The option in the rendering menu of Maya doesn't say "Mental Ray" anymore. Please help me to get it back, or even a better plugin for Maya game quality rendering.

A quick google search says that sometimes it "deactivates itself" and it has to be reactivated on the plugin manager (Window > Settings/Preferences > Plug-in Manager)

EDIT: According to this other post, Mental Ray's dll is called Mayatomr.mll

Mentalray.dll or something simular to that isn't in the folder at the plugin manager? – user5118 Feb 3 '11 at 15:18
Sorry, is that a question? – egarcia Feb 3 '11 at 16:33
@egarcia yes it is. Joris says that Mentalray.dll is not in the folder. – Elyse Feb 3 '11 at 19:57
@Joris: I've edited my answer to include the name of the Mental Ray dll. I hope this solves your issue. – egarcia Feb 4 '11 at 8:36
Thanks it helped! – user5118 Feb 4 '11 at 23:14
