Questions & Answers

[Q] Is it possible to install V-Ray as a floating license?

[A] This version of V-Ray for SketchUp allows to install the license as a floating license if you wish. This allows all computers on a network access to the license(s) on the nominated license server computer. Only the number of licenses purchased can be run on the network at the same time. If you require more workstations to have access to V-Ray concurrently, additional licenses can be purchased and added to the license server computer. Alternatively, once license can be installed per computer if you feel there is no benefit to floating the license.
