V-Ray for Revit – 360 Render


More and more clients are using the Chaos Group’s V-Ray-for Revit to create static renders. As Virtual Reality is a hot current topic, it might be worthwhile mentioning that one can also create 360 static renders in V-Ray for view using a Virtual reality headset like Vive.

V-Ray for Revit, 360 Render

Create a camera view and name it. Got to the V-Ray tab within the Revit interface. Acquire the license. Choose the VR Stereo Camera. If running a compatible Graphics Card, select to render using the GPU. Set the resolution to a custom 1536 x 1536.  Select the correct 3D view. Switch the Artificial lights on (if it is night). Check the sun setting are as required. Then render with V-Ray for Revit. Once rendered adjust the exposure and other settings to get the desired effect. Save the file out in the required format.

360 renders provide a great method for clients to interact with the proposed design. With V-Ray one can create them relatively quickly and to a good standard.
