This page provides information on how V-Ray integrates into the standard Maya menus.


V-Ray provides a menu on its own in Maya's toolbar, where you can find some commonly used V-Ray components.

In addition, there are a number of items to the Maya menus, in particular the Create, Windows, Lighting/Shading, and viewport Panels menus. Here you can create V-Ray lights, geometric objects, etc.


The V-Ray plug-in needs to be activated in the plug-in manager for the options to appear.
