SIG’18: Chaos Group Launches V-Ray Cloud at SIGGRAPH 2018

V-Ray just got a whole lot better—now introducing V-Ray Cloud for accelerated rendering from all V-Ray product lines.


From Vancouver, Canada, today Chaos Group announced V-Ray Cloud at the annual SIGGRAPH convention for computer graphics. The conference runs essentially through the week.

V-Ray Cloud is a new push-button rendering service for artists and designers. Today the company is announcing the service and launching it in beta form.

V-Ray Cloud

For a limited time, V-Ray Cloud will be a completely free cloud rendering service that anyone can try out to see how it works. It is powered by Google Cloud, so designers and visualization pros have access to highly secure, on-demand systems for high-performance 3D rendering.

Key Takeaways

V-Ray Cloud will bring simplified highly accelerated, cloud-based rendering to every single V-Ray product line, offering acceleration optionality to all types of V-Ray users, from visualization pros in studios to architects working on renderings in firms. 

V-Ray Cloud can turn your workstation into a supercomputer, unlocking the unlimited power of the cloud to help users hit deadlines and render faster than ever before. V-Ray Cloud will remain free throughout its beta period.

01 – V-Ray Cloud was introduced at SIGGRAPH 2018 this week.

How fast will V-Ray Cloud be? The company says that in the time it takes to render a single frame, V-Ray Cloud can render an entire animation. It can do this without having to track assets, juggle licenses or set up virtual machines.

V-Ray Cloud Details—Apps Supported

V-Ray Cloud will be integrated into all V-Ray products, bringing a rapid speed boost to artists and designers who really need to get their work done faster. Key features include:

  • Google Cloud Power — V-Ray Cloud is currently deployed on the Google Cloud Platform, providing a highly secure, scalable system for on-demand, high-performance rendering.
  • Smart Sync — Automatic scene updates for new changes, ensuring fast upload times and renders.
  • Smart Vault — An optimized storage system keeps assets in the cloud for use in future projects.
  • Remote Control — Job settings can be changed and resubmitted from any device, without opening the scene.

V-Ray Cloud is now open to all beta testers. Apply now to try free cloud rendering for a limited time.

Demoing at SIGGRAPH 2018

Chaos Group will be demoing V-Ray Cloud at SIGGRAPH 2018 in the Google booth (#1423) on August 14 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on August 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. To see a demo or schedule a meeting with Chaos Group at the show, please contact: [email protected].
