V-Ray offers key competitive advantages, including highly optimized adaptive ray tracing, CPU and GPU rendering engines that maximize hardware as well as superior compatibility with industry-standard applications, plugins and content.
Cost-effective, flexible licensing and pricing options
- Term licenses — Term licenses minimize upfront costs and offer an easy, flexible way to expand render
nodes or workstations based on project demands. Monthly and annual options are available.
- Perpetual licenses — Perpetual floating licenses are not time-limited but require a purchase for upgrades
to future major versions.
- V-Ray collection — V-Ray Collection is the ultimate 3D rendering and simulation toolset. One license gives
artists and designers access to 15 Chaos products all with one license — and total creative freedom and
flexibility. With the V-Ray Collection, users can work freely between 3D applications, applying their own
mix of photorealistic rendering, fluid simulation and real-time scene exploration to any project.
Additional cost benefits ▪ No maintenance fees ▪ Free technical support ▪ Free service release updates that often include major new features
