One of the new features of MRAY 3.5 ar CCMeshes.
Is it possible to use them in Maya 8?

sorry for bumping this.. I just think I've read somewhere this is possible (albait not straight forward).. Now I can't find anything anymore.

Actually, the unfortunate thing is this. If it was working, there'd probably be people talking about it. cc meshes may be usable in Mental Ray 3.5, but there doesn't seem to be any support for it from Maya at the moment. It's a mental ray new feature, not a maya new feature.

That being said, I don't even know if it's working on the mental ray side of things. So yea, tough luck.

The apparent lack of support for the cc meshes (in case there is and I'm totally wrong about this) isn't the only thing that is missing. There are also the new final gather modes that were said to be available, but ended up being unavailable.

Thanks for the answer Lamster.

Maybe somebody will come up with a trick someday. I mean, the final gather modes seem to be accesible with a trick. Why not ccmeshes.
We can only hope... or wait for maya 9, booh
