Overview 


Submitting render jobs to V-Ray Cloud can be done easily and directly from V-Ray for Rhino's interface. This page walks you through the steps of doing so.

V-Ray Cloud requires the installation of the V-Ray Cloud Client application. For more information, please visit the Installation of V-Ray Cloud Client page.

If you add a new version of a job you have already submitted, its upload will be much quicker than the initial upload. V-Ray Cloud compares every new job to the existing ones, and if there is a match the client app will upload only the changes. This is useful when you make a new iteration of an existing scene and is why it's recommended to keep your jobs in V-Ray Cloud while you are still working on them.


Submitting Render Jobs


V-Ray for Rhino provides in-built integration with V-Ray Cloud, allowing you to submit render jobs to the cloud directly from Rhino, using the dedicated Render in V-Ray Cloud button. The button is located on the V-Ray Asset Editor.

 

 

Clicking on the Render in V-Ray Cloud button will send over your currently opened scene to V-Ray Cloud for analysis.

Once the scene is successfully analyzed, you have to finalize some of the settings of the render job before it starts rendering in V-Ray Cloud.

 

 

The output image types you will be able to download by rendering in V-Ray Cloud are JPG and the file type you have specified in your scene’s settings. These settings are customized in the 3D application you use for designing your scene. If you don’t specify anything in the 3D application, V-Ray Cloud will generate an EXR image besides the JPG.

When ready, click the Submit button. If you are presented with the following message, then your render job has been submitted successfully and it will start rendering shortly on our cloud.

 

 

Clicking on View Job will redirect you to the Projects tab of V-Ray Cloud where you can monitor the status of your render jobs, download them, organize them in projects, resubmit, or delete them. For more detailed information on these topics please proceed to the Managing render jobs in V-Ray Cloud page.

 

If there are free resources in the cloud, V-Ray Cloud will start rendering your job immediately. If there are no free resources, your job will join a queue and will start rendering automatically when resources become available.

Alternatively, render jobs can also be submitted through the Standalone V-Ray Cloud application and any command-line interface. For more information please visit the Submitting render jobs to V-Ray Cloud page.
