I find my Maya quits rendering prematurely when using the normal batch renderer with the program running, so i have started batch rendering by calling render.exe
I set up my file to render certain frames, with the ray tracing flag on, and I also have Mental Ray set up in the render globals.
Everything started fine, however it no longer renders in mental ray. I have not changed the file in any way.
Is there any way to force mental ray from within the batch render lines?
Thanks for any help,
A sample line from my batch file:
C:\Progra~1\Alias\Maya6.0\bin\render -s 1591 -e 1600 -ert true -im Office x:\maya\projects\default\scenes\office33.mb
EDIT2: Ooops, didn't notice the metal ray/rendering forums down the bottom
