Older Versions of V-Ray
With the release of version 3, Chaos Group no longer support V-Ray 1.49 for SketchUp and there is no upgrade path from 1.49 to any other version.
With V-Ray 3, there are various license changes. Unlike v2, there are no longer 10 additional render nodes included for distributing render load; with upgrades, this has been reduced to 1. If you used more render nodes with v2, please review the options for upgrading. The cost of extra nodes is much lower when upgrading.
Please note: Electronic licenses are currently not available for upgrades.
