The script will set up the scene for the calculation of Ambient Occlusion Pass.

The script will switch off lights, Final Gathering, GI, Exposure, Enviroment map and create Standard material customized for AO pass and put it into override material slot in "processing" tab. AO map parameters should be set up by user himself.

After creating AO, you can return the initial state of the scene by turning off AO rendering mode (click again on the button).

A simple script for mental ray, which will give you a toggle for Global Illumination that you can have in a toolbar, quad or floater.

I created this as I found myself often turning GI on and off to test various assets in a scene in isolation.
