These days there is such a wide variety of 3D rendering software solutions available, each being unique in their own way. So when it comes to choosing a 3D rendering software to use, you need to take a range of factors into consideration to make sure you pick the best one for you.

Today, we wanted to take a closer look at V-Ray, developed by Chaos. Used daily by top design studios, architectural firms, advertising agencies, and visual effects companies around the globe, V-Ray can open up many career opportunities for the ones who master it.

And Chaos certainly cares about their youngest users. Students get access to the same industry standard, commercial-grade software at a highly discounted price. With V-Ray Education Collection, a complete toolset for mastering photorealistic rendering, fluid dynamics and more, they have the freedom and flexibility to learn anything and everything. Extra render power is also available with educational Chaos Cloud credits. And when graduation draws near, those ready to go pro get a 30% discount on their first commercial license with the newly introduced student-to-professional upgrade option from Chaos. If you’d like to see what artists like you can do with V-Ray, look no further!

We've gone ahead and collected 30 of our favourite projects from The Rookies that will inspire you to get your hands on V-Ray today and start experimenting.
