V-Ray for Houdini beta выпущен

Chaos Group выпустила бета-версию V-Ray для Houdini. Возможности, доступные в этой первой бета-версии, включают:

  • GPU & CPU Rendering – GPU & CPU rendering capabilities for high-speed look development and final frame rendering.
  • Volume Rendering – Illumination and rendering of VDB volumes through the V-Ray Volume Grid. Support for Houdini volumes and MacOS are coming soon.
  • V-Ray Scene Support – Transfer and manipulate the properties of V-Ray scenes from applications such as Maya and 3ds Max.
  • Alembic Support – Full support for Alembic workflows including transformations, instancing and per object material overrides.
  • Physical Hair – New Physical Hair shader renders realistic-looking hair with accurate highlights. Only hair as SOP geometry is supported currently.
  • Particles – Drive shader parameters such as colour, alpha and particle size through custom, per-point attributes.
  • Packed Primitives – Handling of Houdini’s native packed primitives at render time.
  • Material Stylesheets – Full support for material overrides based on groups, bundles and attributes. VEX and per-primitive string overrides such as texture randomization are planned for launch.
  • Instancing – Supports copying any object type (including volumes) using Packed Primitives, Instancer, and “instancepath” attribute.
  • Light Instances – Instancing of lights is supported, with options for per-instance overrides of the light parameters and constant storage of light link settings.
