Aids in adding most of the undocumented dynamic attributes for mental ray for Maya. Many of these attributes can help speed translation and rendering time, and others enable precision control of the renderer.
Global attributes are made accessible through the mental ray globals tab, and per-object attributes are handled by a separate UI which contains helpful descriptions taken largely from the LA Mental Ray User's Group web page. The UI now supports more attributes than before and helps the user set attribute values at the same time that they add them. (www.lamrug.org/resources/maya6tips.html).
