View Full Version : Maya hair and Mental Ray
09-19-2010, 08:14 AM
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and I have a question about Maya's hair system and mental ray working together. I'm working in maya 2010, on a character in which I am using hair made from assigning a hair system to several shaped curves. I can get the hair looking rather nice in the default maya software render but as soon as I switch on mental ray it looses a lot of the detail. I would use maya software but I find that my normal map assigned to the character works only with mental ray. Is there some way to get the same look from the hair using mental ray? If anyone has experience with these types of things, any advice would be much appreciated!
