Digital Tutors mental ray training

My friend Sylvain Berger (who also runs a rendering blog over at http://kobayashystips.blogspot.com/) alerted me to availability of mental ray training over at Digital Tutors.

You can sign up for an account and access a subset of the trainings free of charge as samples. One of these free samples, which Sylvain points out, happens to be a really nice training on using the production shaders in Softimage, which I can recommend.

For those Softimage users who took my masterclass (below) and were annoyed by all the UI happening inside 3ds Max, and wanted to find those equivalent buttons and shaders in Softimage, this training is for you.

Hi Zap.

I saw that Maya2010 Mental Ray 3.7 has activate the option of "Progressive Rendering" (no Progressive Final Gather), Is there a way to get it active inside Max2010?



I come here humbly ask you to take a look at some studies that I have.
I started studying 3DS MAX it a little over 2 months, study at home alone.
Thanks, I await your opinions and criticism, as they will be very important to me.
Thank you.

Please ! I beg you, all digital tutors around the world, please, make a tutorial for Maya !!!

This is the most used 3D software around the world, and it's impossible to find any "easy to do" tutorial for the production shaders ...
What a shame !
I'm a novice ( not so bad, but still novice... ) and I also want to learn some cool Live Action stuff !
God, listen to my prayers !
