NVIDIA® Iray® Server uses a common installation and license to deliver traditional offline batch rendering and interactive rendering to all NVIDIA Iray plug-in products, without the need to install any other application.

 

 

All machines running Iray Server coordinate with each other to reduce the time needed to render an image. This allows a render farm to process poster-size images in a fraction of the time of a single machine. A central management console provides flexible control over submitted jobs with the ability to adjust and rerun past jobs. Iray Server also speeds up your creative process by bridging to your Iray application and streaming back the rendered results as you manipulate your scene. Soon, even a modest laptop will be able operate Iray at the speed of your most powerful rendering rig.

IRAY SERVER FEATURES

 

Iray Rendering

Rendering
 
  • Runs on Windows or Linux, independent of submitting applications
  • Uses all supported GPUs and CPUs within the machine
  • Features sophisticated cache management that minimizes submission times
  • Same installation supports distributed rendering between machines or interactive streaming from a single Iray workstation machine

 
Iray Streaming

Streaming
 
  • Interactive streaming to host machine (with at least one NVIDIA GRID™, Quadro® or Tesla® GPU)
  • Streaming behavior that’s identical to local rendering with minimal latency
  • Incremental updates that minimize transmission for fluid editing workflows
  • Streaming quality control of H.264 video or sequential image formats for balancing quality with bandwidth

 
Iray Queuing

Queuing
 
  • Reliable distributed rendering solution for all NVIDIA Iray products and systems
  • Flexible render queue management system with user accounts
  • Super-fast job submission that quickly frees host application
  • Fastest possible Iray rendering, free of any host application overhead
  • Incremental updates for highly efficient animation rendering
  • Automatic cluster configuration between Iray Server machines
  • Ability to edit past jobs to adjust rendering options without resubmission
  • Job progress reporting and remote image result viewing

NVIDIA Iray for Maya is a plug-in for Autodesk Maya® that delivers exceptional physically based Iray rendering on an Iray workstation.

 

Scene lighting and design are extremely interactive and intuitive throughout the entire look-development process using native Maya controls. This means you can easily create or modify physically based lights and materials with material nodes integrated directly into Maya. All the materials and lights, including the NVIDIA vMaterials Library, are built with the NVIDIA Material Definition Language, so they can be shared with other MDL-compatible tools.

 

 

NVIDIA® Iray® for Cinema 4D is a plug-in for MAXON’s Cinema 4D that delivers exceptional phyically based rendering on an Iray workstation.

 

The entire look-development process becomes extremely interactive and intuitive using the novel live-rendering feature, which gives you immediate visual feedback while lighting and designing a scene. You can continue to use the physically plausible material options of the Cinema 4D material nodes and shaders, and even add your own material designs and procedural functions using NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL). The full NVIDIA vMaterials library is supported, as well as material exchange capabilities with other MDL-compatible applications.

 

 

NVIDIA® Iray® for Rhino is a plug-in rendering solution that helps designers using McNeel Rhinoceros® to quickly produce physically based, photorealistic visualizations with an Iray system.

 

Iray is integrated into Rhino, rendering directly within its viewports to give you continual, realistic feedback as you craft your model’s form, materials, and lighting. Iray’s physically based capability predicts the behavior of real-world materials and lights, giving you accurate results with minimum setup or specialized knowledge. It also supports the NVIDIA vMaterials Library—which includes hundreds of materials—as well as material exchange capabilities with other NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL)-compatible applications.
