The Animation section in V-Ray's Render Settings is where you apply motion blur and control the frame range for animated scenes. This section becomes available when you set up an animation using Rhino's Animation Tools.




UI Path: ||V-Ray Asset Editor|| > Render Settings > Animation rollout




Time Segment – Select which parts of the animation to render as individual frames.

Entire Animation – Renders the entire animation as individual frames.
Frame Range – Allows selection of only certain frames to be rendered.

Start – Specifies the starting frame.

End – Specifies the ending frame.

Get Animation Range – Set the frame range to match the current animation length. Frames per second are set to 30.

Motion Blur – Enables motion blur.




  • The Use Camera Path setting of the Irradiance Map and Light Cache GI engines can be enabled in order to calculate the GI samples for the entire camera path of the animation instead of just the current view.
  • When using the Rhino Animation tools, V-Ray requires the specified Viewport to match the current active viewport in order to record the full frame sequence.
  • The V-Ray recording process of an animation is shown in the Rhino progress bar, located at the bottom right corner of Rhino's UI.
  • Note that the first animation frame is always indexed starting from 0 and not 1.
