The Options Block

  • Thomas Driemeyer
Part of the mental ray® Handbooks book series (MENTALRAY, volume 1)


Every scene file must have an options block that specifies various operational modes of the mental ray rendering software. More than one options block may exist, but only one can be named in a render statement that initiates rendering. This section lists all available options. The page numbers in the tables refer to more detailed explanations in other chapters.
