SOFIA, BULGARIA — Chaos Group (www.chaosgroup.com), a developer of software solutions for the computer graphics industry, has acquired Baltimore, MD-based software developer and visualization firm ASGVIS, LLC.
The acquisition will consolidate V-Ray for Rhino and V-Ray for SketchUp development within the Chaos Group brand, and establishes a new Chaos Group company in the US.
The two companies first began working together in 2005 when ASGVIS adapted Chaos Group’s flagship rendering plug-in, V-Ray, to work with the modeling software applications Rhinoceros and SketchUp. In addition to developing these two products, ASGVIS resold Chaos Group’s V-Ray for Autodesk 3DS Max and V-Ray for Maya. Joining the two development teams under Chaos Group will ensure consistency among the V-Ray products.
ASGVIS will officially be renamed Chaos Group USA. Peter Mitev, CEO of the Chaos Group, will provide overall guidance for the new company. There are no planned changes to the structure or employees as of now.
