V-RayMax Converter PRO

168 votes

V-RayMax Converter PRO is the best tool for convert 3d scene (materials, maps, lights, cameras, proxies, modifiers, helpers, render elements, etc.) from various render engines to V-Ray and from V-Ray to Corona Render, and also for converting V-Ray and Corona materials/maps to Standard materials/maps.

V-RayMax Converter PRO converts the source materials with maximum possible preservation of the basic material properties, such as diffuse, specular, opacity, glossiness, roughness, bump, displacement, selfillumination (emission), translucency, reflection, refraction, although it is necessary to understand that certain materials may need adjustments once the conversion process is complete. Also, all the textures that are used for the above parameters were saved. As for the special procedural maps, they are converted only if there is an analogue. Otherwise, procedural maps are baked into textures or removed if the resulting materials can be used without them.

Current version: 4.0033

To V-Ray from:
  • Standard (Default Scanline)
  • Corona Render
  • FStorm Render
  • Octane Render
