That is just the website of a specialist V-ray reseller, isn't it?

There is no official announcement on ChaosGroup Forum, you can access the latest builds by registering on the Forum and mailing the Team, and the Official VRay website is http://www.chaosgroup.com/

I'm a bit lost on this one.. they had a countdown running which ended a few days back, now it says its available but I can't seem to get much further than that. On a different note, are they releasing a v1 demo?

Its more or less the full release in the latest builds by the look of it, so do what Kel said, have a go and see if you still can get access to the nightly builds. Got it down so will give it a go soon, using a build from last week so cant imagine theres going to be that many changes.

I saw that but was confused initially since it downloads an exe file. Guess they didn't feel like making a proper installer...

i wonder if Maya 2011 will include like max the vray renderer for free.

i also wonder about the future of MR4Maya specially if Vray will have a proper integration in Maya

I wonder if that Satan icon guy is going to complain about the Darwin reference. Anyway, my renderer pop-up doth overflow. RfM, Turtle, 3Delight, VRay, Maxwell, MR - who knew being on a Mac could be so limiting

oops - spoke too soon. The Mac installer actually contains an .exe file and it's not just a zip. It also does nothing when you try and expand it in Windows. Nice one

Read the install pdf. It will give you instructions on how to use Terminal to install vray. I just did it. It's fairly simple.

ah - you're right. thanks. They really should make it a bundle or at least take .exe off the end since it's confusing.

Anyway, loads and works great. Prepasses seem to max out at around 8/16 threads though.
