So you’ve installed your 2018 version of 3ds Max, you’ve opened an old project only to find you no longer have Mental Ray as a renderer option.
Autodesk no longer ship 3ds Max with NVidia Mental Ray. But all is not lost, as long as you are happy to render locally. If you need to network render that you will need to buy NVidia Mental Ray render nodes.
But, if you are happy just to render locally you can download a free version of Mental Ray from the NVidia website.
