The V-Ray render engine is an award-winning solution for CGI that was developed by Chaos Group. V-Ray is capable of advanced visual effects such as caustics and refraction, making it particularly popular with artists and designers who need to create and render complex illustrative models and make photo-realistic visualisations. Many studios across the world use V-Ray for rendering including Method Studios, Scanline VFX and Pixomondo.
