Sofia, Bulgaria / Aug 2015 – Chaos Group launches V-Ray for NUKE, a new approach to lighting and compositing that integrates production-quality ray traced rendering into NUKE and NUKEX. Compositors can now take advantage of V-Ray’s lighting, shading and rendering tools inside NUKE’s node-based workflow.

V-Ray for NUKE brings the same technology used on Game of Thrones, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and hundreds of other film, commercial and television projects to professional compositors.

“V-Ray for NUKE gives me the creative freedom I’ve always wanted as a compositor; it’s addictive,” said Shahin Toosi, lighting and senior compositor at Lipsync VFX. “I can work on lighting and comp at the same time and see the results right away. There’s no more waiting for a test render to come back from other departments. It’s definitely a faster workflow.”

V-Ray for NUKE gives compositors the ability to adjust lighting, materials and render elements all the way up until final shot delivery. Full control of 3D scenes in NUKE lets compositors match 2D footage and 3D renders simultaneously. For environments and set extension work, this cuts out the traditional back and forth that costs studios valuable time.
