View Full Version : Mental Ray - render letterbox

05 May 2003, 09:41 PM
hey all,

I was do you render out letterbox format through MR?

I have my camera set up to render 70mm/ horizontal film fit but MR seems to want to override it and render out 640 480.

The image aspect from render globals overrides the aspect from the camera attribute editor - make it match in both places.

Sorry Jeremy, I'm still having trouble. I'm not sure which settings I'm to match together, the cameras "film aspect" with the "aspect ratio" under the format and resolution section for mental ray globals?

Under the software render globals, I had clicked off "ignore film gate" which allowed me to render out the image in letterbox with the black bars cropping the image. I can't find anything similar for mental rays globals.

Can you specify a little more about the settings I need to fix?

Thx a bunch for your help.
