WHAT'S NEW
See what's new in V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp
 
VIEWPORT RENDERING            POWERFUL GPU RENDERING         HYBRID GPU+CPU RENDERING         ADAPTIVE LIGHTS        
With new Viewport rendering, you can easily select and render multiple regions at once, and quickly blend between your V-Ray render and SketchUp model using +/- hotkeys to control opacity.
Faster, more powerful GPU rendering with added support for aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows, and more.
V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.
For scenes with lots of lights, the new Adaptive Lights mode can help you cut render times by up to 700%.
The entire V-Ray for SketchUp interface is now cleaner and simpler, with better support for 4K monitors.
Manage all of your scene files in one place. Set file paths, create scene archives, and keep track of assets like textures, IES files, and proxy objects.
New color picker that’s simple and powerful. Select color values in Screen sRGB (0–255) or Rendering (0.0–1.0) color space.
Import and render V-Ray scenes (.vrscene) from other applications such as 3ds Max, Rhino, and Revit.
SMART UI                     FILE MANAGER                 V-RAY COLOR PICKER                          V-RAY SCENE IMPORT
SUNLIGHT STUDIES               FOG                                     NEW TEXTURE MAPS                              2D DISPLACEMENT
Create sunlight & shadow studies with SketchUp sun animation.
Give your scenes depth with new realistic 3D fog and light scattering effects.
Fine-tune the look of your scene with new gradient, color temperature and procedural noise texture maps.
Quickly add surface detail without extra modeling with optimized 2D displacement — perfect for architectural materials like brick and stone.
ANIMATED PROXY OBJECTS              PROXY PREVIEWS                BETTER VIEWPORT MATERIALS                   BETTER DENOISING
Easily add pre-animated 3D objects like walking people and trees blowing in the wind with animated V-Ray proxies.
Control the look of V-Ray proxies in the SketchUp viewport. Select from Whole mesh, Bounding box, Point (Origin), and the new low poly Proxy preview mode.
Get a more accurate preview of your V-Ray materials in the SketchUp viewport.
The V-Ray Denoiser is now easier to set up and you can refine settings even after you render.
Free update for V-Ray 3.x for SketchUp customers.
Now compatible with SketchUp 2018.
