Rendered with mental ray

While we’ve been busy, a few good shots have come out using mental ray, including the Mirror Man from Snow White and the Huntsmen.

Take a look at some of the great artist work in these spots:

  1. Thanks!

    Do you know if this works were using mental ray standalone or mental ray for Maya?

    I’ve so the impression mental ray for Maya is more and more unusable because of the lack of maya2mr (motion blur that doesn’t work on undeformed objects for example).

    • We use both at The Mill, but the farm is Standalone.

      I’m curious, what do you mean about motion blur for undeformed objects? The first selection for mental ray motion blur is “no deformation” or motion blur based on transform nodes. This is used most often and works fine. Do you have a specific example?
