mental ray

mental ray version 3.3 is a completely separate rendering package written by mental images (www.mentalimages.com) (Figure 20.36). This is industrial-grade software that has been used in movies like The Matrix Reloaded, Star Wars: Episode II—Attack of the Clones, and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. In February 2003, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognized mental images for technical achievement.

Figure 20.36. mental ray's quality can be seen in this illustration, or in the stillLifeMR.jpg file on the DVD. Note the light spilling out under the crystal ball.
