5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect book for the TD light 16 April 2009
By T. BODIVIT - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just purchase this book 2 weeks ago and i am definitely happy to bought it.
All you ask yourself, the answers are there. the best way to achieve fine tuning and exceptional optimization. So, if you need a deep understanding of Mental Ray, let's go !
But be aware, if you only like light and play with button, that is not the right book. it's not a tutorial or a how to, it's a technical explanation of the action behind the code.
Very technical, but so useful to use all the power of this engine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for professionals using Mental Ray!!! 25 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This and volume two are absolute must haves for any CGI professionals using Mental Ray. Very thorough in their explanations and examples these books go to the very heart of the Mental Ray render structure. Both volumes, especially volume two, can be a little bit daunting to the uninitiated at first, but if you really are looking to dig into Mental Ray to get the best quality out of it you can, you must have these books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rendering With Mental Ray (Mental Ray Handbooks Volume 1) 11 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is old. The new revised edition is available. This one doesn't contain information on V 3.0 (only up to 2.1)
and it's the Same basic book. Shouldn't they have at least changed the color of the cover or something.
Why Amazon is still passing this off as current?? anyway. The new one is the same price, and it comes with a CD... go find the Vol 1:Second Revised edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars written from a programmers point of view 26 Oct. 2000
By 3dsteve - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you use 3d studio max and intend this book to really help out in those complex wont. This book is written for people who want to know exactly how light is mathmaticly computed in mental ray. Half the book is filled with usless equations that most designers would cringe at. The rendering recipes that it speaks of are useless and confusing. Im sending it back.
