About V-Ray Next for Maya. V-Ray Next for Maya the first sneak out shortly before the release of its sister product, V-Ray Next for 3ds Max.
Most of the new features in the update were previously rolled out in the 3ds Max edition, including the new ‘scene intelligence’ tools like automatic exposure and white balance and the new V-Ray GPU architecture.
Other features previously debuted in the 3ds Max edition include a new physically based hair shader and the integration of Nvidia’s AI-based OptiX render denoising technology.
However, there are also features unique to Maya, notably VRayToonMtl, a new toon shader with advanced options like anisotropy and glossy Fresnel effects.
The update also introduces a new IPR architecture for faster feedback on complex scenes and support for animation Playblasts. The IPR now supports viewport denoising and texture isolation for shader debugging.
In addition, V-Ray Next for Maya incorporates a few GPU rendering features not yet supported in the 3ds Max edition, like bucket rendering – "coming in [future] dot releases" for Max, according to Chaos Group.
As well as the features listed above, the update adds a new metalness parameter to the standard V-Ray Material to support PBR workflows; support for layered Alembic files; and a new layered texture.
