More precision in post

Any mask render element from V-Ray can be used to select and colour correct specific areas of the rendered image directly in the VFB.  

Faster denoising for CPU

The new Open Image Denoise engine is perfect for interactive rendering and because it runs on any CPU configuration, you are not constrained to specific hardware. 

New possibilities in V-Ray Vision

Transparent material reflections

Surfaces such as glass or water now reflect other scene objects in screen space. 

Improved anti-aliasing

Finer texture details and small geometric elements like plants or facade ornaments are presented with better clarity with the new Temporal Anti-aliasing method.

Triplanar textures and randomization support

You can now take advantage of the Triplanar texture projection  and Stochastic texture randomization features in Vision.

Soft Sun shadows

Objects cast soft shadows depending on the Sun Light size multiplier when the new high quality shadows mode is enabled.
