Thanks for catching that---I must have had a momentary mental infarction. V-Ray is the product of Chaos Group. The company I cited is just a distributor.
I did a bit more digging and did turn up one vendor who appears to be sellling V-Ray 1.5 for trueSpace 7.5 still. The vendor is Design3Dpro (http://design3dpro.com/ssl/product_info ... 91920c8f60" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and they are charging 200.00 EUR. The only way this would be legit (I think) would be if they are simply selling off their remaining inventory since there are no more new licenses for V-Ray or trueSpace 7.5x since the availability of trueSpace 7.6 and the cancellation of Caligari's license with the Chaos Group.
If anyone does go looking for V-Ray (and I hope someone will contact the Chaos Group and report good news) be careful to look for version 1.53. It is the latest version that was released and it fixed a number of bugs that plagued the renderer when used with trueSpace 7.6. If you're still using trueSpace 7.5x then V-Ray 1.52 or 1.51 should work fine. You can find V-Ray 1.53 on a number of torrent sites but these are all illegal and violate the Chaos Group's copyright.
Finally, one more renderer to consider is 3delight with Dribble. When you buy a $35 license for Dribble, you get one free license for 3delight. It's available from the author at CoolPowers here: http://truespace.coolpowers.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. I've never used it so I can't offer a recommendation other than to report that others have found it to work very good once they managed to get its awkward licensing scheme to work.
