How do i get my bump maps to display properly in mental ray?
Do i have to use those funky mib_bump_basis, mib_bump_map, mib_passthrough_bump_map shaders? I couldn't get them to work.
I'm using Maya 5

All you have to do is to follow this:

And yes: That's very complicated :argh: but at least it works.
