Alias/Wavefront Previews mental ray for Maya Technology(August 14, 2001)
The company announced in June that it had entered into a strategic alliance with mental images, makers of the world-renowned, mental ray renderer. The two companies are working together to provide an integrated mental ray rendering option for Alias/Wavefront's award-winning 3D animation and effects software, Maya.
mental ray is a high-performance, rendering software product widely acknowledged as one of the leading photorealistic solutions in the Digital Content Creation and the CAD/CAM markets while Maya is the leading professional 3D graphics, animation and effects software. The new mental ray for Maya technology will allow access to mental ray features such as global illumination. Because the integration of the two products makes use of the existing Maya lighting, texturing and shading workflow, the learning curve for Maya users will be minimal.
Alias/Wavefront will be demonstrating its new mental ray for Maya technology at its Siggraph booth, no. 1601 South Hall. The company will also be showing Maya 4, the soon-to-ship Mac OS X version of Maya and version 1.1 of its Maya Shockwave 3D Exporter. Along with product demonstrations the company will be featuring customer presenters from such renowned production houses as Sony Pictures Imageworks, Kleiser-Walzcak, and ILM - all of whom will be speaking on their latest Maya projects.
