my strong advice for everyone, specialy not-so expirienced users, is to look, from time to time, in maya's help, answers for many questions can be found there. eg.
[from maya help, serch key-words: paint eff, mental ray]"
mental ray for Maya does not support the following Maya rendering features:

Keyframing or set driven keyframing on the RGB components of a ramp shader's colorEntryList (the list of colors that comprise the ramp shader) are unsupported.
network rendering: mr for Maya's network rendering does not correctly render scenes with contour shaders.
postprocessing eff:Paint Eff, light glow, optical eff, and 2d motion blur
Field Rendering

convert paint eff. to polygons, and everything will work just fine:thumbsup:
