Solid Angle Maya To Arnold 2.0.2 for Maya 2016-2018 | 182.2 mb
Solid Angle has released version 2.0.2 of Arnold for Maya (or MtoA). This plug-ins provides a bridge to the Arnold renderer from within Maya's standard interface. MtoA is now shipping with the Arnold core.

Release Date: August 8, 2017

This version includes the following changes:

- Render Setup overrides were not updated in IPR
- ARV : Support "Isolate Selected" wasn't working with procedurals
- Fixed crash when a new standard_volume shader is assigned to Bifrost Aero volume
- Legacy "bifrostAeroMaterial" was assigned to Bifrost Aero when the bifrost plugin was loaded after MtoA
- "Convert Deprecated Shaders" improved for metal shaders
- Applying standard surface presets didn't set all attributes properly, thus giving sometimes wrong results.
- Maya native shaders exported as standard_surface (instead of legacy "standard")
Render to Texture Improvements :
- AOVs can now be rendered during the baking
- UV range (start / end) can be set
- Normal offset exposed to avoid precision artefacts
New Features / Parameters :
- Added "Indirect Specular Blur" in the Render Settings
- Arnod Photometric lights now included in File Path Editor
- OSL : stdosl.h and oslutil.h are now included in MtoA
- When OCIO is used in Maya color managements, a node color_manager_ocio is exported to avoid dependencies with SynColor
- Changed the UI for "Render Stats" parameters in StandIns, now matching the way parameters are stored internally. It is now possible to override them with Maya Render Setup
Incompatible Changes :
- In Maya 2018, the bifrost procedural is no longer included in MtoA. It's now installed by the Maya Update 1, in a separate folder
