View Full Version : Standalone MR for Maya questions

09 September 2004, 05:26 PM
we're looking at getting some extra licenses for rendering. Now, I've heard that it can be a bitch to set up because the standalone MR for Maya (distributed from Alias) is really quirky about the shaders and stuff in the scene. Do I need to add a MR shading node for everything in the scene, or when I Export to MR, does it do everything automatically? Will I have to edit the MI files manually in order for it to render correctly in a standalone mode? I wanna know what we're getting to before we get into it, if you know what I mean.

you add just a line for every standalone you have.. it's the UNC path to the mentalray master folder. :)
