Render problems
I'm having trouble rendering my animation i Maya 4. I have a few very simple frames, but they only render part of the image, then an exception occurs and the rendering aborts. I believe this started happening after I added some fur to my character. Does anyone here know if this is a known bug in Maya 4, and if there is some work around?

from the logfile:

the only thing that comes to my mind is memory.

I don't seem to have a memory problem. Maya don't even use half of the available memory when rendering (though it uses 100% CPU).

I have to correct my description above: it doesn't seem to be related to my character having fur. When I remove the fur, I still have the same problem.

Run Render Diagnotics from the Render menu. Does it generate any warnings or errors?

The Render Diagnostics is a neat feature, thank you for pointing me to it. Yes, it has a lot of warnings. They all go in the style of "nurbsSphereShape4Orig has no shading group associated with it. This means that it will not be rendered. Please assign it to a shading group". I guess I have to learn about shading groups.
