With V-Ray 5 for SketchUp beta out now, we’re expanding the capabilities of rendering software — so you can do more without leaving SketchUp. Now’s your chance to download the beta; try it out and let us know what you think. 

V-Ray 5 for SketchUp Beta has been released and it promises a whole suite of new features for the end-user. Many tools have been added to speed up the artist’s workflow and improve the end result, many will be familiar to those who have experienced V-Ray 5 on other platforms like Maya or 3ds Max, but surprisingly many seem to be exclusive to the SketchUp environment. Needless to say, this Beta is incredibly exciting and Chaos Group has once again outdone themselves in making V-Ray the go-to renderer for anyone wanting an easy and top-of-the-line rendering resource.
