Default Paint Effects and Mental Ray

Okay, I've set up my scene much the way I want it, and I've been using Mental Ray. I want to stick with MR, because I'm using the MR sky/sun and everything's working.

Here's my problem, I can't get Paint Effects to work with it, and from looking into it, it sounds like they don't work with MR.

So I'm trying to add just a little bit of grass to the scene. I have a few brush strokes of the grass I want using Paint Effects, and then I try to convert them to polygons.

Then the whole thing crashes. Ugh.

You can convert Paint Effects to Polygons, right?

Any help?

Nevermind, I got it to work. The brush strokes were too long. Shorter brush strokes convert to polygons no sweat.
