View Full Version : Texture not showing while rendering from an ortho view

08 August 2010, 08:30 AM
Hi all,

Just wanted to share with you a strange bug I encountered (in Mental Ray for Maya 2009), and propose a solution.

While rendering in MR from the front view - a simple plane with a simple texture showed up black.

After an hour of fighting and a small nervous breakdown, the solution I found, was to change the texture projection method - from "normal", to "projection" (my UVs were fine). When I did that, the texture rendered fine.
Kinda strange, huh?

Well, I hope this info will help someone in the future.

If anybody knows the real reason for that behavior - I'd be more than happy to know...

Thanks all,
