I can't get Mental Ray to render anything
I've just installed Maya 6.5 complete. I wanted to have a quick play around with MR to check that everything was ok, but apparantly it's not.
If I try to render even the most basic of scenes, like three stacked cubes for example, in draft quiality mode, no shadows, no textures, nothing... The render View just sits there frozen. The only way out is the End the task and relaunch Maya.
Rendering with Maya software works as expected, for both new scenes and anything I created at Uni, but no MR.
Can anyone think why this might be the case?
I did accidently (long story) install the MR satellite on the host computer, but running the installer a second time seemed to uninstall it, since it's nowhere to be found on that computer anymore. I haven't installed MR satellite on any other computers yet, I'm just trying to do an MR render on the main computer. I hope the initial mistak eisn't what's causing the problem.
Any help you can possibly give would be great...
