is it possible to layer couple mentalRay shaders ( miaX) one on top of another?? standard layer shader don't work with mentalRay shaders.. i tried to use mib_mix_collors.. and did not find a way there neither :S

does mix20Layer work with mrayShaders and does it work in 64bit version of maya 2009.. i used it earlyer but i think i had problems with 64bit version... i think i didnt make it work on 64bit maya...

is there any way to make layer shader without using some custom shaders or plugins ??????
i just need to put 2-3 MIA shaders one on top of another and make some transparency with alpha maps to reveal those materials that are below....

i found solution in some other post ( thanx to nfrancisj (http://forums.cgsociety.org/member.php?u=376451) ) for layering dielectirc shader with some other using surface shader and inputing mix shader in "out collor" of surface shader... but problem is that i need mia X shader because of its bump and normal bump... but mia X shader cant be plugged that way in out collor of surface shader...
is there any other solution?

I'm pretty sure you have to plug the mia material X differently into the surface shader. I think its "result" from mia to the color of the surface shader.

let me know what you think of the vids... I'm trying to setup a site with a collection of vids based on some of the answers here. Is the rapidshare thing working for people? should I put up quicktimes/avi/flash..? anyone know of good compressions?

i had some time just to take a look over a video but i didn't had time to try it so far but i'm sure it will work!
i was thinking in first place that there is some more simple solution for this problem but i'm happy to have this one so far!

just want to thank you again for all effort you made to help me and im sure this video will help to many others too!
rapidshare works fine for me and quality of video and sound are pretty good so i don't think you should change something with that.

thanx again and i hope that i could help you with something in future!

i have solution.. i used mix20Layer but it's old and dont work with mray shaders well... than i found new version from same guy called JS_Multilayers and works just fine!
it's free and you can dnload it from Jan Sandstrom's web site.. also you can find many other really cool plagins and shaders/utils

i used maya 2009... and worked really fine..
but really don't see a reason for using maya 2010 if you don't use those "new" features like export to toxic and other like matchmover...

so i sugest you to use 2009 instead...

cheers
