  Description :
    This script provide a UI to control the mental ray Progressive Rendering 
    feature available in Mental Ray Version 3.7.53.0  
 
    The script add all the required string options to the miDefaultOptions node
    to enable the feature in Maya and offers a user friendly UI to set the 
    progressive rendering options values
 
    The progressive rendering work for both normal render and IPR render
 
    Refer to the mental ray Manual for more details on the Progressive Rendering options
    https: download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2010help/mr/manual/node76.html#opt:progressive
 
 
  Limitationa: 
    IPR refresh: Changing the value of the Progressive Rendering Options window during an
                 active IPR session doesn't refresh the IPR. 
                 This is due to a limitation of the string options and the Maya IPR.  
                 Changing string options doesn not trigger an IPR refresh.
    Solution: Restart the IPR to accept the changes.
 
    Some artefacts may be present when doing a region render.
    Solution: launch a render current frame instead of a region render.
