View Full Version : Mental Ray lens shader

10 October 2010, 12:10 PM
I am looking for a lens shader that can perform cylindrical camera projections, like with the Vray Cam, in Mental Ray in Max 2009?

Here is a good example of what I am trying to achieve

Ideally I want to be able to recreate the Cylindrical (point) and Cylindrical (Ortho) type cameras in mental ray. Does anybody know if there are any lens shaders out there that can do this and will work in max 2009?

I believe md_aperture ( can do cylindrical projections. Also, the MR Lens Library ( is good to have as well.

Well, I seems that the site has been down for some time, googeling for the Aperture shader, I did come across This (, hope this helps.
