I hope this helps. Good luck.
So you right click the maya mb file? I just tried that but did nt get a render option, any chance you could post a screen grab Dann?
Ive been creating a text file with the render flags (for thre rendering engine that I want) with the file extension and then saving that out as a .bat file to render with, never heard of your method, which would be great!
