    Yes, unfortunately due to Chaos Group implied territory restrictions we can only ship to US and European addresses. Sorry.

    If it's not already in your account now, I would expect it tomorrow. I know I was shown a copy of the email that will go out tomorrow letting everyone know 2.0 is ready for download. I know I have access to 2.0 in my account now, but they may have just been testing the system before the system wide launch.

    Sounds good! Thanks for the heads up!

    If we want to buy an extra dongle for 2.0 what is the best way to go about doing that? We bought two copies of 2.0 and one copy of PDPlayer, however we only got one dongle (yes the instructions did say that only one dongle would be shipped).
    Thanks,

    Wow, that's a trip. After trying to reply to your email this morning it bounced as the email you provided does not exist, nor does the domain. I did a bit of detective work and found two others for you and literally pressed send as you submitted this post. Can you email me at shop@cgarchitect.com with the email address you are currently using and I'll send you the info.

    Hello Everyone.

    For the last few years I have been learning 3D with my brother and have started producing images. He is now moving away and and is obviously taking his Vray dongle with him.

    In the UK, Vray 2.0 seems to be the only product available and is being sold at around 820 per license. I cannot nearly afford this (and obviously cannot produce CGIs to pay for it). I have looked into buying another copy of Vray 1.5 but found that is is impossible.

    Why do software companies not allow you to buy older versions such as 1.5 at a cheaper rate!? This makes sense for skilled individuals who wish to make a dent in the market. As it stands, pricing seems to favour big studios with big bucks but I suppose that's the game!

    If anybody has any information on resellers that deal with old versions of Vray, please let me know as I'll snap it up. Otherwise, a brief explanation of why older versions are unavailable would suffice.

    Many thanks.

    Hi Peter,

    No reseller can sell 1.5 on its own as it's available to all existing customers as part of a purchase of V-Ray 2.0. In fact when you purchase the V-Ray 2.0 upgrade the license dongle allows you to run either 1.5 or 2.0 (just not concurrently). The only way to get 1.5 is to purchase the latest version of V-Ray. If you find anyone willing to sell only 1.5, I would not buy it as it will almost certainly be an illegal copy that Chaos Group will not support.
