OK, I have no Idea how to start learning mental ray shaders.
There is all these things like glow and lume and partivolume and stuff, but how do I use them?
Does anyone have any detailed tuts on using mental ray shaders?
I really want to lean this stuff. What does it all do?
thanks

a very good starting place is the mentalray shaders discussion in the resources forum (subforum of this forum part). Read thru it ALL...it has some incredibly useful hints, tricks ideas and explanations...a GREAT resource... Another thing you should definately check out is Jeff Pattonīs site (heīs the one that has started the Mentalray thread btw) located at http://www.jeffpatton.net/

He has loads of VERY useful smaple scenes on his site

Hope this helps,
Thorsten
