MR Proxies
« on: October 12, 2012, 09:42:17 AM »
This is just a quick basic question. Is there any advantage to making my trees MR Proxies before using forest pack as forest pack makes proxies any way?

Really not, Forest converts internally all objects to Mental Ray instances, so the render performance is practically the same.

You can find here a discussion about meshes/proxies. In this case for VRay, but it is applicable for Mental Ray as well:
