View Full Version : Mental Ray Gone

11 November 2005, 12:26 AM
Accck, I have Maya 6 Unlimited and just last night I was rendering some pictures with mental ray. I turned on the computer today and now mental ray, and all of the shaders out of the shader library are gone. I uninstalled the shaders and reinstalled them, and now mental ray is completely gone. What do I do?

Here is a picture of the render globals for me.
No Mental Ray (

is there perhaps any way of reinstalling mental ray itself?

a) Ride a bike up to the top of a mountain. Reflect back on all your sins and hope for Mental Ray to return when you're worthy.

b) (my personal choice) Go to:

Window > Settings/Preferences > Plugin Manager

And load the Mayatomr.mll plugin.
