Hi Carsten,

can't you render it with Maya's own render or is it because other stuff requires Mental Ray?

otherwise I don't know if you have read this tip from MJ... -->

Mental Ray for Maya is still in it's early stages. Hopefully will see something implamented for the next release after Maya 5. They have added alot in Maya 5.

Bad news Fur is not supported in Maya 5's MR. Compositing is your best bet.
