You should not be looking for MR Shaders under Bake Sets.

MR Shaders are >

Click with RMB on Create Mat panel in Hypershade


choose Create Render Node

(you should see these shaders in Create menu in Hypershade

I thought that im supposed to have a mental Ray shaders tab?

Also under render node there is still not a mental ray tab..

Just materials |Textures | Lights | Utilities

Thanks for the reply

mental ray is loaded ? - the script editor and the output window should contain some information regarding mental ray after starting maya - what does the script editor/output window say?

ok...not good....upon checking Mental Ray has vanished..

Its not there...

THere is no message saying that its loaded..its just gone..

Its not in -Render Using or render globals..

I have deleted the line in the environment file saved it and also deleted the system variable but that still hasnt got it back..

ANy ideas would b great..
