If you want to switch your focus from 3ds Max to Maya without having to learn a new render engine, or re-render an old SketchUp project with the power of ray tracing, the V-Ray Education Collection has got you covered. You’ll also see how easy it is to add new levels of realism to your projects with fluid dynamics. With V-Ray Education Collection, you have access to it all.

Here’s a full list of all the Chaos Group products you get within the new V-Ray Education Collection:

  • V-Ray for 3ds Max
  • V-Ray for Maya
  • V-Ray for SketchUp
  • V-Ray for Rhino

If you don’t win a category in this year’s awards, you can get your own license for the V-Ray Education Collection so you can experiment with new software and level up your skills across multiple platforms. And it’s affordable: The collection offers an 86% saving on buying all the licenses individually. In fact, the V-Ray Education Collection only costs slightly more than a single license.
