Hi guys, which one is the best VRAY or MENTAL RAY??? Based on the fact that in mental ray, many materials are ready while in VRAY, one have to adjust here and there to get the right finish, SO which one has the best output result?

Many thanks

this might help...

this has been discussed lots.

Mental ray ships with max, you pay for vray.

however the popuar option seems to be vray.

There are however some very good renderers out there, finalrender, fryrender, brazil etc

"Mentalray is more powerfull with an appropriate pipeline"

As someone who has used mentalray with an appropriate pipeline, I would debate this assertion.

Povray is cheating. Do it pixel by pixel, like a real man.

Westcoast I just saw your reply.

I think I missed it because it was surrounded by these awesome renders.

and i would support his debate.

vray, currently; is making a mockery of the rendering system world. litterally destroying everything out there on just about every level.
