Default Rendering Problems with Mental Ray

Hello
Im a newb to this forum, so I apologise if im doing this incorrectly.

I have been making up a scene and up until this morning it was working and rendering fine, then along came a rendering problem, when i come to render out my scene i get a

// Warning: There is no renderable render layer. Nothing is rendered.

I then re-started the scene and did a test render after dropping the first plane and I get the same message, It was working and rendering up until I started to add IBL, is there something I might have done in the process? I have the file set to the correct folder in the setting, I cannot figure out what it might be?

Hi, welcome.

don't you have online help from escape studios?

anyway, its hard to tell because the screenshot is cropped so i can't see your render layers but maybe you just haven't got one selected. its been a while since i used them.

Yeah but the time difference means I wont get an answer for a long time so I thought while I was working on it I would see if anyone could help here, not to worry, i play around with the settings and see if that helps
