Car Paint and Rendering setup with Mental Ray by veXal

I just finished my project of Peugeot 307, I saw many tutorials of car rendering, but very few with the combination of mental ray and 3ds max. So I decided to make one :) I will use the 3ds max 6.0 and mental ray for this tutorial, and also my Peugeot Model. 1)Start 3ds max, first thing we need is to change the default renderer of max, open the Rendering dialogue box.

2)From "Choose Renderer" Dialogue box choose Mental Ray, and click ok.

3)The Rendering dialogue box will change with the addition of more and different options.

4)Now its time to make "Car Paint" material. Open the Material Editor, and click the "Standard" Button.

5)From "Material Map/Browser" Select "Shellac", and click ok.

8)Click the diffuse map slot, and select "falloff" from Material/map browser.

9)Change the black and white colors to the colors shown in the picture below. Top Color is R=200,G=0,B=0 and bottom Color is R=16,G=0,B=0.

10)Now modify the Curve in Mix curve option, as shown in the figure.
