Chaos Group has released V-Ray Next for Revit, bringing the latest V-Ray technology stack to the popular BIM (Building Information Modeling) software platform. Architects can now tap the rendering power within their favorite design platform, utilizing dozens of new features and improvements.

“We’ve distilled four years of R&D into a tool that will instantly make sense to architects, so they can save more time as they move from concept to construction,” said Ana Lyubenova, product specialist for Revit at Chaos Group. “V-Ray Next is not just the next step in our evolution, it’s helping Revit do things it couldn’t do before.”

A Better Revit with V-Ray Next

“We’ve distilled four years of R&D into a tool that will instantly make sense to architects, so they can save more time as they move from concept to construction,” said Ana Lyubenova, product specialist for Revit at Chaos Group. “V-Ray Next is not just the next step in our evolution, it’s helping Revit do things it couldn’t do before.”

V-Ray Next for Revit is now out and available for the leading BIM software.

The new version features a new Asset Editor where users can create, edit, save and manage V-Ray materials all in one single place. With the Appearance Manager Revit, assets can be switched to photoreal V-Ray assets at render time to keep BIM models unaffected and clean. And lighting analysis tools enable architects to evaluate real-world lux values from daylight and fixtures to determine the true illumination levels of a design.

The V-Ray Next for Revit is now up to 50 percent faster with improvements to GPU rendering offering another 200 percent, further extending through V-Ray’s new Adaptive Dome Light, which can show improvements up to 2x. The V-Ray Physical Camera can now set the camera exposure and white balance automatically. There are new lens effects and a real-time AI-based Denoiser.

Revit Decals enable users to render paintings, signs, screens and more. Direct render saves to a Revit project are possible from the V-Ray frame buffer. These and other improvements, including a redesigned toolbar with new icons, make the new V-Ray Next for Revit a much more compelling user experience.

“V-Ray Next for Revit elevates our design process, helping us achieve professional-grade renders straight out of Revit,” said Miguel Colina, Architectural Designer at Robert A.M. Stern Architects. “Thanks to its photorealistic lighting and proxy implementation, we can save time in post-production and focus on our design intent.”
