MentalImages

Awesome, Mental images have released a spec on there new metasl shading language. Its already integrated into mr 3.7 but will not be supported in maya till the 2010 version released a siggraph this year.

My hope is that we will not have to wait for the first maya service pack to roll out to be able to use it properly.

Mentalray render errors

by on May.29, 2009, under Maya, MenatalRay

I seem to answer the same few messages ever week on the autodesk forums.
So my plan for the next few weeks is to go through all my note books and try and put up answers for all the fun render errors that mentalray produces.
