View Full Version : MR file node filter types

Hi there guys;

Do you know where can I find a list with the best filter types for file nodes in Mental Ray for maya?, I change the parameters but there is no difference...

I tried to search in the help but no satisfactory results found.

Thankīs in advance for your help.

i recommend just using mipmap file filers (drop the filter to at least 0.5), and use lanczos global filtering. its the only combination that will give you nice sharp textures.

Hey, thankīs for your reply.

And what if a node donīt specify with filter is using like the ramp texture?, the ramp texture has a filter parameter but it doesnīt say wich it is using...

Although Iīd like to give a try to the helliptical filter but I donīt know how to use it, Does it goes in the camera lens shaders?.

Thankīs in advance.
