About V-Ray Next for Autodesk 3ds Max. A major overhaul of V-Ray's two-decades-old code base, V-Ray Next promises a boost in overall rendering performance of "up to 25 percent", according to Chaos Group CTO Vlado Koylazov.

The speed gains are augmented by two of V-Ray Next's key changes: new 'Scene Intelligence' features designed to simplify the set-up of complex scenes, and V-Ray GPU, its new GPU rendering architecture.

Other key features include Nvidia's AI-based OptiX render denoiser, a new physiologically plausible hair shader, a new V-Ray Switch material for look dev work, and a scene lighting analysis system.

Pipeline improvements include support for layered Alembic files, and the V-Ray Plugin material and texture, which enable users to load any material or texture from the standalone edition of the renderer.
