Sep 2, 2010 mental ray® software options that are included with, or available for, Autodesk® Maya® 2011 software

More : Autodesk · Software · ·

We frequently have conversations with clients explaining the differences  between the various mental ray options available for Maya 2011.  Here is a simple outline that I think will help to at lesat get the basic breakdown of the different options.  Enjoy!  If you have more uestions, just contact us here at Motion Media.

 

The following mental ray® software options are included with, or available for, Autodesk® Maya® 2011 software:

  • mental ray for Maya renderer (1 license with each Maya 2011 license)
  • mental ray Satellite for Maya (8 licenses with each Maya 2011 license)
  • mental ray Batch for Maya (5 licenses with each Maya 2011 network license)
  • mental ray Standalone for Maya (each license must be purchased separately)

mental ray for Maya renderer

The mental ray for Maya renderer license is required to use the mental ray software to render 3D scenes on the Maya 2011 host computer.  It is only licensed to run on the computer on which Maya is installed and will use all of that computer’s processors–including all multi-core processors such as those found in dual-core, dual quad-core, and quad quad-core workstations.  The mental ray for Maya renderer is one of four (4) different rendering options available with the Maya 2011 software.  The other three are the Maya native renderer, vector renderer and hardware renderer.  One (1) mental ray for Maya renderer license is provided with each Maya 2011 software license and it can only be used to render 3D scenes created in Maya. ( .ma or .mb scene files)
