V-Ray offers its users a set of features that you should expect from a quality renderer. With its fast fully multithreaded raytracing engine it takes the advantage of all the CPUs supported by your system throughout its pipeline - preparation and rendering. Capable of making accurate reflections and refractions clean or glossy and blurred, it helps achieve astonishing realism in the computer-generated realm. Simulation of focusing (Depth-of-Field) helps in simulating real-life cameras. Different methods of illumination simulation, caustics calculations help with per-object based property adjustments help artists achieve great rendering performance for fine art photorealistic images. Adaptive antialiasing based on color difference as well as G-Buffer channels is one of its advanced features. It includes sophisticated multipass methods as well as simple approaches.

With its fast performance V-Ray unveils a whole new world of possibilities to artists. Speed is what has always been a problem for most raytracers. Some have poor optimizations, while others don't utilize all of the system's processors properly. That is why Chaos Group has worked hard on the optimization routines in their product bringing you one of the fastest renderers in the industry.
Very few can offer network distributed rendering. V-Ray does. It gives incredible power to studios with many computer boxes, to use all the CPU power connected to the network for rendering within a single frame. No limitations on the size or type of your computer, as long as 3ds Max can run on them. Various license bundles are offered for various number of render servers.
