or at least let us configure all the options, even its an simplification of real "good settings" on mental ray, its not optimized for fast visualizations or sun studies. And please, please please on future revit releases, add at least the 3dmax or maya mentalray options. Wait 24 hours for a render that take 30 minutes today is plain stupid.

another thing, there is a mental images renderer for real time highend renders. You can see apreview of it on http://www.mentalimages.com/products/iray.html this link. This is not the future. We want decent speed of rendering NOW. Or we just going to change to vray gg

I think the 2011 mental ray in Revit has greatly improved, I benchmark very fast on exterior renders. I agree Max is faster but when using photometric lighting on interior scenes even in Max it is going to be much slower than standard lighting. It depends on what you want out of your render. An artistic view or a physical simulation. Nastyclown if all you want is speed you can achieve that with mental ray easily, why buy max AND vray... that makes no sense.  There are many techniques to creating faster renders in Revit, just remember that Revit "physically simulates" materials and photometric lighting.

im making asumtions here, so here it goes:

http://www.mentalimages.com/partners/oem-partners/autodesk.html seems to be that mental ray is the same from 2009... that means 2010 and 2011 version still have the same mental ray version. So you say its improved, i havent go into rac 2011, im guessing they have set the "high" or "medium" settings into a more optimized settings.

Maybe they are afraid of we dont want to use 3dmax anymore, but hey, whats a good proyect marketing without videos? 

 so... i want tobe able to set in proper way my renders from revit .. its anoyying exporting them into 3dmax every time you need 10+ renders.

In 2011 Revit mental ray utilizes more cores and nnow uses an autodesk shared library with .png images which render faster. Now when you export to 3ds Max with FBX you can LINK instead of import. I rendered this image at 600 dpi using the settings "best" in 25 minutes in Revit 2011 on a dual xeon quadcore workstation. not bad if you ask me, i believe for me, being fluent in 3ds Max.... interior renders in Revit are still a huge waste of time.

"In 2011 Revit mental ray utilizes more cores and nnow uses an autodesk shared library with .png images which render faster."   -  YES, that's true but still don't render faster than other softwares, maybe next version... I HOPE.

I imagine every release it will improve a little and hardware will be better, render times will lower but for rendering there will always be something better.

i agree, its wayyyyy too slow! My high quality renderings took 3.5 hours to complete... that is just too long. Perhaps it's because I'm using the 2010 version (which keeps on freezing, glitching and crashing, too), but regardless, I expect to be able to render images much quicker than 3.5 hours on high quality (probably shouldn't even take that long on best quality)

And I dont want to upgrade to the latest version unless i can be assured that it is considerably better and won't keep freezing and crashing, etc...
