Mentalray + Layered Shaders +GI


I am having really big troubles with Mentalray GI + Layered shaders, apparently they defenitely ignore photons when rendering,so all objects which have layered shaders are not affected by GI ,Final gather works ok,though...

My question is for anyone who has find a nice solution to this ,using MR shaders,or other workarounds for not having to use Layered shaders.

I think this is a real shame ,hope alias sortes in next update

You could use the standard mr mix8 shader or better francescaluce's mix8layer, cause this has much more features than that standard mess.
