How do I render Sub Div objects using mental ray. When I try, the output is blank. Any ideas.

Thanks in advance

MR does not support subD's yet. You must convert your surfaces to nurbs or good old polygon's.

From my understanding people usually convert models to nurbs or poly's anyways. I don't know many people who keep there models as a subD surface
