mental ray for Maya is an optional, fully integrated plug-in renderer for Maya that offers all the features and tools of mental image's renowned mental ray renderer, version 3.0. States Alias|Wavefront General Manager, Bob Bennett: "mental ray for Maya is not merely a "tacked on" translator that forces artists to jump back and forth between applications to achieve their desired look and feel. It is fully-integrated with Maya, allowing artists to remain in the Maya environment at all times so there is no need to re-learn a new texturing, shading, or lighting workflow."
