Free update for registered users adds several new features and improvements.

Highlights include:

  • V-Ray RT GPU now supports hair and fur, subsurface scattering and light cache
  • New Microfacet GTR / GGX BRDF, perfect for hard surfaces like metal
  •  New VRayInstancer geometric plugin for instancing objects using ParticleFlow systems
  • Added support for OpenSubdiv objects in Alembic files
  • A number of V-Ray Frame Buffer improvements
  • Updated to Embree 2.3; Embree can now accelerate V-Ray Proxy objects, instances and Hair Farm / Ornatrix hair and fur
