V-Ray 3.6 includes a streamlined UI, viewport rendering, more powerful GPU rendering, new hybrid rendering, and support for SketchUp 2018.
The entire V-Ray for SketchUp interface is now cleaner and simpler, with better support for 4K monitors.
Viewport rendering (VPR)
Render live directly in the SketchUp viewport. 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.
Powerful GPU & hybrid rendering
V-Ray 3.6 for SketchUp includes faster, more powerful GPU rendering capabilities, with added support for aerial perspective, displacement, subsurface scattering, matte/shadows, and more. In addition, V-Ray GPU running on NVIDIA CUDA can take full advantage of all available hardware, including CPUs and GPUs.
