fur rendering failed?????


hi there,

we are rendering a character with fur but sometimes maya does not render the frame, it gives us a message:

what is this all about? this is annoying and it eats up our time in rendering the animation, some frames are rendered and some frames are not.

any help is highly appreciated.

so, judging from that, I would say it doesnt have to do anything with your fur, but something is wrong with the lighting? do you have too many lights on the fur? how are you setting the lighting up?
