V-Ray 3.0 Licensing & Pricing Policy

To provide optimum security, reliability, and portability Chaos Group requires a hardware key to license its software. This hardware security key safely protects the V-Ray License from computer malfunctions, routine hardware maintenance, and equipment changes; and it provides users the ability to use V-Ray on multiple machines.

It is important to note that the hardware key is not a node-locked device. The V-Ray License Server is a floating license system, allowing multiple users to check out a license up to the maximum concurrent number of licenses available.

The official suggested end user price of a single new V-Ray 3.0 Workstation for Softimage is 750 EUR/ 1040 USD/ 650 GBP.
