Before installing V-Ray, it is recommended to check that your computer meets the System Requirements for running NUKE with V-Ray. If you would like a step-by-step guide, please check out the Installation page.


Licensing V-Ray

Once V-Ray is installed you will want to make sure that your V-Ray license is properly configured. The Set Up V-Ray License page includes everything you need to get V-Ray licensed and running properly.


Setting Up a Render

Setting up V-Ray as the NUKE renderer is simple. In any render setup, replace the NUKE ScanlineRender node with the VRayRenderer node, and connect it to the scene and camera.

Below is a simple setup using the VRayRenderer. The V-Ray for NUKE QuickStart Intro provides additional information for getting started, including creating a comparison scene between the NUKE Scanline renderer and V-Ray renderer.
