I running some simple test renders. Maya software render will render out a plane with a bump map, no problem. But when i switch the render over to mental ray it doesn't produce a bump effect. I thought all maya nodes worked in mental ray. Do i need to recontruct my shader network with Mental ray nodes?

Post edit, i ran some simpler tests, i guess mental ray just didn't like my shader network...it still renders out bump maps....

in your old scene, does enabling the "Export with SG" option on your root node's shading group have any effect?

if your going to use mental ray as your primary renderer it's ideal to start using all MR shaders.
