    Exclamation Point Cloud Support for Mental Ray for 3ds Max 2018

    Hi all,

    for those who missed the support for rendering point clouds with mental ray in recent 3ds Max 2018,
    we can provide a temporary solution. Please follow the steps below.

    Download the following package:
    3dsmax_2018_mentalray_shaders_autoload.zip

    After unpacking, the resulting folder and its content should be moved or copied to the 3ds Max installation folder at:
    C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\Plugins\NVIDIA\Shaders

    The final folder layout should then look like this:

    Restart 3ds Max. The Point Cloud map should now be available in 3ds Max, and mental ray will render them as expected.

    Let us know if it works.

    Please note, that the next update of the plugin will contain this fix.

    Best,
    Steffen
