Re: materials

In the most recent versions of Maya, the textures from older versions show up brighter and shinier. For now you can adjust them manually.

We don't have a button for that.
But you can make your own script and make a button for it.

Or you can use animBot, which does have that feature.

He is not set up for rendering and top of that he was released in the transition from Maya using MentalRay to Arnold, so you need to apply your own shaders are you like.

He's not really set up to render necessarily in mental ray and since he came out they have moved to Arnold anyway.
In a future version he could be optimized, but for now just change the shaders however you need.
