In this quick blog, we outline the new featured of V-Ray for Revit, Update 1.

New Functionality

  • View-specific settings - Render and maintain multiple views with individual lighting, mood and composition. Whether it’s a bright exterior or a nighttime interior, you can quickly switch between the two within the same project.
  • New Grass/Fur workflow - Create more realistic furry surfaces such as grass and fabrics, with the new and extended V-Ray Fur workflow.
