Mental ray® Standalone ray-trace 3D rendering software generates imagery that ranges from stylized to photorealistic. Although mental ray rendering technology is available in Autodesk® Maya®, Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Autodesk® Softimage®, and Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software, the stand-alone version works best for higher-volume projects. With accelerated performance, improved memory handling, higher quality final gathering and texture filtering, a new physically accurate interactive rendering mode, and optimized stereoscopic rendering, mental ray® Standalone 2011 renderer represents significantly advanced 3D rendering.
An industry-standard 3D rendering software used in leading film, broadcast, digital publishing, and design visualization facilities.
Physically accurate lighting for photorealistic rendering of images.
The distributed rendering solution works independently through a command-line interface.
A robust shading language enables you to extend your 3D software?s extensive shader library to create any desired rendering effect.
mental ray Standalone 2011 is a single executable based on mental ray 3.8 and works with Maya 2011, 3ds Max 2011, Softimage 2011, and Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design 2011 software?providing extra flexibility and simplicity for studios with mixed-application pipelines
