Hi i'm doing a final year project on making a menu system in maya to make it easier for people to use Mental Ray. I was thinking of combining all the elements from the Render Settings and Light Attributes and putting them all under one menu with extra attributes like a light list so u can select each one or all at once and apply GI settings and a library of objects to be used in Final Gather to emit light. Also i was thinking of having automated settings based on a persons computer spec. I was just wondering what people thought about the idea and any things i should try to add to it. I'd appreciate any feedback.
