Angry I lost my mental ray??!!

Mental Ray is no longer a choice for me in my render globals. I have no idea what I did... how do I get my mental back?

sincerly-
the confused renderer

That happens fairly frequently on both the PC and Mac platforms. I believe it may have something to do with Maya/Mental Ray crashing during a render.

For anyone who doesn't know, just go to your plugin manager ( Window/Settings&Prefs/Plugin Manager ) and check the Loaded and Auto Loade boxes beside Mayatomr.dll
