The update makes the SketchUp edition of the renderer compatible with the real-time architectural visualization tool Enscape, making it possible to render Enscape materials, models, and lights in V-Ray.
Other new features include geometry replication system Enmesh, procedural clouds in V-Ray Sky, the option to pause and resume rendering, and support for the V-Ray Distance texture and ACEScg color space.
The beta was released alongside that of V-Ray 6 for Rhino, which has similar new features.
Compatibility with Enscape reduces the need to rebuild scenes when moving between renderers
The biggest change in V-Ray 6 for SketchUp is interoperability with Enscape, the increasingly popular real-time architectural rendering software whose developer Chaos merged earlier this year.
