Chapter 20. Rendering > Rendering with Mental Ray

Rendering with Mental Ray

Many of the issues discussed previously about working efficiently with the Maya standard renderer also apply to Mental Ray for Maya—or any other renderer, for that matter. However, Mental Ray for Maya is capable of some effects that Maya's renderer is not, such as Radiosity and Final Gather. Although these effects are very impressive, both can be extremely time consuming. The docs included with the install are fairly extensive but do not include tutorials. I will be keeping a list of Mental Ray for Maya links with tutorials and a list of books about Mental Ray at www.gmask.com/newriders/mr.

This section covers the basics of rendering with Mental Ray for Maya.
