Having used V-Ray in production for many years, and having been involved in large Maya centric pipelines, it was great to finally put the two together. Now that V-Ray can work inside Maya in virtually the same way that it operates in 3ds Max, it allows for a more flexible pipeline that would allow for the same high quality output that you expect from V-Ray. Being centered on a solid V-Ray Standalone pipeline allows you to use V-Ray within Maya, and have your whole renderfarm operate outside of Maya. It also operates nicely within a Windows or Linux or Mac pipeline which allows for even greater flexibility regardless of the size of your project.

Working V-Ray as a fully adaptive system allows our VFX team to deal with every glossy calculation as an antialiasing issue which makes setup so much easier and render times actually faster! It's the ease of setup and simple methods to deal with common problems that are great for VFX. All of us in the industry have less and less time to work on things these days so being able to rapidly get to our vision is important. V-Ray absolutely helps in that.
