Yay, and a renered shot. LOL I just learned how to render in mental ray. Well I didnt actually learn alot, but just enough to make my rotor look realistic. Ok I know yall are sick of the rotors lol but im happy OK NO MORE ROTORS AFTER THIS unless its with other crap on cars.

Looks good but the rotor looks like plastic when it should be metal?



Maybe use a dgs material instead.

the you have to enable the mental ray menu.

Do a search on google on how to activate mental ray meterials.

I cant remember how to do it off the top of my head.
