Default Particles and Mental Ray Render

Hi I have a question, Is there any way to render the particles with Mental Ray ?? I have a scene (buildings) and I render it by mental ray. Now I added some particles (surface emiter) to simulate rain effect. But there is no any particles displayed after render in MR. Help please !!

p.s Sorry for my English

most particles can only be hardware render. You can change the shape of these particles in the particle shape attribute. There is a list of what you actually want. if it says s/w next to it than you can use software render like mental ray. all others must be rendered via hardware rendering. I hope this makes sense

If you don't know what the difference is check out Maya Help section. It goes into depth what the differences are.

If you need to stick with hardware rendered particles for the rain than you will have to composite them in another package afterwards.
