Educational License Features

V-Ray 3.0 Academic for Softimage 1 year License unites the rendering workflow for VFX and animation studios.
With support for Softimage's award-winning ICE system, dynamic geometry, and V-Ray Proxy objects, V-Ray 3.0 Academic for Softimage supports the size and complexity of even the most demanding scenes.
V-Ray 3.0 Academic for Softimage's physically based toolset, including versatile shaders, lights, and cameras, makes it possible to standardize rendering workflow with the quality, speed, and stability of the V-Ray core.

Key Features of V-Ray 3.0 Academic for Softimage:

  • Render particles, strands, hair, and geometry produced by Softimage's award-winning ICE system.
  • Manage scene memory and efficiently render massive amounts of geometry with V-Ray Proxy.
  • Render dynamic geometry such as displacement, proxy objects, fur, and hair.
  • Use all geometry animation and deformations applied through animated parameters and key frames, the Animation Mixer, and ICE-based simulations.
  • Create materials based on physical properties using V-Ray's versatile shaders.
  • Use built-in Render Tree procedural shaders, computational, and logic nodes.
  • Simplify the texturing process and eliminate the need to assign UVs using Ptex.
  • Simplify the creation of complex multi-layered automotive paints using the VRayCarPaintMtl.
  • Render hair and fur with unprecedented control, quality, and speed using the VRayHairMtl.
Lights & Illumination
  • Create realistic illumination using physically-based lights, including IES lights and texture-mapped area lights.
  • Emulate real-world atmospheric lighting conditions using the V-Ray Sun and Sky system.
  • Create simple, artifact-free image-based lighting using the Dome Light.
Cameras & Optics

  • Strong render tree support - V-Ray supports dozens of the procedural shader node types for the Softimage render tree, and new ones are added on a regular basis and made available through service packs.
  • Weightmaps - apply transformations to geometry or color attributes of a scene on a per-vertex basis with full support for Softimage weightmaps.
  • V-Ray Sun and Sky - create realistic outdoor scenes with physically accurate lighting and atmosphere effects, while maintaining control over rendering times.
