hi . i am just downloaded the "prism_photon 1.0.0" shader and i had some troubles in setup it at the last part .........


Maya Installation:

Copy prism_photon.mi to the /Mayax.x/mentalray/include directory.

Copy prism_photon.dll to the /Mayax.x/mentalray/lib directory.


Add to your maya.rayrc file the lines

link "{MAYABASE}/lib/prism_photon.{DSO}"

mi "{MAYABASE}/include/prism_photon.mi"

after similar declarations.

The shader will show up in the mental ray Photonic Materials tab.


so if anyone know where exactly to write this 2 lines

link "{MAYABASE}/lib/prism_photon.{DSO}"

mi "{MAYABASE}/include/prism_photon.mi"


in maya.rayrc file


thanks

if I remember correctly, just place them underneath the existing link and mi entries in that file. I haven't touched the maya.rayrc for a couple versions at least.

Same. Far as I know, Maya picks up new nodes automatically.

yeah but back in like maybe 8.5 or so we had to add them. I know it's been a while. I didn't bother asking which version of Maya he's running :)
