Alias Mental Ray 3.4 goes 64-bit
For Modders with experience in 3D Modeling using Maya or other applications, Gamasutra informs that Alias Mental Ray 3.4, a rendering component of Maya, is getting an upgrade to support 64-bit technology computers. It is available for Enterprise Linux WS 3 (x86_64) and SUSE 9.1 (x86_64), running on Intel EM64T, AMD Opteron, or AMD Athlon 64 processors. Mental Ray 3.4 is compatible with Maya 6.5, but not with earlier versions. A Windows XP version is in development. This enhanced version for 64-bit technology promises faster processing times, physically accurate lighting, and improved rendering for more complex 3D scenes for games, film, broadcast, design visualization and digital publishing.
