V-Ray today is one of highest
quality render tools available for production. It is widely used by
professional CG artists and visualizations firms worldwide. Its proven,
beautiful and super realistic image quality, at unsurpassed render speed,
attracts many users from all areas. V-RAYforC4D is the
Cinema4D native incarnation of this great engine.
It enables you to use V-Ray directly within Cinema4D
using the typical C4D like workflow. V-Ray is the de-facto standard in
architecture & design visualization, car rendering, TV commercials, and many
more areas, like in recent Hollywood Movies like 3D Blockbuster AVATAR.
Its good, its fast, its stable!
V-RayforC4D is a professional rendering solution for Cinema4D
users, looking to get the most realistic and fastest production images (still
and motion) possible when working with this specific modelling tool.
V-RaYforC4D is an industry standard and it is used by many big
studios all over the world. It integrates seamlessly with C4D and it offers a
very short learning curve making it also one of the most accessible rendering
tools on the market.
Fast: V-RayforC4D results
being one of the fastest render engines for Cinema4D on the market. Its short
learning curves allows designers to master it in matters of days.

V-RAYforC4D 3.4 is released
Vienna, Austria – Nov 30, 2016 – Today, LAUBlab releases V-RAYforC4D 3.4, a powerful rendering system optimized for large productions and photo-realistic design projects.
V-RAYforC4D 3.4 is seamlessly integrated and optimized for both CPUs and GPUs, using whatever an artist picks to deliver high-quality imagery and animation quickly, even when working with complex 3D scenes.
V-RAYforC4D 3.4 operates under the same 3.4 core technology that has made V-Ray an industry-standard in visual effects, broadcast and architectural design projects for nearly 20 years. With a vaste lighting, shading, and rendering toolkit at their disposal, artists and designers have full control over the entire creative process, from real-time look development to the final frame.
"V-RAYforC4D 3.4 was a super update. From all the new features (a lot), to the super high speed calculation…and…almost no need anymore interface knowledge expertise.
Since that change, all my workflow and performance change for a higher level…. it made my life easier ;)"
- Nuno Silva nu.ma - Portugal
“ If there is anything that I can point at first glance in my experience with the
V-RAYforC4D community is that it must be the most helpful 3D one out there.
To be able to have the latest V-Ray with its really in-depth core integration inside of Cinema 4D enables our studio to seamlessly integrate it in our everyday work. We can dive deeper and really fine tune every aspect of the image or we can as easily just let it decide what’s best for the scene and have stunning imagery in both scenarios.
V-Ray’s astonishing speed and deep integration end up making it feel more as a native part of C4D than a third-party software.”
- Yunal Zobu MOSConsult – Bulgaria
"MOT Studios – a CG Design company, has been using VRAY4C4D for the last 7 years. It has become an integral part of our design office , one with which we cannot operate without. It has given us the edge in CG design especially in our architectural field.
Over the 7 years the program has also evolved and become more fine-tuned and an excellent tool in the design arena.
I would highly recommend VRAY4C4D to all C4D users"
- Mouton Burger - CEO Mot Studios

can welcome you on board soon.
System & license Requirements
Supported OS: Microsoft® Windows Vista 7, Windows 8 & 10, all 64bit or Mac OSX 10.9.5 and Newer
We support MAXON Cinema4d R16.050, R17.055 and R 18.029 or newer, on OSX and Windows. All bundles are supported (Prime, Bodypaint, Broadcast, Visualization and Studio Bundle versions)
The V-RAYforC4D key or serial is based on the MAXON Cinema 4D serial number. It uses the serial starting with a “1”. It also supports MAXON license server use, (also in that case it uses the serial starting with “1”, that is assigned by the license server to each seat). The number of DR nodes are handled by the V-RAYforC4D key/serial. default are 5 free included. Extra DR node bundles (5, 10, 15) can be purchased from resellers. For Teamrender or C4d cmdline UNLIMITED number of render nodes are included FREE.(no extra licenses needed for that).
V-Ray is not node locked, you can freely move your license. Only needed is that the Cinema4d version you run V-Ray with, uses the same Maxon C4D serial you have bought V-Ray for.
