V-Ray for Revit – The Ultimate Guide and Tutorial (w/Ana)

In the world of architectural visualization, V-Ray has always set the standard for the creating the highest quality renderings around. V-Ray for Revit gives you those high quality rendering standards INSIDE of the the Revit platform.

On this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by Ana Lyubenova. Ana is the V-Ray for Revit product manager with Chaos Group. If there is ANYONE who will be able to show us the POWER of having the V-Ray rendering engine inside of Revit and answer your questions along the way, it is her.

We will be talking about what V-Ray is, what it means to be integrated with Revit, go through the workflow of using this powerful rendering engine along side your models, and talk about what new features are coming to V-Ray 5 for Revit soon!

Now sit back, relax, and let’s geek out!
