Dreamscape and Mental Ray
#1
I had assumed for a long time that DS has no support for Mental Ray. But the DS Sun has MR rollouts when you go to the modify panel after making them... so I was curious if there is some MR support? I certainly haven't gotten DS to render with MR.

I have some landcape scenes that need rendered... and using MR would be a lot better than scanline because of the foilage... It would be nice to have MR support soon.

Hello,

MR rollouts for lights are automatically added by 3ds max.
For now, no plans for DS/MR shader.

I've noticed older threads suggesting that MR rendering would be incorporated in the future, at least if there seemed to be any interest... So, I just wanted to throw my vote in as a customer who would LOVE to see this plugin work with Mental Ray.

Honestly, when I bought this, I made the mistake of assuming this plugin worked with Mental Ray. Since all my scenes use mostly MR materials and all my lighting is MR, this came as quite a blow.

In the meantime, I guess I need to learn how to use After Effects and start doing some major compositing.

Hello,

Unfortunately the mental ray shader for DreamScape won't happen as it is not a trivial task.
