Mental ray in Renderworks

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I know renderworks is powered by Cinema4D render engine, and Cinema4D render engine contains mental ray feature. So could we say that Renderworks also contains Mental ray?

Since Mental Ray for C4D (now Nvidia's Iray for Cinema 4D) is available as a plug-in only on Windows and not on Mac OS, I would doubt it.

Hopefully, newer version of Vectorworks will have better 2-way file interchange with C4D, so all of your renderings that require that level of realism could be handled more easily by C4D.

Correct, since this is not built in to C4D and it just a plugin, we can't harness it directly in Vectorworks. If C4D ever builds it in by default, this may change.
