We’ve had a quick play around with it, and it looks like there is plenty to try out, including features that were previously only available in V-Ray for 3ds Max – like the V-Ray RT CPU and GPU rendering. You can check out the many new improvements and updates here.
If you want be one of the first to try out V-Ray 2.0 for Maya, then get involved in their beta program. It’s open to all users who already own a license of V-Ray 1.5 for Maya or those that pre-order V-Ray 2.0 for Maya. Anyone who pre-orders the new release will get the beta version now and the full licence when it’s released in a month’s time. If you place your order by the 20th of April you can get a discounted price of £770 before it goes up to the normal price of £840.
We’re keen to see what you think of the new version, so let us know.
