Chaos Group, a leading provider of state of the art rendering solutions for the media, entertainment, and design industries, has released update of V-Ray 3.3 for 3ds Max 2016, is the most complete lighting, shading and rendering toolkit on the market, making speed and simplicity accessible to all artists. The latest version delivers powerful feature set, technical advances and support for open source technologies.

What's New in this version

New Features
