Mental Ray resources
show user profile  Mack_Blariah
I've used Mental Ray a fair bit over the years but never had need to get seriously in-depth with it. Now that I'm taking some time to do so I'm finding that there's a lot of information but it's all dispersed among millions of blogs and tutorial sites.

Is there a good book or site that explains things a bit more than just "This is what the spinner does?"

And yes, I know Mental Ray is quickly moving into "deprecated" territory but I can't afford VRay or anything else right now otherwise I'd just move to that.

"This is what the spinner does?" - If that's what you are looking for then check the manual.
