I've been rendering in mental ray and the mirror in my scene is displaying everything without textures?

Any ideas? So weird.

Mental ray is very picky about the file types it allows. What file type are you using for your textures? I've noticed it really only likes .tiff with microsoft byte order, but .jpegs should work. Otherwise you'll want to change them to .map? format. Here: http://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/index.html?url=mental_ray_for...

and google this: Map-converter
