mr Manager 2013


mr Options Manager adds  support in 3ds Max for Unified Sampling, Progressive Rendering, IBL, Importons and Irradiance Particles, which are hidden string options. The script enables you to save all settings into the file so you can load in a different session or send it to network rendering (except for IBL).

A description of the features are available on the mental ray help file.
