VANCOUVER, Canada (SIGGRAPH), Aug 14, 2018 – Chaos Group releases the open beta for V-Ray Cloud, a push-button cloud rendering service for artists and designers running on Google Cloud Platform. V-Ray Cloud can turn a workstation into a supercomputer, unlocking the unlimited power of the cloud to help users hit deadlines and render faster than ever before. V-Ray Cloud will be free to use throughout the beta.
V-Ray Cloud removes the hardware barriers that keep most cloud rendering users at bay, simplifying the process for the everyday artist. Soon, with a click of a button, users will be able to render an entire animation in the time it takes to render a single frame, without having to track assets, juggle licenses or set up virtual machines. V-Ray Cloud will also be integrated into all V-Ray products, bringing a rapid speed boost to artists and designers in a pinch.
“V-Ray Cloud will be there whenever you need it, as a natural extension to your workflow,” said Boris Simandoff, V-Ray Cloud Director of Engineering at Chaos Group. “As needs arise, just submit a job and we’ll do the rest. It’s really simple.”
V-Ray Cloud Features:
Google Cloud Power – V-Ray Cloud is currently deployed on the Google Cloud Platform, providing a highly secure, scalable system for on-demand, high-performance rendering.
Smart Sync – Automatic scene updates for new changes, ensuring fast upload times and renders.
Smart Vault – An optimized storage system keeps assets in the cloud for use in future projects.
Remote Control – Job settings can be changed and resubmitted from any device, without opening the scene.
V-Ray Cloud is now open to all beta testers. Apply now to try free cloud rendering for a limited time.
Chaos Group will be demoing V-Ray Cloud at SIGGRAPH 2018 in the Google booth (#1423) on August 14 from 3:00PM to 6:00PM and on August 16 from 9:00AM to 12:15PM. To see a demo or schedule a meeting with Chaos Group at the show, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
