Super taf! ;)

Chaos Group has revealed V-Ray Next for Modo, which comes with the features from the 3DS Max and Maya versions like the adaptive dome light, new physical hair material, improvements to the standard shader, and more.
ADAPTIVE DOME LIGHT. Better image-based lighting using V-Ray Scene Intelligence without the need to add Portal lights for interior scenes
NEW MATERIALS. “Render realistic-looking hair with the Physical Hair Material. Plus, the standard V-Ray Material adds new Metalness reflection controls to support PBR shader workflows.”
2X FASTER GPU RENDERING. Fast new GPU rendering architecture is said to support more high-end production features.
BETTER DENOISING. “V-Ray delivers instant feedback in the viewport IPR with less noise, so you get cleaner images while you design. And you can denoise individual render elements for added control in compositing.|
NEW EFFECTS. “Glare and bloom lens effects have been fully redesigned to be faster and more accurate, the Rolling Shutter can emulate the warped motion blur effects common in digital video and cell phone cameras, and the Toon Shader now includes more options for line control.”

Dirt & Scratches Pack by Emil Skriver is a set of high-quality 4K 16-bit textures. In 3D software, the textures are very powerful when used as material masks or as gloss, normal/bump or metallic variation. In that way, the textures will add definition to your materials that react in a realistic way.
