Vray Tutorial – Vray Embree Helper

Quick Video about the Vray Embree Plugin. This is the first in (what I hope to becomes) a regular series of Tips & Tricks videos focused on Vray.

I’ve recently come across the Vray Embree Helper object; a plugin that is currently separate from the standard Vray installation. The VrayEmbree plugin allows for render speedups between 20-30+ % when rendering with Vray on an intel processor.

This quick video gives an overview of the plugin with a render comparison and covers the installation and how to use the vrayembree helper in your 3ds max scene.
