If you're a student or educator, you can get V-Ray for a special price. The educational version of V-Ray includes an annual license and has the same features as the professional version. Plus, you get access to free technical support and exclusive V-Ray educational resources to help get you started.
Student/educator/educational institution licenses can only be used for academic purposes, and should not be used for commercial work of any kind.
Proof of status as a teacher/student/educational institution is required.
