paint effects in mental ray

i've started working with a script that generates
animated cylinders from selected curves.
when i render the result with Maya Software, it
looks ok, but with mental ray it shows black.
i saw that it has a paint effects node so i thought
that may be the case.. can it?
or perhaps it's something else?
thanks :)

I always convert to polygons.
