Who would have thought that 3D Studio Max could give a bit more…

There are some “Production” Shaders that add more flexibility and opportunity for the Mental Ray renderer.

Have I got your attention? :)

Go to your 3dsmax\2008\mentalray\shaders_standard\include\production_mx.mi and open this file using a simple text editor.

Next go through this file and find every copy of the word “hidden” except the first in the code which is a global variable and change it to # “hidden” which will comment out and unleash the extra shaders.

Simply restart max and activate Mental Ray as your renderer and check out the many new options in the material editor :)

Your Welcome!!!!! ENJOY …....
