Installing V-Ray

The V-Ray installer for Unreal is straightforward and easy to follow. It can be downloaded from the V-Ray | Downloads section of the Chaos Group website (please make sure you use your login credentials to ensure access to the download links). Before installing V-Ray, it is recommended to check that your computer meets the System Requirements for running Unreal with V-Ray. If you would like a step-by-step guide, please check out the Installation of V-Ray for Unreal page. To enable and set V-Ray for Distributed rendering, please check out the Set Up Distributed Rendering page.
