After 8 years on the market the revised logo of V-Ray comes just days ahead before the official release of V-Ray 2.0 itself
Sofia, December 1, 2010 - December 2010 will be a memorable period for Chaos Group and our partners as it includes a long list of special industry events, as well as the official release of the latest version of our core development V-Ray for 3ds Max. We have the pleasure to announce the upcoming official V-Ray 2.0 Release Tour 2010, which will highlight the advantages of the new version in eight countries on three continents.
V-Ray 2.0 for Autodesk 3ds Max, which is currently in Beta, blends the power of our distinguished rendering engine V-Ray with the flexibility and exceptional speed of the interactive rendering system – V-Ray RT, now running on GPUs. It is greatly improved compared to its forerunner with a long list of enhanced and new functionality, including interactive raytracing on GPUs.
After 8 successful years on the market we decided that this impressive state-of-the-art solution with remarkable functionality and intuitive interface needs also a fresh new look. The V-Ray logo evolution expresses the ambition of Chaos Group to create a streamlined and energetic symbol that expresses the dynamic product and company growth. We think this is the right time to give V-Ray a new look as the release of the second product version will be announced in just a week's time.
The worldwide tour of V-Ray 2.0 is organized together with our reseller’s network and includes visits to a number of public events with live presentations, demonstrations and trainings focusing on the latest features and additions to our product portfolio: V-Ray for 3ds Max and Maya, V-Ray RT for 3ds Max and Maya, Phoenix FD - the new simulator for fire, smoke, and haze as well as the improved sequence player and viewer Pdplayer.
