View Full Version : Maya caustics plugin or it's analog

09 September 2004, 06:22 PM
There is plugin to produce by software rendering caustic - maya_caustics. But at alias site it is only for maya 4. I'm interesting in it for maya 6 or it's analog for maya 6.

Mental Ray will do caustics in 6. Check ( or Maya help (f1 key) for explanations on how to use them.

The question is about maya software. Because i have shader, which can be rendered only by maya software and can not be rendered by mental ray.

Couldn't you just do a seperate pass in MR and comp them together?

I did not rendered in passes yet. But if object with this special shader can be visible in reflections, rendered by mental ray, it would be the best solution - to render in passes. But then i need to have somehow reflections of my object.
