View Full Version : Please help - Mental Ray rendering

07 July 2009, 05:15 PM
Hi everyone, this is my first post, and already I'm asking for help!

I don't have an extensive knowledge of lighting and rendering in Maya, more well acquainted with modeling.

I need to replicate this scene:

I have all the models, but need to create the lights, reflections - photo-realism basically - of the above render, and I honestly don't know where to start! I've been playing with Mental Ray and Global Illumination, but I haven't found any good tutorials on an indoor scene like this out there.

What do you recommend?

uh.... 3 months of learning mental ray.

2 weeks if you're insane / an insomniac.

good luck. you'll need it.
