An overview of MentalCore. The rendering plugin, which is intended to improve workflow between Maya and mental ray, now includes new subsurface shaders and support for the SprayTrace interactive renderer.
CoreCG has updated its MentalCore production rendering toolkit for Maya.
MentalCore 1.3 features a range of new shaders, including a colour bleed SSS shader, and support for SprayTrace, Holomatix’s real-time interactive preview renderer for Maya.
The update also makes MentalCore compatible with Maya 2013 and its own new rendering features, including those made available through the update of the built-in version of mental ray to mental ray 3.10.
MentalCore is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, at a standard price of $199 for a node-locked licence, or $249 for a floating licence and five render licences. The upgrade is free to registered users.
