serious mental ray bug in maya 2011: ao+colorbleed stop FG bounces


#21

#22

dagon
why don’t u work with autodesk to fix there problems?
it’ will be helpful for them :slight_smile:


#23

Similar bug in 2009, having any Fluid container visible breaks FG… I wonder if they’re related?


#24

sometimes i really wonder if the MR4Maya team at autodesk really exists?
dagon plz keep us posted about the solution!


#25

i can confirm that the dll from 3ds max 2011 is working just fine, you can download the trial version and take it from there :thumbsup:


#26

Thanks matteo for the confirmation. Good found! :thumbsup: At least we got a workaround for this unacceptable bug.

cheers,
Jason H.

All the app: 3dsmax, Maya, Softimage and Mr Standalone, Share the same Dll, exactly the same!
all are identical!
Edit: If the Architecural.dll work fine in 3dsmax it should work with Maya and other, since it’s the same dll
/rachid


#28

it should, but it isnt :wink:


#29

could someone upload the max .dll provided by the trial version?


#30

Hi Dagon
if you have mr standalone, you can copy the Ray.exe from standalone to Maya bin folder, than just rename the Raye.exe to Render.exe
/Rachid


#31

Agree with that, I cannot download the whole package in this days, could someone upload just that .dll provided with Max 2011?

Thanks!

P.s : Matteo puoi fare tu l’upload di quella dll? Grazie :slight_smile:


#32

Nobody that kind :frowning:


#33

I can offer… which .dll exactly is that?

Might take a couple of hours though.


#34

I got it replaced. Up and working now… Is it ok to upload it ? I don’t want any problems with big bad guys haha :slight_smile:


#35

I’m looking for “architecture.dll” from Max 2011 mentalray folder.
I don’t think there will be any problem for you guys if you post that file here because it could be freely dowloaded from the 30days trial.

I just got no time to download the whole package just for that .dll

:slight_smile:


#36

3dsmax 2011 architectural.dll below… (delete .zip extension)


#37

Thank you all.
