Lightwork Design and [0x1] Software have released Iray for 3ds Max 1.8 and Iray for Maya 2.1, the latest releases of their respective GPU rendering plugins for Autodesk software.

The updates add a new Bloom post-processing filter and improved AI denoising to Iray for 3ds Max; and UDIM support, faster animation rendering, and support for camera scale in Iray for Maya.

Both plugins are now available through Irayplugins.com, the new website operated jointly by the two firms and migenius after fully taking over development of Iray from Nvidia last year.
