VRscans Material Library and Scanning Service

Annual License $420
Imagine rendering truly realistic materials – without creating a single texture map or touching a single setting.  Using a patented material scanning system and rendering plugin, VRscans introduces a new level of accuracy for visualizing real-world materials in computer graphics.

The new 3D material scanning service can capture a material’s complete appearance. It creates an exact digital match to the physical material sample. The scanned material is saved in a proprietary .vrscan format and it’s ready to render in V-Ray with the new VRscans plugin. The best part is there is no guesswork for the user. There are no settings to adjust. And the match is one to one.

The VRscans plugin is a workstation (1 GUI + 1 Render Node) license that allows a user to load and render scanned materials. Licenses are available as monthly or annual rentals. (This includes access to our ever-growing library of physically scanned materials such as leather, fabrics, wood, etc.)

Incredible imagery straight from Rhino

There are loads of new features into V-Ray for Rhino — including support for VRscans. With VRscans support, you can use our library of over 650 lifelike materials to add new levels of photorealism to your SketchUp projects.

With VRscans, you don’t have to create your own materials. We take a physical material sample, scan it, and then return it to you along with a .vrscan file. Import the file with the VRscans plugin, apply it, and you’re done. VRscan materials are an exact digital replica of a physical material, so there’s no guesswork, and the results are reliable.

The best materials to scan are fabrics, leather, plastics, metal, wood, and stone. Glass, skin, and very glossy materials are not recommended. Every material you send us is analyzed and evaluated for scanning.
