View Full Version : Mental Ray fur problem

03-18-2006, 10:33 PM
Hi, I have fur set up on a character that will be rendered in Mental Ray, the fur used to work, but now it doesn't render at all, and this error // Error: (Mayatomr.Geometry) : Head_FurFeedbackShape, object is not a valid surface, ignored // comes up. Does anyone know how I can get fur to work in my scene again? Thanks in advance for your help.

I've got the solution for the problem... This error message happens only when you have a custom equalizer map mapped onto the attribute and then you Fur render settings has got default equalizer enabled. So, to resolve this we'll have to change to Custom Equalizer in the Fur render settings. Once this is enabled, the equalizer map is created in the respective directory.
