    Exclamation Mental Ray for 3ds Max 2018 - plugin downloads

    Hi all,

    you can download the most recent release of the Mental Ray for 3ds Max 2018 plugin below.

    It is free to use for interactive rendering and rendering of still frames from within 3ds Max 2018.
    The rendering of animations with Backburner or Mental Ray Standalone will ask for a license though.
    Update:
    The distributed rendering with Mental Ray Satellite is supported, see the separate installer below.

    Windows
    MRMAX2018_v1.0.exe
    MRMAX2018_Satellite_Installer_1.0.exe

    If you need a full license for your ongoing projects please do not hesitate to contact arc-licensing@nvidia.com.

    Happy rendering

    Best,
    Steffen

    hello,
    I have licensed versions of both 2018 and 2019 3dsmax.
    But dont have mentalray renderer.
    Is there any way to get mental ray renderer.
    Paid or free subscription.

    Please answer.
    As I am really confused. I read at so many places that you can buy nvidia mental ray seprarately AND you cant buy nvidia mental ray anymore.

    Do you have any information about availability of a Mental Ray plugin that would work with 3ds Max 2019? I have just installed the 2018 plugin and it seems to work, but since 3ds Max 2019 is now available I'd like to know if there will be a similar plugin offered.

    Is there going to be mentalray 2019 for 3dsmax 2019? because 3dsmax is already updated.

    Just download the free edition here in the forum. You can use it to render still frames and interactive rendering inside 3ds Max without a license.

    We have no plans to update the Mental Ray plugin for 3ds Max 2019. Not sure if the 2018 plugin works with 3ds Max 2019, but I believe it is unlikely.
