Hello and welcome to the Iray for Maya forum.

This forum is the central point by which we communicate to the Iray for Maya plugin community. We look forward to all your posts including your tips, insights, issues, ideas, opinions, examples, and requests for assistance. We hope to collaborate with you and build a community of professionals on all things Iray.

This forum takes over from that previously hosted by NVIDIA. All postings on that forum were transferred here as a read-only archive: Iray Plugins Archive. The transfer took place on 20th November 2017, so postings there between that date and now are have not been copied over.
For more information see this NVIDIA announcement.
