This page provides an overview of V-Ray user interface components within Modo.
V-Ray integrates with the Modo user interface in a variety of areas. Menu options, dialog windows, and toolbars flow from familiar Modo tools to make using V-Ray a seamless experience.
Most of V-Ray's functionality is available via the Render V-Ray tab on the Layouts list.
The V-Ray menu has access to many of the settings and preferences within V-Ray. For more information, see the Menu Integration page.
V-Ray includes a toolbar that houses many quick shortcuts to some of the most commonly used V-Ray components. This toolbar is accessible in many of the default Modo layouts for quick access to V-Ray rendering actions and settings. For more information, see the V-Ray Toolbar page.
The V-Ray Toolbox is a palette that provides easy access to major V-Ray features. It can be opened from the V-Ray menu in the menu bar. For more information, see the V-Ray Toolbox page.
V-Ray Frame Buffer
V-Ray renders to a V-Ray specific frame buffer, which has some additional capabilities. All render elements can be viewed within a single window, the image is kept in full 32-bit floating point format, and simple color corrections can be performed on the image right in the frame buffer window. You can also choose the order in which the buckets are rendered, store a list of recently rendered images for comparison, and apply lens effects to the rendered image. For more information, see V-Ray Frame Buffer.
