Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of Maya renderers, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…In this chapter we're going to start going into rendering.…We're going to start off with materials which allow…you to add color and texture to your models.…But before we do that, let me just give you a brief…overview of rendering in Maya so that way we can render samples.…Now rendering in Maya can be accomplished through a couple menu sets here.…We have under our Main menu set, we have a Rendering menu here.…And that gives us all of our…lighting, shading, texturing, and rendering that we want.…
We also have a shelf here which gives us all the basic…lights and materials that we want along with a couple of other functions.…Now, before we actually render a scene, let's go ahead and…make sure that we have all of our renders turned on.…Now Maya has a number of different renders, and…probably the most important one is called Mental Ray.…That's the one we'll be using the most.…But Mental Ray is a plugin.…And sometimes when you get Maya you, it may not be turned on.…
So let's go ahead and make sure that we have Mental Ray turned on.…
