View Full Version : I need a tut on using Mental ray Physical Sky

06 June 2007, 10:34 PM
Hey all.

I tried doing a search but couldn't find what I'm looking for.

I'm trying to create a interior scene but need to have exterior light coming through all the windows. I was reading up on this and someone was talking about using mental ray's physical Sky. I'm not familiar with this. I've just never had the need to use it. Thought I would play around with it.

Does anyone have any good links to a tutorial?

RTFM! :scream:

For a Video Tutorial, open Maya Help, under Contents:
What's New > What’s New in Maya > Rendering > (scroll down) Watch: Sun and sky shaders

Also read the section under mental ray: "mental ray for Maya architectural shaders"

Those topics are highlighted in red, you can't miss them...
