May 16-17, 2018 | Sofia, Bulgaria


Chaos Group’s first ever V-Ray Academy is set to take place May 16 – 17, 2018 — and you’re invited!

We’re looking for V-Ray fans, educators and tutors who want to boost their V-Ray skills and help us spread V-Ray knowledge around the world.

We’ll give you all the equipment (and food!) you need for the two-day course, and one of Chaos Group’s expert 3D artists will be on hand to answer your questions. The academy will be held at Chaos Group's headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria, allowing you a sneak peek behind the scenes of V-Ray’s development.

Complete the program successfully and you’ll become an official V-Ray Mentor, so you can organize V-Ray courses and accredit V-Ray Certified Professionals. And, if you stick around for a couple of days you’ll be able to check out our brand new Total Chaos conference too!




The V-Ray Academy will teach you everything you need to know about V-Ray. We’ll show you best practices, and help resolve any issues you have with the software on a one-to-one basis.

What you'll get out of the V-Ray Academy experience:

  • The chance to be one of the very first V-Ray Mentors!
  • A free, two-year education license of V-Ray for 3ds Max including full support and regular software updates
  • Promotion of your contact information and the courses you offer in a dedicated section of the V-Ray Academy webpage
  • The opportunity to organize V-Ray Certified Professional sessions and exams. We’ll provide the exam content via a dedicated certification platform, and successful candidates will be listed on our official VCP webpage.

At the end of your V-Ray Academy training, you will be able to recreate the scenes in the video below.


The course is designed for people with a solid working knowledge of 3ds Max and V-Ray for 3ds Max.

Fluency in English is required.

Certification as a V-Ray Мentor is valid for two years. To ensure you’re up to date with the latest V-Ray features, you’ll need to renew your certificate at the end of this period.



We have three V-Ray Academy sessions coming up in 2018.

V-Ray Academy 1:  16 – 17 May 2018, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
