Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Mental ray is gone [FIXED]


I am fearly new to Maya, ive used blender a bit. I installed maya a couple of weeks ago and then I registered that I had 4 alternatives in the Render meny. Maya Software, Maya Hardware, Maya vector and at last Mental Ray.

Today, i was planning to try out Mental ray for a model ive made, but then it was all gone. In the render meny i now just have, Maya Software and Hardware. Vector and Mental Ray is gone. Anyone have a clue? What has happened?

Im running Maya 8.0 on Mac OS X Tiger.

Try going to Window--Settings/Prefs---Plugin Manager--

once in the plug-in window look for the line named mayatomr and cllick the load and auto load buttons next to the mayatomr line, click refresh and you should be good to go.
