Chaos Cosmos assets are smart, which means they automatically show the right amount of detail wherever you view them. In the viewport, they’re lightweight for smooth interactivity. In V-Ray Vision, they’re more detailed and optimized for real-time. And in Chaos Vantage or when rendering with V-Ray, they show in full photoreal detail. No matter where you see Chaos Cosmos smart content, it always looks great.
Seamless across your V-Ray workflow.
Chaos Cosmos is designed to work seamlessly with V-Ray and comes as part of V-Ray 5 for 3ds Max, Maya, SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, Cinema 4D, and Chaos Vantage. Cosmos assets render consistently across V-Ray, V-Ray GPU, V-Ray Vision, and Vantage.
Chaos Cosmos is a universe of smart V-Ray content, organized into 8 categories: Furniture, Accessories, Lighting, Vegetation, Vehicles, People, Materials, and HDRI skies.
There is no need to download it from anywhere. Chaos Cosmos is a built-in library inside Chaos Vantage and the V-Ray 5 integrations. The Chaos Cosmos browser is launched from within your Chaos product (e.g., from the V-Ray toolbar). Once launched, you can browse through the various categories of 3D models to download your desired asset with many sorting options. Cosmos also has a search function where you can search on asset characteristics such as object type, space, color, publisher, etc.

What format are the Cosmos assets?
Each Chaos product imports Cosmos assets as best suits their users. In the case of 3ds Max and Maya, an imported Cosmos asset is a V-Ray Proxy object that uses native V-Ray materials.
In SketchUp and Rhino, the Cosmos asset begins as a “black box” reference that can be merged to become a V-Ray Proxy for editing. In Revit, Cosmos assets import as lightweight native Revit families and can also be used to replace other objects. In Cinema 4D, a Cosmos asset imports as an "Object" with all materials applied. To import the full geometry in the scene, the Cosmos object needs to be made "editable".
In Chaos Vantage, the Cosmos asset will be a reference that is always extracted from the local Cosmos repository.
