Mental Ray Rules. However, it all depends on what you are doing. The Maya Software Render is an amazingly efficient way to render basic stuff. You will use both for various reasons and it's good to learn the simple Maya Software render basics and then go on to Mental Ray. Rendering and optimizing for a scene can be really complex, and Mental Ray rendering is an art unto itself. Know both and the reasons for using one over the other. Happy Rendering. STU

I know alot....but not as much as the other guy.

it depends upon your requirements. from my experience i would say
if u r doing basic stuff that needs to look like 3d rendering then it's maya default renderer.

if architectural work v ray is best.

if fast efficient good looking results consistently then mental ray, the more u know it the better the renderings are.

if no shader setup time, lack of technical skills but access to huge renderfarm then maxwell.

but if your work consists of any of these:
very very high poly count, displacements, motion blur, very fine control over shading, character work and rendering to huge resolution for cinema quality work renderman is the best.
