Can anyone help or direct me to a tutorial to render with mental ray. I am experiencing problems. I cant get mental ray to properly batch render and I've tried many things. So any help would be appreciated.
k I created a scene and I try to batch render with mental ray and it doesnt work. I can get the maya render to work but mental ray option is seperate from that and I get this message. I have set the obvious setting but there are setting that I cant find. so I think it has to do with setting. I get this message when I batch render.
// Mayatomr: Rendering temporary file: C:/Documents and Settings/Morgan Wykkoff/Desktop/aniamtion/movie.mb //
// Error: Cannot find procedure "miProgress". //
// Mayatomr: Batch render started. See C:/Documents and Settings/Morgan Wykkoff/Desktop/aniamtion/mentalray.log for more information. //
// Mayatomr: Batch rendered images will be written to C:/Documents and Settings/Morgan Wykkoff/Desktop/aniamtion/images //
Try it through the command promt, that's what I had to do(although Terminal in OS X). I beleive the command is: mayarender_with_mr -file "/path/to/the/file.mb". Renders the image in the default images folder in your project folder.
