View Full Version : Where did my mental ray go?

05 May 2003, 10:34 PM
I have had Maya 5 installed on my new computer since last week. After installing 4.5 on the computer too, Mental Ray (among others) have vanished from the render globals options. All i have avalable now is maya soft and hardware. I can say for certain if the instilation of 4.5 made this go away, but I can't think of anything else I did different. I've tryed trashing prefs too--nothing seems to work.

Anyone have any idea what is going on?

P.S. Im on a mac

you don't have it in maya 4.5 or maya 5.0?

I'm not sure how mental ray is handled in maya 5.0, but is the plugin loaded? window/settings and preferences/plugin manager

mayatomr had to be loaded

It wasn't showing up in 5 (after instal of 4.5) I checked the plugin manager too, nothing showed up there. I went ahead and did a reinstall and everthings good now! (thank god)

thats for the advice though.
