    Default Mental Ray for 3ds Max 2018 Now Available - and Incldued with Iray for 3ds Max

    We’re proud to announce that NVIDIA Mental Ray for 3ds Max is now available for download here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/mental-ray-3ds-max.html

    NVIDIA Mental Ray for 3ds Max is fully functional and free for you to use while you are working within 3ds Max. If a license is purchased, it enables all forms of network rendering, Mental Ray Standalone and Satellite modes, as well as the separately available Iray for 3ds Max plug-in product.

    Existing owners of Iray for 3ds Max will find that their current licenses will work for Mental Ray for 3ds Max as well automatically with no licensing change. Your resulting license is now actually Iray and Mental Ray for 3ds Max.

    In bringing this to market, we’re also taking the opportunity to standardize how our products are being licensed. With Mental Ray for Maya we introduced the Pro-GPU license type and 5-Pack volume options. Both of these are now available for 3ds Max as well. Conversely, local standard licenses are now available for Mental Ray for Maya. Please note that it will be the next release of Iray for 3ds Max (version 2, scheduled for the end of May) that will be able to use the new Pro-GPU license.

    Finally, the pricing for floating/network licenses has been increased by about 1/3 to be more in line with industry norms. This is to cover the additional support costs we have in making customers successful with this enterprise licensing type.

    Yes - this is the current workaround - request a Maya along with your 3ds Max and you will get the download information for both.

    We're working to get the form corrected.

    Yes, this is only for 3ds Max 2018
    It is not possible for us to update previous 3ds Max versions because Mental Ray was not previously in "plugin form" in 3ds Max for us to replace or update.
    Going forward, we will support multiple 3ds Max versions (e.g., Max 2018 will remain supported as we update for Max 2019 and Max 2020).

    I would like to learn that "Does Iray support Multi sub map" or still you guys did not solve it. I'm using max 2016 and Multi sub does not work with Iray.
