dome Light. It’s exceptionally quick for interiors and substantially speeds up your rendering.

Light_Analysis_1380x760_Revit.jpg
Lighting analysis

Easily visualize real-world illumination values (lux) with the new Lighting Analysis render element.

V-Ray_5_for_Revit_feature_-_improved_sky
Sun & Sky

Take advantage of our improved sky model to present your design in its best light when the sun is at the horizon. Alternatively, use the sky generation parameters for full creative control.

vray-revit-lighting.jpeg
Global Illumination

Render photorealistic rooms and interiors with powerful and fast global illumination.

Camera
Real-world cameras

Work like a photographer, with controls for exposure, white balance, depth of field and more.

Automatic exposure & white balance

Capture the perfect exposure every time. The new Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance camera controls make rendering as simple as point and shoot.

Lens effects

Add that extra touch of photorealism with real-world camera lens effects such as bloom and glare.
