      Customer Reviews

      Based on 1 review
      Great quality and efficient and professional rendering

      I mostly use V-Ray next for architecture rendering. Results are excellent even when I don't have much time for a professional finish. After the initial learning curve ( there are many resources on the web, by the way) I find myself in complete control of the tool. The quality of my work is better than expected.
