First video released showing V-Ray Cloud
Chaos Group has published its first video of V-Ray Cloud, showing a preview of the interface and workflow inside Sketchup. Watch it on YouTube.
V-Ray Cloud is a new render service powered by Google Cloud Platform. We know so far that the service will offer several features to improve upload times, including Smart Sync that automatically resubmits only the updates you’ve made to the scene and tools that allow a user to change job settings and resubmit them without needing to open the scene.
V-Ray Cloud uses V-Ray Standalone so there are currently some limitations if you are using certain plugins or textures. For Maya, Rhino, Revit or SketchUp users this might not be such a problem as it mainly affects 3DS Max users thanks to its close integration with V-Ray. In a recent podcast Vlado mentioned that these issues are being resolved by adding a translation to V-Ray standalone equivalents for Max’s native textures, as well as conversion for popular plugins like Forest Pack Pro, Ornatrix and “most of the plugins people normally use”.
V-Ray Cloud is currently only available to select early access users, you can apply to be a part of the beta on the Chaos Group blog.
