What is Chaos Cloud?
Chaos Cloud is an unlicensed cloud-rendering service offered directly by Chaos Group to V-Ray users via native integration in V-Ray for SketchUp, V-Ray for Rhino, V-Ray for Revit, V-Ray for Maya, V-Ray for 3ds Max, V-Ray for Cinema 4D, V-Ray for Modo, and V-Ray for Houdini. Chaos Cloud is designed with architecture and product visualization in mind. It is the optimal solution for workflows that require multiple design iterations, and it pioneers a smart-upload mechanism that breaks down the scene and fetches only elements that have been changed. Access Chaos Cloud by purchasing Cloud Credits, see table below.
Turn your computer into a supercomputer
Chaos Cloud is designed for speed. It transforms the unlimited render power of the cloud into each user’s personal supercomputer. Additional speed optimizations include a smart synchronization functionality that minimizes upload times.
Render while you work
Keep creating. Keep designing. Let V-Ray Cloud do the rendering so you can keep working. And you can render multiple jobs at the same time. Because you have got more important things to do than wait.
V-Ray Cloud automatically uploads exactly what it needs to render. And whenever your scene is updated, it only re-syncs the data that's changed – keeping your upload times to the absolute minimum.
Watch your render as it happens, from anywhere on any device. As soon as you submit a job, you can monitor the rendering from your computer, tablet or even your smartphone.
Chaos Cloud scales elastically to complete any job on time, freeing the user’s machine resources for design work. It allows users to tap into additional resources on demand, without the need to purchase fixed licenses, or set up local or virtual render machines.
V-Ray Cloud stores your projects in the cloud, including assets, so you only need to upload them once. Adjust your job settings in the V-Ray Cloud dashboard without having to resubmit your scene. No extra charges for storing projects.
Chaos Cloud vs. Render Nodes
Chaos Cloud is not a replacement but a supplement to local V-Ray Render Nodes for:
- Convenient scalability when local capacity can not complete a job in the time required
- Offloading local machine capacity for design work
- Lowering expenses for additional equipment, space, power, and maintenance
- Easy network rendering, without any IT expertise or data preparation - a solution that works for anyone

V-Ray Render Nodes
V-Ray Render Nodes speed up your V-Ray rendering workflow. Render Nodes take advantage of the combined computing power of multiple machines in a network. Continue your design work and let Render Nodes handle the rendering tasks on other machines. With support for popular render managers like Thinkbox Deadline, PipelineFX Qube and Autodesk Backburner the V-Ray Render Nodes are easily managed.
