View Full Version : problems with mental ray

05 May 2009, 07:48 PM
Hi...I'm having problems with maya (of course or I wouldn't post a question) the problem is I don't have the mental ray plug-in in my plug-in manager, thus I cannot create mental ray nodes...I have tried tossing my preferences and still not there...also in my render layers menu there are only 3 boxes instead of 5 (maybe this has to do with the maya plug-in thing)...the thing I"m tring to accomplish right now is an ambient occlusion pass and of course I need mental ray to do so...I'm also running windows vista (lame) and I wonder if that might have something to do with the problem, or maybe not and I've got a wacked out version of maya 2009...anyways, if anyone can give me a solution that would be outstanding...thanks
