V-Ray 1.5/2.0 for Maya End of Life Imminent
Chaos Group has been diligently working on V-Ray Next for Maya. It is currently in the third beta phase and the new release is close. Although we do not have an exact date, we do expect it very, very soon!
V-Ray Next for Maya will feature advanced GPU features and a smarter IPR. Due to the imminent release, Chaos Group will no longer support V-Ray 1.5 or 2.0 for Maya. From the Chaos Group support team, ‘Please be informed that after 7 years Chaos Group is ending support for V-Ray 1.5 and 2 for Maya on October 15, 2018. After this date, V-Ray 1.5 and 2 for Maya users will no longer have:
- on-demand download access of the V-Ray 1.5 or 2.0 for Maya builds
- upgrade options to V-Ray Next for Maya
