V-Ray for Revit – How Does Licensing Work

Chaos V-Ray is a popular choice for Architects to render scenes that are considered better than Revit can do on its own. There is an excellent library of materials. 

Chaos V-Ray, License Model, Integrations

All Chaos V-Ray licenses include:

  • Integrations for 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, Houdini, Maya, Nuke, Revit, Rhino, SketchUp, and Unreal.
  • Chaos Cosmos (online content library).
  • (x1) Render node

You have a choice of the following:

  • Chaos V-Ray Solo – is a fixed seat license.
  • Chaos V-Ray Premium – includes Chaos Phoenix, Chaos Scans, Chaos Player, and Chaos Cloud. Premium licenses are floating licenses and is not locked to a specific machine.
  • Chaos V-Ray Enterprise – if you own 5 or more licenses, you quality for Enterprise licenses which are the same as Premium licenses but cheaper.

Render node – if you want to use additional computers to render scenes, you need to purchase an additional render node for the machine.

It is possible in a local are network to install a license server to administer all the licenses, but if only local licenses with no render nodes are used, it is simpler to install a license server on each machine on which the local license is installed on. Then one can just run the service on Windows startup.
