Mental Ray


Recommended Posts

I am new to Mental Ray (Max 6) and have been desperately trying to find some basic tutorials to get started, does anyone have a link? Or, does anyone have a suggestion on settings/lighting for a basic exterior scene (at least to start with)? I am not sure if it is best to use a directional light, sun light, skylight? And should the materials all be Mental Ray (even though they can be standard max materials)?

Thanks for any answers and help...

there are some very good threads here at cgarchitect about mental ray (even if they are not tutorials strickly speaking i'm pretty sure you'll find them more than useful). i'd suggest you to do a search using "mental ray" as key words.

here is another good link you might want to check (cg talk this time, long long thread):




hope it helps
