Chaos Group - V-Ray 5 for Revit
Licenses are delivered digitally, usually within 1-2 business days.
V-Ray for Revit is the most versatile visualization toolset for Autodesk Revit. It can take models from real-time to photoreal rendering and meet the challenges at every stage of project development.
Now, with V-Ray Vision, users can design their BIM project with high-quality real-time visual feedback. V-Ray Vision greatly streamlines all tasks that call for speed and efficiency — whether it’s for rapid experimentation during the concept phase or when users are collaborating on the model in design development.
With the new Chaos Cosmos asset library, architects and designers can build real-life context for their model’s exterior and interior. By employing our carefully curated entourage, great-looking visualizations can be achieved effortlessly, helping users convey their ideas better while retaining accurate scale.
The signature ray-tracing engine achieves the highest level of photorealism anytime it’s needed. Users can study the model’s interaction with light in the early stages of design development and create renders to present the completed model with the highest physical accuracy. V-Ray’s new compositing capabilities polish the final renders without switching to a separate application.
V-Ray 5 for Revit handles the toughest projects and ensures that users can always leverage previous work done in Revit or other 3D applications. It is the perfect tool to handle visualization tasks from concept to completion, right inside Revit.

Customers with a V-Ray Next for Revit license are eligible to upgrade to V-Ray 5 for Revit.
Licensing and backward compatibility
Upgrading to V-Ray 5 for Revit allows customers to use either V-Ray 5 for Revit, V-Ray Next for Revit or V-Ray 3 for Revit.
Chaos Group products are licensed via an online licensing system. It used to be licensed with hardware lock (USB dongle), but that system is being phased out. Online licensing requires Internet access. Licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. For offline use, licenses may be checked out for up to 15 days at a time.
In exceptional cases, dongle licensing can still be offered. Contact us for more information.
