V-Ray 3.0 for Softimage is now available as a free update for all current V-Ray for Softimage users. V-Ray 3.0 for Softimage also includes several new features.
Here are just a few new items:
• Progressive Image Sampler - Faster feedback for artists with this powerful upgrade to the path-tracing engine. V-Ray 3.0 also allows you to cache scene assets between renders for even faster iterations.
• New Skin Shader - V-Ray 3.0 introduces the VRaySkinMtl. With artist-friendly controls, the VRaySkinMtl is a dedicated skin shader with built in Subsurface Scattering and layered reflections.
• Render Mask - Render Mask uses either an object selection, object IDs, or a Render Mask property to control the exact pixels to be rendered.
