  • not have on-demand access to V-Ray 2.0 for SketchUp builds
  • no longer have assisted technical support from Chaos Group
  • receive no software updates
  • not be eligible for upgrade to V-Ray Next for SketchUp

….so what’s Next?

Now is the perfect time to upgrade. Choose one of the options below and you’ll continue to get Chaos Group’s first-class technical and operations support, access to future updates and upgrades — and a shiny new version of V-Ray.

Switch to an Annual License

  • Cost-effectiveness and simplified scalability
  • Low initial cost, which is great for freelancers, small and medium businesses
