View Full Version : Maya 7 / Mental Ray help please...

11 November 2005, 05:02 PM
Well, I bought Maya 7 a few days ago, and when I open the render settings sometimes I will be able to use mental ray, and sometimes everything even relating to Mray is gone (shaders, options,etc...:shrug: ) could somebody please help? Thanks in advance!

I can't believe the problem still exists after 7 versions.

And it's strange because not once has it happened to me, even back in Maya 4.5!

It must be hardware specific somehow, or people's prefs get messed up.

It happens to me when Maya crashes. Not often after getting the right VGA drivers fortunately...
