Rendering: Maya and Mentalray
show user profile  Stianbl
Hey there,

So, the school project have started, and it's my final unit. For now I'm responsible for modeling assets for the scene (not main characters, just basic stuff), rendering and lighting of the scene.

The only problem is they are using Maya, and MentalRay. I'm only used to Max and VRay.

So, would any of you give me some good references (tutorials, information...) on light setup and rendering with maya/mr?

Thanks =)

For free?
Dont want to spend money on it if I can avoid it. I do know how VRay works pretty well, and the basic stuff should be the same. GI, and so on..

Garh, I hate it that Maya doesn't have a material editor! No way to see all the materials in the scene? Or to add a new material to all the objects containing an old material of the same type(instance)?
