 "Here at Method we have been using V-Ray for Maya since the beginning of its development. It has had huge success in house for feature and commercial work large and small. Having multiple renderer support inhouse it's a head to head vs match to final only the best images."

Scott Metzger, VFX Artist at Method Studios

 "I enjoy using V-Ray in Maya, it's nice to have the option of different 3d packages, with the same great render engine. I have been using V-Ray for many years now, and V-Ray has now integrated nicely into Maya, making the lighting and rendering process very smooth, solid and thorough. I can absolutely recommend V-Ray for Maya!"
