DAZ 3D, a leading global marketer of 3D software and 3D art content, announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement to make NVIDIA® Iray® 2015 available for free to anyone who uses DAZ Studio.

NVIDIA Iray 2015 is the world's first GPU-accelerated and physically based, photo-realistic rendering solution.
For more than 15 years, DAZ 3D has produced and offered 3D models for use by amateur and professional graphic artists worldwide. With today’s news, DAZ Studio will be the first application to make Iray 2015 available to the public. DAZ Studio users will be able to use the newest version of the advanced rendering technology that is available in premium products such as Maya and 3D Studio Max.

DAZ Studio Iradium takes that realism a step further with render results that reflect real-world surface behaviors. With Iray’s photo-realistic, GPU-accelerated performance, artists can simply click a button to get professional results even without advanced knowledge of computer graphics and lighting techniques.”
