03 March 2006, 08:05 AM
Hi, decided to do the community a small favor and collect the links to francescaluces awesome mental ray shaders. I've tried to find somewhere to download the all shaders, but no luck. So here are the links.

All thanx go to Francesca and Max, wonderful work :-)

Like I said, don't thank me, thank Francesca and Max. Anyway I needed this overview myself, just decided to share it :-)

thanks for putting this list together.

here are my two cents:

Calin Panait aka yashu (http://member.php?u=87726) has most of Francesca Luce shaders up for download-

There is also a Maya Wiki ( (offered by Matt Estela ( ) with a separate Mental Ray Shader Section ( Feel free to contribute to the Wiki and to extend it.

There are so many useful shaders around that they should be listed on one place with more then the installation instructions and a 40 page cgtalk thread where a lot of very useful information get lost or are hard to find. The Wiki is a great solution to collect the available information and order them in a structured way... see it as an extensions to the Maya online Help that everyone can edit and keep up to date.

Yashu website do not post all frans shaders but it's quite handy, plus this thread gave some more links that I haven't known before like the map converter in PS

If you care to use your eyes you will find it at yashus place

Yes, but you may want to put it in your list if you want ALL Francesca´s shaders in it ;)

Gal, actually there is a thread here in CGtalk that has some shaders for Linux, one or two from francesca. Try to search for Linux mental ray or something...

EDIT: I´ve searched it. It is here:
